Trois-Rivieres, QC - Kinnder Jackson with driver Justin Filion, moved first-over against Stock and blew right by them on the final turn in capturing the $10,000 second round of the Breeders Cup Series at the Hippodrome 3R Sunday. The eighth race co-feature for three-year-old harness racing pacing colts saw the overwhelming race favorite, 1/5 Hudson Phil, go off-stride for driver Clarke Steacy at the start of the race. That opened the race right away as Big Mach and driver Guy Gagnon shot out to the early lead, but it was last year's champion, Stock, who pressed to the front for driver Stephane Brosseau and led the field at the opening quarter mile in :28. They raced that way past the half in :57.4, but at the three-quarters in 1:27.1, driver Justin Filion was sitting third with Kinnder Jackson and moved him to the outside and the son of Allamerican Native and grabbed control of the lead by the top of the stretch. From that point on, Kinnder Jackson was not going to be caught, drawing off to win by six and one-quarter lengths in 1:56.1. Stock was second with Power Fog (Pierre Luc Roy) third. Kinnder Jackson paid $21.90 to win. Bred, owned and trained by Denitza Petrova of Melbourne, it was the second straight win for Kinnder Jackson and his sixth win in seven starts this year.

In the second race, the first of the two Breeders Cup divisions for three-year-old pacing fillies, Katniss S BG ($3.00) and driver Pascal Berube make it two straight wins in the series. The daughter of Mach Three, bred and owned by Sylvain Descheneaux and Gaston Bibeau of Sorel-Tracy and trained by Richard Moreau saw Lit De Rose and driver Pierre Luc Roy shoot to the early lead by the opening quarter in :27.2. Berube then moved Katniss S BG first-over and with a major burst of speed, took the lead away from Lit De Rose before the half mile in :57.4. From there Berube held the field at bay, leading at the three-quarters in 1:26.4 before opening up to win by five and one-quarter lengths in 1:56.1. Lit De Rose was second with D Gs Shadowbell (Jonathan Lachance) third. The fifth race second filly division saw Butterfly BG ($3.90) and driver Guy Gagnon go wire-to-wire by one length in 1:59.3 over the pocket-sitting Sharks Summrshandy (Pascal Berube) with Perfect Glory (Sylvain Lacaille) a game third after racing first-over in the backstretch. It was the second straight win and third on the season for Butterfly BG. The Sportswriter filly is trained by Gagnon, bred and owned by Gaston Bibeau of Sorel-Tracy. The Invitational-Handicap Pace in the third race saw the return to H3R of three-time Quebec Champion, Atomic Million AM, and he came home not to lose. Atomic Million AM ($2.50) and driver Guy Gagnon came after Chaleurs Ad (Kevin Maguire) and took command at the quarter mile in :26.2. From there it was all Atomic Million Am. Gagnon kept his steed in control passing the three-quarters in 1:24.4 and then drew off in the stretch for the race fans, winning by four open lengths in 1:53.4. Solid Performance (Pascal Berube) was second with Windsun Cheyenne (Marie Auger) third. It was the third win this year for Atomic Million AM, a seven-year-old gelding by Million Dollar Cam, who now has career earnings of more than $278,000 for breeder, owner and trainer, Alain Martin.

