Trois-Rivieres, QC - Two track records fell by the wayside as the Hippodrome 3R played host to their Super Sunday featuring eight harness racing series championship finals with purses on the card totaling more than $508,000. It was the richest day of horse racing in all of Quebec and Mother Nature cooperated with warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine. Here is a brief description of all eight finals. $55,000 2YO Filly Trot Final - No surprises in this non-wagering division as track record holder Mag N Lady once again distanced the field (the other three in the race all broke stride). Trained, driven and co-owned by Jean Francois Maguire of Ontario with Julie Malenfant, Richard Legris and Pascale Maguire, Mag N Lady covered the one-mile trot in 2:02. New Road (Steeven Genois) was second with XOXO (Jerome Lombart) third. Sired by Royalty For Life, it was the fourth straight win for Mag N Lady, a clean sweep of all three preliminary rounds and the final. She was bred by Jeffrey Gillis and Gerald Stay. $55,000 2YO Colt Trot Final - Undefeated Kinnder Dangerzone made it four for four in his young career as he grinded out an impressive 2:01 triumph. Parked out first-over against pacesetter Eyes For Justice (Steeven Genois), Kinnder Dangerzone and driver Pierre-Luc Roy sat first-over from the opening quarter mile until the backstretch and once on the lead he pulled away from the field to win by four and one-quarter lengths. Hall Win (Louis-Philippe Roy) was second with Eyes Of Justice was third. Sired by Northern Escort, it was a lifetime mark for Kinnder Dangerzone, who was bred and is owned and trained by Denitza Petrova of Melbourne. He paid $3.00 to win. $55,000 2YO Filly Pace Final - Driver Sylvain Filion did not come back to Quebec just for the poutine. He was back at H3R for Super Sunday to drive his dad's horses and he did not disappoint. Leaving with Celia Bayama, they had it easy through a :28.1 quarter and :58.4 half mile before CL Sportsextreme and driver Jonathan Lachance came after them and the two drew away from the field in the backstretch, battling head and head to the three-quarters in 1:26.2. Then Ceila Bayama pulled away and set the track record with a 1:55.3 clocking. CL Sportsextreme was second with Platine Alpha (Pascal Berube) third. The previous record for two-year-old pacing fillies was 1:56.2 set by Behaven Myself (Pascal Berube) in 2018. Trained by Yves Filion, owned and bred by his Bayama Farms of Saint-Andre-D'Agenteuil, it was the second straight win and four of the year for the daughter of Bettor's Delight. She paid $2.40 to win. $55,000 2YO Colt Pace Final - Cadillac Bayama (Sylvain Filion), the 1/5 betting favorite, got roughed up early by pacesetter YS Do It Right ($4.90) and driver Louis-Philippe Roy, and had nothing left in the tank in the stretch as YS Do It Right won by one length in a lifetime best mile of 1:55.2. Roy parked out Filion to a :27.2 opening quarter, forcing Filion into the two-hole. Then after a half in :56.3 and three-quarters in 1:27, Cadillac Bayama could not catch YS Do It Right, who won by one and one-quarter lengths. The Light Speed (Pascal Berube) was third. It was the second win this year for YS Do It Right. The colt by Bettor's Delight is trained by Francis Richard for owner-breeder Yves Sarrazin of La Presentation. $65,000 3YO Filly Trot Final - Kinnder High Class ($2.20) was the overwhelming 1/9 favorite and raced like it as she set a track record. The daughter of Royalty For Life went right to the lead for driver Pierre-Luc Roy, held the field at bay through fractions of :29.1, :59.1 and 1:28.4 and as the field came at her at the three-quarters, she pulled away and scored a three and one-half length triumph in 1:58.1. HP Starlette (Stephane Brosseau) was second with Judy's Program (Sylvain Filion) third. The previous track record for three-year-old trotting fillies was 1:59.2 set by Viva Bayama (Yves Filion) in 2014. It was the third straight win, a lifetime mark and the seventh victory in ten starts this year for Kinnder High Class. It made for an exciting championship double for owner, trainer and breeder Denitza Petrova. Kinnder High Class is from the mare, Majestic Joy, and is a half-sister to Kinnder Dangerzone. $65,000 3YO Colt Trot Final - Babidibou was the reigning champion from last year but was denied a second title as Kenogami Coco ($5.50) was at his best. The gelded son of Wheeling N Dealin was parked out first-over against Frido PV through fractions of :28.1, :58.4 and 1:27.3, all the while giving Babidibou (Stephane Gendron) great second-over cover. All three trotters were in contention coming down the stretch and Kenogami Coco was much the best, winning by one length in 1:57.3. Babidibou was second with Frido PV third. It was the third straight win for Kenogami Coco, who is trained by Dany Fontaine for owner-breeder Jean-Francis & Marie Claude Reid of Anjou. $65,000 3YO Filly Pace Final - The build-up of Acaena De Chakrika vs Streakazana lived up to its hype, but all the glory went to Godiva Lovely Lady ($9.30), who snuck up the inside to win it all in 1:56.4. Acaena De Chakrika (Stephane Brosseau) was parked out to the lead in a :27 first quarter by Godiva Lovely Lady and driver-trainer Guy Gagnon. She then took command and led to the half mile in :57 as co-favorite Streakazana and Louis-Philippe Roy came first-over and pressed the pace to the three-quarters in 1:26.4. Then coming for home as those two began to tire, Gagnon came up the inside for the win by one length over Acaena De Chakrika with Streakazana third. It was the third win this year for Godiva Lovely Lady and a lifetime mark. Sired by Badlands Hanover, she is owned and bred by Raymond Larose of St-Henri-De-Levis. $65,000 3YO Colt Pace Final - It was a Calvary charge from the start as four horses all left hard for the early lead, going three deep around the first turn. It was not until the opening quarter in a speedy :26 that Eclat De Rire (Stephane Gendron), the 2019 Champion, cleared to the lead from HP I Got To Play (Louis-Philippe Roy). Whitecookie (Marie Claude Auger) came first-over and pressed the field to the half mile in :54.2. In the backstretch, Brutus Bayama (Guy Gagnon) popped three-wide at the three-quarters in 1:24 to press the pace. As they came down the stretch, Roy was able to collar Eclat De Rire and go on to win by one and three-quarter lengths in 1:53.3. Brutus Bayama was third. It was a lifetime mark for the colt by Shadow Play. HP I Got To Play is trained by Francis Richard for co-owners/breeders Claude Hamel of Ayer S Cliff and Guy Desautels of Montreal. The winner paid $18.50 in scoring the upset victory. Track Notes: Driver Pierre-Luc Roy had a big day with a driving triple, two of them in championship races. Stephane Gendron, Sylvain Filion, Louis-Philippe Roy and Guy Gagnon each had driving doubles. Denitza Petrova and Francis Richard each had training double, both in the championship races. Live racing resumes next Friday at the Hippodrome 3R. First race post time is 4:00 pm. For more information, visit www.hippodrome3r.ca. From the Quebec Jockey Club

Trois-Rivieres, QC - The Quebec Jockey Club, the only harness racing horsemen's association in North America that is run by horse people and is a not-for-profit group, is hosting the $508,000 Super Sunday in Quebec at the Hippodrome 3R this Sunday. The 12-race program will feature eight championship finals for two and three-year-old trotters and pacers. It is the richest day of horse racing in all of Quebec. The finals for three-year-old's each race for a purse of $65,000 and the two-year-old finals each go for $55,000. There is one final for two-year-old trotting fillies that will be a non-wagering event held after the first race on the card Sunday. Post time for Super Sunday is 1:00 pm and joining the leading drivers at the track, Pascal Berube, Stephane Gendron, Stephane Brosseau and Pierre-Luc Roy, will be two of the top drivers in all of Canada, Sylvain Filion and Louis-Philippe Roy. Both drivers began their careers at the Hippodrome 3R. Filion will be driving two horses that are trained by his father, Hall of Famer Yves Filion, in the finals. They are Celia Bayama (race 7) and Cadillac Bayama (race 9), both of whom are the betting favorites in their respective finals. Filion has a total of five drives in the finals. Louis-Philippe Roy has returned to drive on Super Sunday at the request of his longtime friend, trainer Francis Richard, who has five horses in the finals. They are Genetic Taurus (race 6), Ibiza Panic (race 7), YS Do It Right (race 9), Streakazana (race 10) and HP I Got To Play (race 11). Roy will drive in six of the finals. "It will be nice to see my friends from the track," Roy said. "And