Trois-Rivieres, QC - On Sunday the 11-year-old Quebec-bred harness racing stallion, Caroluzzo, takes on younger rivals in the Preferred Trot at the Hippodrome 3R, seeking his 40th career victory. A true warhorse, Caroluzzo has raced every year of his career for owner-breeder Michael Cote Gagnon and trainer Daniel Martin. In fact, Gagnon has been with Caroluzzo since the day the special son of Musclesextrodinair was foaled and knew from day one that his colt was something special. "Caroluzzo is the last foal of a mare that I bought in Ontario, named Sardula," explained Gagnon. "But above all, he is the only Quebec offspring of the Musclextrodinair (Muscle Yankee) stallion that I had discovered and purchased in Delaware. We then named the foal after my grandfather (Carol), who had passed away right before the foal was born. I knew I had to keep and race this foal." And now, Caroluzzo has given Gagnon nine straight years of racing excitement and 39 wins along the way. He has won multiple times every season. The latest triumph was just last week at H3R when Caroluzzo and driver Stephane Gendron wired the field in 2:00.3. "We expected a good performance from him in that group last week." Gagnon said. "He will soon be 12 years old; he is not as formidable as when he was six or seven when he won the title of Trotter of the Year in 2015 and 2016 in Quebec." Gagnon says it is the stable of Daniel Martin that keeps Caroluzzo in racing form and they pretty much let the stallion dictate his work schedule. "Daniel, Dominique and Carolann take care of him like a Prince," Gagnon laughed. "Monsieur Caroluzzo has the nicest stall and doesn't jog until he's awake. Sometimes they send me videos of him snoring! He has a gargantuan appetite and horsemen used to kid about his "thinness". My mother wants him to have a specific diet. "Besides his feet," Gagnon said, "Which sometimes gives work to the team, he does not require special care. He's a solid, good old warrior." On Sunday Caroluzzo is moving up in class to the Preferred Trot and drew post three in the first race co-feature. He will be facing some formidable foes including the entry from trainer Yannick Martel of Severus Hanover (post 2) and Dr Spengler (post 5). Rounding out the field are Sir Chopin (post 1), Keepall (post 4), Precieuse CC (post 6) and Eau Naturelle (post 7). "This week it will be harder," Gagnon said. "But he was still beating this class two years ago. However, he should always be considered by bettors, he scores well and never breaks. Especially when it's Stephane Gendron who's driving him, it's an incredible duo." Being a handsome chestnut stallion with four white feet and a white blaze, has Michael Cote Gagnon ever considered putting Caroluzzo out to stud? "My mother (Elaine Cote) has dreamed of making him a breeder for a long time," Gagnon explained. "He is a superb stallion, a perfect conformation and a good temperament. We might be surprised at the results since he is descended from Muscle Yankee and his dam is from a branch that gave Pure Ivory ($1,442,000 and the mare of Hambletonian winner, Forbidden Trade). "I am open to proposals," Gagnon added. "If breeders from here in Quebec, like Denitza Petrova, Claude Hamel or Guillaume Cayer-Richard, show interest. I myself am looking to buy a good mare for breeding." Also, on Sunday, H3R features a Preferred-Handicapped Pace in the fifth race that has two entries in it. The race favorite is the entry from trainer Alain Martin of Atomic Million Am (post 8) and Wrangler Cash (post 6). Last week Atomic Million Am (who is a four-time Quebec Champion), won this class, leading from start to finish by three open lengths in 1:55.3. He will again be driven by Sylvain Lacaille. Wrangler Cash won the Preferred two starts back for driver Pascal Berube. Other contenders are Farmers Tan (post 7), Maracasso (post 5) and Dreydl Hanover (post 1). First race post time is 1:00 pm.