The time of the race was 4:06, nearly four seconds slower than the world and track record at H3R.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - Harness racing driver Guy Gagnon came into the Hippodrome 3R needing just two victories to score his 5,000th career win and it took him until the last race on the program to get the job done. In the fourth race trot he was able to win with ease aboard Irish Master ($3.80) in 2:03.3. It was a romp as they won by nine and one-quarter lengths. Then Gagnon had to wait until the eighth race, the last on the program to get the job done. He was driving Evergreen Artist ($5.00) and they left from post six and led from start to finish, winning with ease by three and three-quarter lengths in a lifetime best clocking of 1:55. "This horse was just bought and it was its first start with the trainer (Francis Richard)," Gagnon explained. "He said that the horse was ready and it was." "5,000 victories you do not that alone," Gagnon said. "I must thank all of the trainers who gave me the drives over the years. I feel very proud and thank everyone who has supported me in my career." It was just two weeks ago that driver Simon Delisle of Dechambault scored a big upset with his trotting mare and sure enough he was able to do it again at the Hippodrome 3R Tuesday evening. With a change in tactics from her previous start, trainer/driver Simon Delisle and EAU Naturelle was able to again beat race favorite Y S Suzanne and driver Guy Gagnon in the third and final leg of the Quebec-Bred Series. Now the four and five-year-old trotters must wait until Thursday, August 9 when the top eight-point earners in the series return to H3R for their respective $30,000 finals. In the third race division for mares, Delisle went to the lead with EAU Naturelle instead of looking for cover to come off of later in the race as he had done in his last two starts. With Y S Suzanne on their back in the two-hole, Delisle and EAU Naturelle led the field past the opening quarter in :30.3 and that was when driver Stephanie Brosseau came first-over with and pressed to the half mile in a mild 1:01.3.t Brosseau kept the pressure on EAU Naturelle and they raced as a team going into the backstretch. Then Gagnon pulled out from being Delisle with Y S Suzanne and began to follow HP Run Like Mom and then tipped three-wide and looped around HP Run Like Mom as they passed the three-quarters in 1:31.2. Around the final turn Gagnon tried to gain ground on Delisle but could not. Delisle and EAU Naturelle were strong in the stretch and won with ease by two and one-quarter lengths in 2:00.3. Y S Suzanne was second with Linda's Jewel (Mario Lachance) third. Last time out EAU Naturelle beat Y S Suzanne at odds of 22-1. This time it was at odds of 6-1. It was the third win in eight starts this year for the five-year-old daughter of Windsong Espoir. She is owned by Chantal Auger, Raymond Bouffard, Rejean Page and Anne Delisle, all of Quebec. She paid $15.10 to win. The last time EAU Naturelle and Delisle drew the rail post position as she started from tonight, she also won, leading from start to finish. Simon Delisle scored an even bigger upset victory in the very next race, winning with Scout Says at 14-1, paying $31.50 to win. In the horse division of the Quebec-Bred Series, the rivalry continued between Kinnder Dangerous and Capteur De Reve. The sixth race co-feature began with Kinnder Dangerous and driver Justin Filion shooting out to the early lead with Holiday Party (Pascal Berube) following their cover in second place to the opening quarter mile in :29. Then as they came to half mile in 1:00.1, driver Pierre Luc Roy came first-over started moving toward the race leaders. Roy did not charge up and try to pass Kinnder Dangerous. He just allowed Capteur De Reve to sit alongside Filion until the three-quarters in 1:28.4. It was then that Filion asked Kinnder Dangerous for more and Capteur De Reve was not only able to match his speed but was also gaining ground. Coming down the stretch it was a two-horse race, neck and neck, head and head to the finish with Capteur De Reve the strong horse, winning by a neck in 1:58.4. Orlys Dream (Mario Lachance) was third. In four meetings this season, the score is tied with both horses having beaten each other twice. For Capteur De Reve, a four-year-old gelded son of Muscle Mass, it was his second win in five starts this year. He is trained by Maxime Velaye for owner/breeder Ecurie Provoquante of Mirabel, paying $6.30 to win. Track Notes: Requested ($3.60) became the winningest horse at H3R this season, scoring his fifth win, all at H3R, in the seventh race for driver Francis Picard.