I also planned to spend the night in Quebec City with my parents after the races. My good friend Francis (Richard) asked me if I wanted to come and drive all of his horses in the finals, so I thought it would be a good time plan a little trip in Quebec, as I didn't have the chance to go back since Christmas with everything that happened with the Covid." There are two horses who are seeking sweeps of the series and finals. They are Mag N Lady and Acaena De Chakrika. Mag N Lady, a two-year-old trotting filly by Royalty For Life, headlines the non-wagering final. She has won her last three starts, all in the Future Stars Series for trainer-driver and co-owner Jean Francois Maguire of Ontario. In her last start, Mag N Lady set a track record with an amazing 1:59.2 victory, becoming the first two-year-old ever at H3R to trot under 2:00. Acaena De Chakrika goes from post 5 in the 10th race for driver Stephane Brosseau. The filly by Sunshine Beach was last year's two-year-old filly champion.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - This weekend is Super Sunday (Sept. 27) in Quebec with the Hippodrome 3R hosting eight championship harness racing finals of the Quebec-bred series and three return champions from 2019 will be defending their titles. It is the richest day of racing in Quebec for 2020 with more than $500,000 in purse money on Super Sunday. The three-year-old's compete for purses of $65,000 and the two-year-old's go for $55,000. The first return winner from 2019 is in the 6th race where Babidibou (post 6) defends this trotting title for trainer Maxime Velaye and owners Isidore Russo and Guy Corbeil. The son of Royalty For Life will have his regular pilot Stephane Gendron in the sulky. This year he has won four of eight starts including a lifetime mark of 1:57 in the Breeders Trophy Series. He was a game second against older horses in the Preferred Trot last week and prior to that had won two straight legs of the series. He is listed as the 5/2 second in the race. The race favorite is Kenogami Coco (post 1), who returns to H3R off two straight wins in the Grassroots at Mohawk Park, both in 1:56.2, his lifetime mark. The son of Wheeling N Dealin will be driven by Stephane Brosseau for trainer Dany Fountain and owner-breeder Gaetan Bono, Inc. of Laval. The next return winner is Acaena De Chakrika (post 5) in the 10th race championship for three-year-old pacing fillies. This daughter of Sunshine Beach is seeking to sweep the series after winning all three of her preliminary legs for driver Stephane Brosseau, the fastest a lifetime mark of 1:56.4. She is trained by Dany Fontaine for owner-breeder Diane Lepine of Quebec City. The race favorite and rightly so is Steakazana from post six. This daughter of Western Paradise has exploded on the scene at H3R with three straight wins. She has a record of 1:55.3 and last week at H3R defeated a field of older pacing mares in 1:58.4. She is trained by Francis Richard for the MCR Streakazana Group of Charlottetown, PE and will be driven by Louis-Philippe Roy, who has come back home from Ontario to compete on Super Sunday. Perhaps the toughest of all eight championship finals is the 11th race for the three-year-old pacing colts. Here is the entry from trainer Maxime Velaye and owner-breeder Guy Corbeil of Mirabel of Eclat De Rire (post 2) and Retour Au Jeu (post 4). Eclat De Rire is the defending champion. The son of Leader Bayama sports three wins this year, but none of them came in the series. He barely made the final because he had two seconds and one third place finish in the preliminary rounds. Stephane Gendron will drive Eclat De Rire, who has a mark this season of 1:56.1. His stablemate, Retour Au Jeu, has five wins in ten starts already in 2020 and sizzled in the series two starts back with a lifetime mark of 1:54.2. He has won two rounds and will be driven by Jonathan Lachance. Mickymaksomespeed (post 6) has had a superb season for owner, breeder and trainer Michel Allard of Saint-Esprit. This son of Mickey Hanover sports eight wins in just ten starts. Last week he defeated a strong field of older horses, winning with ease in 1:54.3. He has a lifetime mark of 1:53.3 taken at Rideau Carleton Raceway. The field also features Whitecookie (post 5), who won a leg of the series for trainer-driver and co-owner Marie Claude Auger; return winner CL Big Beach (post 7) and HP I