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - There were two $10,000 divisions of the opening round of the Breeders Trophy Series for three-year-old trotters Friday at the Hippodrome 3R and the race favorites in each division broke stride. The fastest division belonged to the colts who competed in the sixth race. With favorite Babidibou out of the race early, it was Kenogame Coco and driver Stephane Brosseau who went right to the early lead with Laval Titan (Pascal Berube) sitting the pocket-seat to the opening quarter mile in :28.1. Brosseau was able to back down the speed to the half mile in :59.3 and that was when the action began to heat up as Frido PV and trainer/driver Yves St Jacques came first-over against Kenogami Coco. Those two raced neck and neck to the three-quarters in 1:28.4. On the final turn, Berube fanned three-wide with Laval Titan and that made it a three-horse race to the finish, but Kenogami Coco proved to be too tough, pulling away in deep stretch for a two and one-half length triumph in 1:58.3. Laval Tital was second with Frido PV third. It was the first win of the year in six starts for Kenogami Coco. The gelded son of Wheeling N Dealin is trained by Dany Fontaine for breeder-owner Jane Francois and Marie Claude Reid of Anjou. The winner paid $7.20 to win. In the third race, the $10,000 filly division of the Breeders Trophy Series, 23-1 long shot Anotherdeal and driver Sylvain Lacaille went right to the early lead with Miss Melodie (Stephane Gendron) sitting the two-hole pocket seat. The 1/9 race favorite, Kinnder High Class with driver Pierre Luc Roy came charging up first-over, but before the opening quarter mile, Kinnder High Class broke stride and was out of the race. Anotherdeal had things her own way on the front end until the top of the stretch when Gendron moved Miss Melodie to the outside and went on to win in 2:03.4. Finishing second with a remarkable comeback was Kinnder High Class, losing by just one and one-lengths. Anotherdeal was third. It was a lifetime mark for Miss Melodie. The daughter of Prestidigitalor is trained by Maxime Velaye for breeder-owner Determination Stable of Montreal. She paid $7.10 to win. Unbeaten Enavant ($3.40) became the winningest horse at H3R this season, scoring his fifth straight win in the seventh race pace for driver Stephane Gendron and H3R's leading trainer Maxime Velaye. Enavant covered the one-mile race in a lifetime best 1:56.4. Track Notes: With a driving double Friday, Stephane Gendron moved within one win of leading driver Pascal Berube, 22-21.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - It took the harness racing photo finish camera in order to declare the winner of the third race Preferred-Handicap Trot at the Hippodrome 3R Friday. Sir Chopin, a 22-1 longshot for owner, trainer and driver Kevin Maguire, was the first out of the gate and led nearly every step of the one-mile trot. The spoiler for the upset win was one of the mares in the race, Missionoftheheart, who sat in along the rail the entire race for driver Stephane Gendron. As horses moved to the outside in the backstretch, Gendron kept Missionoftheheart on the inside, caught up to Sir Chopin after the three-quarters and then collared the pacesetter at the wire to win by a nose in 2:00.3. Precieuse CC (Claude Beausoleil) was third. It was the second win of the season for Missionoftheheart. The six-year-old mare by Manofmanymissions is owned and trained by Michel Allard of Saint-Espirt and paid $6.10 to win. In the second race Preferred-Handicap Pace for the mares, driver Samuel Fillion gave D Gs Fairystars a textbook drive in scoring a mile upset. The nine-horse field was well matched as Twice An Angel (Stephane Gendron) was parked out going for the early lead by 70-1 longshot Bemmol Kalie and driver Daniel Laflamme to the opening quarter mile in :28.1. Once settled on the lead, Twice An Angel was able to back down the pace to the half mile in :59.2, but that drew a first-over challenge from Hammering Haley (Stephane Brosseau) who forced Twice An Angel to pick up the pace. At this point in the mile, D Gs Fairystar was in eighth place, fourth over on the outside. As they raced down the backstretch, Brosseau dropped Hammering Haley into the pocket seat with Y C Easy (Steeven Genois) left first-over and grinding it out against Twice An Angel. Meanwhile Fillion got D Gs Fairytale into