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - Rivalries are great in all sports whether it be hockey, football, baseball or harness racing. And a major rivalry will continue Tuesday night at the Hippodrome 3R with the second round of the Quebec-Bred Series for four and five-year-old trotters. There are two divisions, one for the mare's and one for the horses and it is in the fifth race horse division that the rivalry will continue once again between Kinnder Dangerous, Holiday Party and Capteur De Reve. These three horses have been battling for weeks and all three have captured one of their meetings. Capteur De Reve, after two unsuccessful attempts in the Invitational-Handicapped Trot (he had post 8 both weeks), came to life in the opening round of the series for trainer Maxime Velaye. It was an epic battle with rival Kinnder Dangerous as these two went head and head from after the half mile marker with Capteur De Reve digging in at the finish for a 2:00.1 triumph. "He is feeling great," Velaye said of Capteur De Reve. "Oh yeah is he ready for round 2 and I am pretty sure that Kindder Dangerous and Holiday Party will also be ready to battle." This week, Capteur De Reve drew post six for driver Pierre Luc Roy and they are the morning line favorite. "I was super happy that he was back to his old self last start," Velaye explained. "We made a couple changes in shoeing and his bridle and put a head pole inside. So that combined with the super drive of Pierre Luc was the ingredients for our success two weeks ago." Kinnder Dangerous has his best starting position of season, drawing post two for driver Justin Filion. They lost their last start to Capteur De Reve by three-quarters of a length. Prior to that they were second also to Holiday Party in the Invitational-Handicapped. In his first start of the season the four-year-old son of Northern Star not only won but scored a lifetime mark of 1:59.1 for owner, breeder, trainer Denitza Petrova. And there is also Holiday Party who starts from post five for driver Pascal Berube. After winning two starts back in the Invitational Trot, he was third to Capteur De Reve and Kinnder Dangerous. The trotting mares get underway in the third race where odds on favorite will be Y S Suzanne, who starts from the rail for driver Guy Gagnon. This superb mare by Angus Hall is trained and co-owned by Blake Curran of Perth, Ontario with Jason Jamieson. She now sports lifetime earnings of over $146,000. Shipping back to H3R for the series from Rideau Carlton, Y S Suzanne is on a two-race winning streak. Just two starts back the five-year-old mare took her lifetime mark at Rideau in 1:56.2 and at H3R she led from start to finish in 2:00.2. Other contenders in the race include Lucky Promesses (post 4), who was second to Y S Suzanne in their last start, Vanilla Star (post 3), a 2:01 winner in a qualifying race at H3R and Eau Naturelle (post two).

Trois-Rivieres, QC - Harness racing driver Guy Gagnon was on a tear at the Hippodrome 3R Tuesday evening, winning five of the nine races on the program. Gagnon started off like a rocket, winning the first race with Missionoftheheart in 2:01.3, then the second race with Mrs Dragonfire in 2:00. In the third race, the mares division of the opening round of the Quebec-Bred Series for four and five-year-old trotters, it was all Y S Suzanne and Guy Gagnon for his third straight win on the night. Lucky Promesses and trainer/driver Jerome Lombart were able to out leave Y S Suzanne and take early command of the lead, but Gagnon wanted his mare back on top and they were by the opening quarter mile in :29. From that point on, Y S Suzanne and Gagnon led to the half in :59.4 and the three-quarters in 1:29.3 before Lombart pulled the pocked going into the final turn and nearly caught up with Y S Suzanne at the top of the stretch. But Y S Suzanne kicked in another gear and went on to win by one length in 2:00.2. Lucky Promesses was second with EAU Naturelle (Simon Delisle) third. The Future Stars Champion in Quebec at age 2, Y S Suzanne is now 5. She is a daughter of Angus Hall, trained by Blake Curran and owned by Jason Jamieson and Blake Curran of Perth, Ontarion. It was her fourth win this year and she paid just $2.10 to win as the overwhelming race favorite.

The seventh race was the horse division of the Quebec-Bred Series and surprising to the wagering crowd, last year's three-year-old champion, Capteur De Reve and driver Pierre Luc Roy were the winners at odds of 8-1, but what a race it was. Kinnder Dangerous and driver Justin Filion left and got the lead away from Holiday Party (Pascal Berube) as they went to the opening quarter in :28.4. Then by the half mile in 1:00.3, it was Captuer De Reve and Roy coming first-over. Captuer De Reve was able to grind his way and collar Kinnder Dangerous at the three-quarters in 1:31.2 as Berube took Holiday Party three wide around the final turn. Kinnder Dangerous was back on top as they started down the stretch and battled Capteur De Reve head and head right to the finish and with a final surge, Capteur De Reve won by a neck in 2:00.1. Holiday Party was just one length back in third place. It was the first win in three starts for Capteur De Reve. The gelded son of Muscle Mass is trained by Maxime Velaye and was bred and is owned by Ecurie Provoquante of Mirabel. He paid an amazing $18.10 to win.