Got To Play (post 1). There is no return winner in the 2nd race trot final for the fillies which is headlined by Kinnder High Class (post 3), who has won two straight at H3R. The fourth race Preferred Trot at H3R Sunday nearly saw a triple dead heat finish for win in the fourth race. Keepall and driver Pascal Berube left from post five to take command with Precieuse CC (Claude Beausoleil) sitting the two-hole trip and Bucketlist Hanover (Samuel Fillion) to the opening quarter mile in :28. Stuck first-over, Bucketlist Hanover kept the pressure on as Capteur De Rive (Stephane Gendron) took advantage of the second-over cover past the half mile marker in :56.3. By the three-quarters in 1:26.3, Keepall was still strong on the lead but as Bucketlist Hanover was not gaining ground, Gendron went three-wide with Capteur De Reve and they raced three-wide around the final turn into the top of the stretch. Precieuse CC found room to come after Keepall as did Capteur De Reve and those three finished in a photo finish. Keepall ended up winning by a nose in 1:58 over Precieuse CC with Capteur De Reve third by a head. It was a lifetime mark for Keepall, a six-year-old gelded son of Angus Hall, trained by Sylvain Tremblay for the Alpha Stable of Metabetchouan and Gino Curadeau of Fermont. The winner paid $10.40. Both Precieuse CC and Capteur De Reve are former Quebec-bred Series Champions. Holiday Party ($15.80), also a former champion, won the 7th race trot in 1:59.4 for driver Pascal Berube. Track Notes: H3R's leading driver, Pascal Berube, had another big day with a driving triple. Live racing resumes Sunday at H3R at 1:00 pm with the $500,000 Quebec Series Championships.

Here is a brief synopsis of the eight championship finals Sunday. 2YO Filly Trot Final - With only four entered, this race will be non-wagering, held after the 1st race. Also, the race is non-wagering because of Mag N Lady (Royalty For Life).

CL Sportsexteme (Sportswriter) has been very sharp with Jonathan Lachance in the sulky. 2YO Colt Pace Final - 9th race - Yves Filion's coupled entry of Cadillac Bayama (Sylvain drives) and Colonel Bayama (Yves drives) looms way over this field. Cadillac Bayama won two legs of the series and has been super competitive in the Grassroots, race timed last week in 1:52. Colonel Bayama just won in series and they will take on contenders YS Do It Right (Louis-Philippe Roy) and The Light Speed (Pascal Berube). 3YO Filly Trot Final - 2nd race - Another Denitza Petrova standout is Kinnder High Class (post 3).

Last year's 2yo winner, Babidibou, who was last year's champion has also been very sharp and Frido PV is also a decent contender. 3YO Filly Pace Final - 10th race - Tough call here as last year's champion, Acaena De Chakrika (Sunshine Beach) takes on Streakazana (Western Paradise). Streakazana is on an impressive three-race winning streak, beating Acaena De Chakrika last week. Two top fillies plus Zar E IP (Up The Credit) will make this a tough race. 3YO Colt Pace Final - 11th race - Saving the best for last. Eclat De Rire (Leader Bayama) is the defending 2019 champion and just made it to the final. Stablemate/entry Retour Au Jeu (He's Watching) is the sharper of the two, having won three of his last four starts, the fastest a lifetime mark of 1:54.2. Mickeymaksomespeed (Mickey Hanover) just popped at H3R in 1:54.2 and has won three of his last four starts.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - Mickeymaksomespeed rebounded from his miscue last week and crushed a field of older harness racing pacers Sunday at the Hippodrome 3R. One of only two three-year-old's in the seventh race, Mickeymaksomespeed and driver Steeven Genois bided their time as City Of The Year (Dany Mainguy), Outlaw Turn N Burn (Francis Picard) and Stock (Pascal Berube) all battled it out for control of the race. Once past the opening quarter mile in :27.3, it was Stock in front with Outlaw Turn N Burn sitting the pocket trip. Then at the half mile marker in :56.4, it was Mickeymaksomespeed and Genois coming first-over and breezing to the lead. Mickeymaksomespeed held nothing back, pulling away from the field at the three-quarters in 1:25.2 and cruising to a 1:54.3 triumph. The other three-year-old in the field, Eclat De Rire (Stephane Gendron), was parked out four-wide on the final turn and was able to close to be second by three and one-half lengths.

