Trois-Rivieres, QC - Former track record holder and two-time Quebec-Bred Champion Seeyou Men makes a return to the races at the Hippodrome 3R Sunday after a few months in the field.

Seeyou Men starts from post four for driver Francis Picard in the third race, which is the featured Preferred Trot.

Sired by Muscle Mass, the seven-year-old gelding is trained by Daniel Martin for breeder Chantal Gravel of St-Cyrille-De-Wendover, who co-owns the horse with Catheline Pelletier of Mirabel. He currently has $268,000 earned in his career.

The last start Seeyou Men made was in the $30,000 Quebec-Bred Series Final at H3R back on July 14 when he finished a game second to rival Capteur De Reve.

Then it was rest time according to Daniel Martin.

"He has had no injuries," said Martin, "We just wanted to give him a nice break after making 20 starts."

Seeyou Men scored his lifetime mark of 1:55.4 this season and last week won his qualifying race at H3R in 2:02.4 by three open lengths. He is listed in the morning line at odds of 7/2.

"For this Sunday there is no pressure on Seeyou Men," Martin said. "He always gives everything he has. He is a very good horse."

Capteur De Reve is also in the field and starts from the rail for driver Stephane Gendron. He is the only trotter who is a four-time Quebec Series Champion. The five-year-old gelding, also by Muscle Mass, is trained by Maxime Velaye for the Provoquante Stable of Mirabel, who bred and owns Capteur De Reve.

Although winless since August 25 at Rideau Carleton Raceway, Capteur De Reve was second in his last start by a neck in 1:56.4 at Rideau Carleton.

The race favorite is none other than Volare from post five for driver Tyler Jones.

This five-year-old gelding by Conway Hall won his last start at H3R in the Preferred Trot with a 2:00.2 triumph. He has a record of 1:52.4 and earlier this season won at Yonkers Raceway in 1:57.1.

He is trained by Michel Allard for his son, Rene Allard, of Matamoras, PA.

Rounding out the field is the lone mare in the contest, Missionoftheheart (post 2) and former Quebec-Bred Champion Holiday Party (post 3).

Post time Sunday is 1:00 pm. For a free race program and to view the races live via the internet, visit www.quebecjockeyclub.com.
