Trois-Rivieres, QC - The spotlight is on three-year-old trotters Friday at the Hippodrome 3R as the Quebec Jockey Club hosts the second round of the Trophee Des Eleveurs (Breeders Trophy) Series with two $10,000 divisions.

There are three legs of preliminary actions with the top eight point earners winning a spot on the gate in the $65,000 finals on Sunday, September 27.

The colts are in the limelight first in the second race with eight starters. The favorite is Kenogami Coco from post seven with Stephane Brosseau in the sulky. This gelded son of Wheeling N Dealin was doing just that two starts back when he won the opening round of the series in 1:58.2.

Last week Kenogami Coco took on older horses at H3R and was parked out from the start and was fifth. He is trained by Dany Fontaine for owner-breeder Jean-Frances and Marie-Claude Reid of Anjou.

Starting alongside Kenogami Coco is last year's two-year-old champion Babidibou (post six) with Stephane Gendron driving. He was third last week in the Preferred Trot at H3R and broke stride in the opening round of the series. The son of Royalty For Life is trainer by Maxime Velaye for owners Isidoro Russo of Montreal and Guy Corbeil of Mirabel.

Frido PV (post 3) is another top contender, shipping in from Rideau Carleton Raceway where last week he in 1:57 for trainer/driver Yves St Jacques. The Muscle Mass colt was third two weeks back in the series. He will be driven by Richard Simard.

Other contenders include return winner Laval Titan (post one), Master Gale (post 4) and Genetic Taurus (post 5).

The fillies take to the track in the fourth race with nine starters headed by opening round winner Miss Melodie from post five for driver Stephane Gendron. This daughter of Prestidigitator sat an easy pocket trip to Anotherdeal in the series and won by one and one-half lengths in a lifetime best 2:03.4.

Miss Melodie was unraced at age two and has two wins this year for trainer Maxime Velaye. She was bred by and is owned by Determination of Montreal.

HP Starlett returns to H3R for the first time this season and goes from post three for driver Stephane Brosseau. She has won this season in a lifetime best 1:58.4 at Rideau Carleton in the Grassroots Series. She is trained by Daniel Martin for owner-breeders Claude Hamel of Ayers'S Cliff and Guy Desautels of Montreal.

Anotherdeal starts from post seven for driver Sylvain Lacaille, Rideau Carleton invader Lindas Pride has post two for trainer/driver Richard Simard and Kinnder High Class starts from the rail for driver Pierre Luc Roy.

Track Notes: First race post time Friday is 4:00 pm. On Sunday is the second round of the Future Stars Series for two-year-old pacing colts and fillies. There are two divisions for each gender. For a free race program, visit