Sunday was National Caretaker Appreciation Day at the Hippodrome 3R. A blanket for each winning horse and gift bag for the groom was presented in each race. Every groom in the race paddock received a coupon for a free meal at the Paddock Restaurant and every groom was mentioned by name in the post parades. There were two races for two-year-old's Sunday. The 5th race pace saw SOS Faline ($29.10) and driver Stephane Brosseau sweep three-wide in the backstretch, stayed parked out past the three-quarters and around the final turn yet the daughter of Sportswriter showed true grit, coming on in the stretch to win by a half-length in 2:00.2. Brosseau is the trainer. The colt pace in race one was action-packed from the start as Godro Outofhisway (9.40) with driver Pierre-Luc Roy left out of the gate and never looked back. The Light Speed (Simon Delisle) tried early to get the lead away but had to settle for the pocket-trip. Godro Outofhisway then held the field at bay, winning by one and one-quarter lengths in 2:02.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - While this year's national Caretakers Appreciation Day is virtual, the Hippodrome 3R will be honoring all caretakers throughout the race card on Sunday that starts at 1:00 pm. The initiative by Standardbred Canada is more than worthy in celebrating the work that is done every day by the caretakers of the horses. Caretakers are the foundation of the harness racing industry and these men and women are deserving of the tribute being paid to them. Standardbred Canada has been focusing on caretakers through the country the past weeks leading towards this weekend's celebration. For the province of Quebec, caretakers Mathieu Nadeau (https://standardbredcanada.ca/news/9-11-20/faces-racing-mathieu-nadeau.html) and Clara Mary Corbin (https://standardbredcanada.ca/news/8-27-20/faces-racing-clara-mary-corbin.html) , were highlighted. Every caretaker in the race paddock Sunday will receive a coupon for a meal in the paddock restaurant. Each caretaker will be named for each horse that races on Sunday. Caretakers are the closest people to the horses, every day from early morning to late at night, especially on race days, they are devoted to their steeds and deserve all the recognition they can get. On the racetrack Sunday, the seventh race is the feature event where two top three-year-old pacing colts, Eclat De Rire (post 6) and Mickeymaksomespeed (post 9), will take on older horses as they are prepping for their $65,000 Quebec Championship Final next Sunday, Sept. 27. Eclat De Rire is the 2019 two-year-old Quebec champion and the son of Leader Bayama won a division of the Breeders Trophy Series in a lifetime best 1:56.1. He is trained by Maxime Velaye for owner-breeder Guy Corbeil of Mirabel. Mickymaksomespeed never raced at age two for owner, breeder and trainer Michel Allard of Saint-Esprit. The Mickey Hanover colt has made up for lost time this year with seven wins in nine starts. He won two legs of the Breeders Trophy Series, the fastest in 1:55 and prior to that took a lifetime mark of 1:53.3 at Rideau Carleton Raceway. The two colts will take on some tough competition going against Bali (post 3), Stock (post 8) and return winner Blackjack Soleil (post 2). Post time Sunday is 1:00 pm.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - Quebec's top two and three-year-old trotters and pacers will be on display at the Hippodrome 3R Friday as the youngsters are preparing for Super Sunday next week. Friday is the third and final leg of the Future Stars Series for two-year-old trotters. The top eight point earners in the series return for their respective $55,000 finals next Sunday, September 27. Super Sunday in Quebec will be the richest day of racing in the province with nearly $500,000 in purses. The first race of the day is the $10,000 colt division of the Future Stars Series. Featured is Kinnder Dangerzone from post seven for driver Pierre-Luc Roy. The son of Northern Escort has been razor sharp for owner, breeder and trainer Denitza Petrova of Melbourne, winning his last two starts in the series and will seek to make a clean sweep of the preliminary rounds. Other contenders in the race include Hall Win (post 1), Aoki (post 8) and Incredible Hall (post 5). The $10,000 filly division is a non-wagering race held after the first race. Mag N Lady (post 1) is the standout in the four-horse field. The daughter of Royalty For Life has won both her starts in the series, scoring last week by distancing the field in 2:02, just missing the track record for her age, gait