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - The betting fans knew that Dance With Joe would not let them down as the 2/5 favorite in the feature pace at the Hippodrome 3R Tuesday and he did a fancy three-wide two-step to get the job done. This was the start of Tuesday night racing at H3R this season. The seventh race feature started off with Hot Rock Star and driver Guy Gagnon taking the quick early lead with Matt's Phil (Pierre Luc Roy) sitting the two-hole trip to the opening quarter mile in :27.3. By the half mile marker in :57.1, Hot Rock Star was pressured on the outside by El Torero and driver Denis Audet with Fortune Fella (Stephane Brosseau) second over and third over in the field was Simard and Dance With Joe. At the three-quarters, Simard swung Dance With Joe three-wide and and just about cleared the field on the final turn as Fortune Fella was also in hot pursuit. As they started down the stretch, Simard got Dance With Joe to kick in just a little more and they went on to win by one and three-quarter lengths in 1:56.1. Fortune Fella, an 18-1 long shot, was second with El Torero third at 9-1. It was the second straight win this year for Dance With Joe. The five-year-old gelded son of Roll With Joe is trained by Christine Davignon and owned by Daniel Dulude of Ste-Martine. He paid $2.80 to win. The fastest mile on the twi-light evening card was impressively scored by Hooter Shooter and driver Stephane Gendron in the 6th race pace. They were parked out first-over from the half mile pole against pacesetter Code Word (Stephane Brosseau), getting the lead by the three-quarters and pulling away from the field to win in 1:55. Guy Gagnon was the only horsemen on the card to score a double. Live racing resumes at H3R on Sunday, first race post time at 12:50 pm. For more information, visit www.quebecjockeyclub.com.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - The Hippodrome 3R will host its first Tuesday evening card of the season May 29 and popular harness racing drivers Guy Gagnon and Richard Simard will be joining the colony for this evening. First race post time is new for this season at 6:30 pm. Guy Gagnon has drives in seven of the eight races while Richard Simard has three drives. Both drivers have been competing regularly at Rideau Carleton Raceway, where Louis-Phillipe Roy is the leading driver with Gagnon second and both Richard Simard and H3R's own Stephane Brosseau are tied for fourth place. At H3R, Brosseau is having a great start to the race meet with 14 wins in the first five days of the season. His "batting average" or UDRL is a very impressive .530. Brosseau has drives in six of the races Tuesday evening. The main event Tuesday takes place in the seventh race pace where Dance With Joe will take on the red hot Appleby Hanover. Dance With Joe and driver Jocelyn Gendron start from post five and returns from Rideau off a 1:54.4 triumph, his first of the season in four starts. The five-year-old gelded son of Roll With Joe had a perfect trip in that mile for trainer Christine Davignon. He is the 5/2 morning line favorite. Appleby Hanover returns to race on just two days rest. He raced at H3R on Sunday and now starts from post eight on Tuesday night for driver Tyler Jones. The young reinsman has gotten along very well with Appleby Hanover as they are going for their third straight win. Two weeks ago, Appleby Hanover scored in 1:58.1 for Jones, but last week was something special. Sitting a two-hole trip to Sea Donkey, Jones pulled Appleby Hanover first-over in the backstretch the second time, collared the race leader by the three-quarters, cleared to the lead on the final turn and went on to win by a half-length in 1:55.1. It was a lifetime mark for Appleby Hanover, a five-year-old gelding by Well Said. He is trained and owned by Michel Allard of Saint-Esprit.

TROIS-RIVIERES, QC - The trotters take center stage at the Hippodrome 3R Sunday afternoon with four return winners in the eighth race feature. Yet, the 5/2 morning line favorite is not a return winner. That honoree is Commissioner Daley, who starts from post five for co-owner, trainer and driver Guy Gagnon. Returning to H3R from Rideau Carlton, Commissioner Daley is having a superb season. The six-year-old gelded son of Conway Hall already sports seven wins, the fastest a 1:57 triumph at Rideau. Two starts back he was able to lead from start to finish in 1:58.2. His main competition will come from Jamigo in post three for driver Danuel LaFlamme. Returning from a long stint in the USA, Jamigo was on a roll at H3R winning three of four starts before leaving Quebec for owner/trainer Manon Lamothe of Terrebonne. In his last start in the USA, Jamigo was able to post a nose victory in 1:57.2, his fastest winning time this year. Four Starz Speed is always a major threat whenever he races. The "old man" of the field at age 12, still can show his heels to his younger rivals. Hailing from the Maguire Stable, Four Starz Speed starts from post four with Kevin Maguire driving. Last week he was second in the Invitational and three starts back he was a winner in 1:59. Both Tuscans Memory (post six) and KFB Amigo Cool (post eight) are return winners moving up in class to take on the best trotters at H3R. Rounding out the nine-horse field are Artemis Duharas (post one), K Rkadbra (post two), Dance Hall George (post seven) and Federal Strike (post nine). First race post time Sunday at 12:30 pm.