and gender. She is trained and driven by Jean Francois Maquire, who co-owns the filly with Julie Maquire, Richard Legris and Pascale Maquire. Then the action turns to some of the top contending three-year-old's in next Sunday's finals as they take on older horses in prepping for the finals. The third race Preferred Trot spots Babidibou, the 2019 Quebec Champion two-year-old, trying his luck against the best trotters in the area. He starts from post four for driver Stephane Gendron and is on a two-race win streak, the fastest a 1:57 lifetime best mile for trainer Maxime Velaye and co-owners Isidoro Russo and Guy Corbeil. Then in the sixth race pace, the three best fillies for Sunday's finals, go head and head. Lotus Sena (post 1) won an opening round of the series for driver Stephane Gendron. In post six is Acaena De Chakrika who has two straight wins in the series, the fastest in 1:56.4 and in post seven is her rival Streakazana, who is also on a two-race win streak. The seventh race trot is somewhat of an oddity as a three-year-old filly is the favorite over eight older horses. That filly is Kinnder High Class, the older half sister to Kinnder Dangerzone who is in the first race. Starting from the rail, Kinnder High Class won her last start with an impressive first-over mile in the series, winning in a romp by seven and one-half lengths in a lifetime best 1:59.4. She sports five wins in eight starts this year for Denitza Petrova. Post time Friday is 4:00 pm. For a free race program, visit www.hippodrome3r.ca. From the Quebec Jockey Club

Trois-Rivieres, QC - It took the photo finish camera to declare Babidibou the winner over Frido PV by a nose in the third leg of the Breeders Trophy Series for three-year-old trotters at the Hippodrome 3R Friday. The top eight point earners in the series will now return on Sunday, September 27 for the $65,000 finals and that means another rematch between Babidibou and Frido PV.

The started off with a fast pace as 50-1 Muscle Fern Jacky (Francis Picard) flew out of post eight to take the early lead and parked out a stubborn 99-1 Judys Program (Martin Gingras) to the first quarter mile in :28.3. As they came to the half mile in :59.4, Kinnder High Class with Pierre Luc Roy started up first-over with Miss Melodie (Stephane Gendron) grabbing the second-over cover. Down the backstretch driver Richard Simard took Lindas Pride three-wide and then at the three-quarters in 1:30.1, Roy asked Kinnder High Class for more and she responded with a burst of speed, winning in a romp in 1:59.4.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - Babidibou, the Quebec trotting champion last year, looks to have turned the tide in his 2020 harness racing season and headlines the final preliminary round of the Breeders Trophy Series Friday at the Hippodrome 3R. Due to conflicts with other events at the racetrack, post time this Friday is moved back to 1:00 pm. This is the last shot that the three-year-old trotters have to earn points to be one of the eight finalists in the $65,000 series finale at H3R on Sunday, September 27, which is Super Sunday in Quebec. Babidibou is a three-year-old gelded son of Royalty For Life who is trained by Maxime Velaye for co-owners Isidore Russo of Montreal and Guy Gorbeil of Mirabel. Last year he earned over $51,000. "He has gotten much stronger since the beginning of the year," said Maxime Velaye. "Only in the first round of series did he make a break. We made a few little changes to try and keep him a bit "safer". Then last week he got to chase a hot pace and just get up in a fast mile." A fast mile it was last week as Babidibou benefited from getting live cover and came from off the pace to win the second leg in a lifetime best 1:57.2 clocking. Also, in the race Friday is trainer-driver Yves St Jacques's Frido PV who goes from the rail. He is the one that cut all the fractions in the second leg only to get beaten at the wire by a neck to Babidibou. He also has three wins this season for owner-breeder Marcel Brouillard of St-Marcel-De-Richelieu. "I'm currently in Toronto," Velaye explained. "With the other half of my stable. But my team in Quebec said that Babidibou is feeling good and ready to go. I have an excellent team in Quebec which is part of the stables success each year. They are Elsa Richer, Stephane Bardier and the big boss Guy Corbeil." The Velaye Stable Team has a busy day at H3R Friday as Miss Melodie goes in the fifth race from post two in the $10,000 Breeders Trophy Series for the trotting fillies. Miss Melodie won the opening round division in a mild 2:03.4 for driver Stephane Gendron. "The best quality this filly has is that she does not make breaks," Velaye said. "But she needs to improve her speed to be able to compete with the top fillies because they go around 2:00." Sired by Prestidigitator, Miss Melodie sports two wins this year for Velaye. She was bred and is owned by Determination of Montreal. Kinnder High Class (post 4) is the morning line favorite and in the second leg of the series she wired the field for driver Pierre Luc Roy in 2:00.3. HP Starlette (post 3) is also a good filly who shows strong closing ability and a record of 1:56.4 at Rideau Carleton Raceway. "It will be a big surprise if she beats them Friday," Velaye added. "If everyone else has trouble staying on stride, maybe we can sneak in another win like the other one. She will capitalize on the others misbehavior." Horse people and fans are reminded of the change in post time this Friday to 1:00 pm instead of 4:00 pm. For a free race program, visit www.hippodrome3r.ca. From the Quebec Jockey Club

Trois-Rivieres, QC - The Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Quebec Jockey Club, Claude Levesque, was very happy today to announce that starting next weekend, for the September 11th harness racing program, the purses at the Hippodrome 3R will be increased between 20% and 30%, for all overnight races. "The members of the Quebec Jockey Club in meeting this morning, made this decision," said Levesque, following the good results obtained since the return to racing. The only downside to this announcement," Levesque added. "Is that if Public Health decided to close the bars in Quebec, and therefore our OTB betting houses, we would return to the current purse structure. This increases does not apply to the Coupe de l'Avenir (Future Stars Series) and the Breeders Trophy events, including the finals. "This is great news," Levesque said, "Which we know will delight our horse people." Despite COVID-19, harness racing trainer Denitza Petrova from Melbourne is enjoying one of her best seasons ever as her Kinnder Dangerzone won Friday at the Hippodrome 3R. Petrova and her parents left Bulgaria in 1989 and moved to Belgium for three years, where Denitza was able to take a few riding lessons. Her love for horses and farm life never left her dreams. Then the family moved to Quebec, Canada in 1992 and it was not until age 22 that Petrova learned about harness racing and became "hooked" on the sport. The big victory of the day came in the very first race Friday, the $10,000 second leg of the Future Stars Series for two-year-old trotting colts. Starting from post four was Kinnder Dangerzone. It was Hall Win and trainer-driver Kevin Maguire going to the early lead with Kinnder Dangerous and driver Pierre Luc Roy sitting in second place until the opening quarter mile in :30.2. Roy then sent Kinnder Dangerzone to the front and the son of Northern Escort led the rest of the one-mile race, winning with ease by two and one-half lengths in 2:03. Hall Win was second with Incredible Hall (Stephane Brosseau) third. Unbeaten in two starts this year, it was a lifetime mark for Kinnder Dangerzone. He paid $3.50 to win. Petrova is not just the trainer of her horses, she also owns them and has bred all of her horses she trains. She runs the entire operation from her farm in Melbourne, which features an excellent half mile training track. For the limited race season in 2020, Petrova's Stable has sent out 24 starts and sports seven wins, four second and one third place finish for a UTR or battle average of .425. Petrova also names all her horses Kinnder because of her love of the Kinder chocolate candy with the toy inside. She has a massive collection of the toy surprises she has gotten over the years. The second division of the Future Stars Series for the fillies saw the top filly, Mag N Lady, win again for trainer-driver Jean Francois Maguire. The daughter of Royalty For Life took the early lead away from X O X O (Jerome Lombart) by the first quarter in :30.4. Then the other three contenders in the field all were off-stride and Mags N Lady went on to win in 2:02 and she distanced the field by as much as 50 lengths. X O X O was second with Justice Balance (Pierre Luc Roy) third. It was the second straight win in the same time for Mag N Lady, who is co-owned by Maguire with Julie Malenfant and Richard Legris. Track Notes: Pierre Luc Roy led all horse people Friday with a driving triple. Sunday features a ten-race program with three divisions of the Breeders Trophy Series for three-year-old pacers.