high gear, moving three-wide into second over position at the three-quarters in 1:28.2. Coming around the final turn, D Gs Fairystar continued to gain ground, fanning three-wide at the top of the stretch. Then with a final late kick, Fillion urged D Gs Fairystar to collar Twice An Angel before the wire to win by a long neck in 1:58. Y C Easy was third. It was the third win this year for D Gs Fairystar. The four-year-old mare by Mach Three is trained by Guylaine Fortin, who co-owns and bred the horse with Daniel Surprenant of Saint-Valentin. She paid $10.00 to win. The fastest mile of the afternoon came in the seventh race Preferred-Handicap Pace for the older horses. The race belonged to Speed To Market and driver Pascal Berube from the very start. With Maracasso (Carol Voyer) dogging the race leader, Speed To Market paid no never mind to Maracasso as he cut fractions of :27.2, :57.1 and 1:26.2 before pulling away in the stretch for a three and one-half length triumph in 1:56.1. Brunos From Mars (Pierre Luc Roy) was second with Outlaw Turn N Burn (Francis Picard) third. It was the second straight win and fifth of the season for Speed To Market. The five-year-old gelded son of Betterthancheddar is trained by Yves Tessier for owner Francois Morin of Beauceville. He paid $6.60 to win. Track Notes: Stephane Gendron led all drivers with a triple on the day. Maxime Velaye led all trainers with two wins and is now the leading trainer at H3R with eight wins. Unbeaten Enavant ($2.80) became the winningest horse at H3R this season, winning the 4th race pace Friday, his fourth victory of the year. On Saturday the H3R hosts the Quebec Regional Fair Circuit races. Featured will be both young horses and young men and women competing towards their professional harness racing licenses. Post time is 1:00 pm. Then on Sunday is the start of the Quebec-Bred stakes series. There will be four divisions of the opening round of the Breeders Trophy Series for three-year-old pacers. There are two divisions for both the colts and the fillies. Post time is 1:00 pm Sunday. For a free race program, visit From the Quebec Jockey Club  

Trois-Rivieres, QC - The Quebec Jockey Club plays host to a three-day weekend of harness racing action at the Hippodrome 3R. Friday, Saturday and Sunday the half mile oval will see 24 races for the trotters and pacers. Friday's program starts late afternoon with a 4:00 pm post. Then on Saturday it's the Quebec Regional Fair Circuit day at H3R and another full card of action Sunday. Both Saturday and Sunday's programs get underway at 1:00 pm. While it is still early in the racing season at H3R, the three standouts among the driving colony are in a dogfight for control of the lead as well as the training ranks too. Three-time defending driving champion, Stephane Gendron, is currently tied with Pascal Berube as the winningest drivers, each with 12 victories. Following in a close third place is Stephane Brosseau with 11 wins. All three drivers have been top contenders at the track for many years. And the trainers have a tight competition too. Maxime Velaye leads the pack with five wins and tied for second with four wins each are three-time defending trainer champion Francis Richard, Michel Allard, Charles Gaudreault and Pierre Leclerc. Also, to be recognized, is driver Carol Voyer, who this year has had a limited number of drives (16), and has been outstanding with a Universal Driving Rating (baseball average) of .500, which would be tops in any league. All of these drivers and most of the trainers will be back in action on Friday and will be put to the test in the seventh race Preferred-Handicap Pace feature race. Windsun Cheyenne has been made the 5/2 mild favorite from post seven for driver Pascal Berube. Last week the 10-year-old gelded son of Cam's Card Shark was able to show his heels to his younger competitors, leading from start to finish in 1:55.3. In that race Windsun Cheyenne started from the rail and having the outside post seven could well hinder his chances for a repeat victory having to face some tough company Friday. Hooter Shooter gets handicapped and starts from post eight for driver Stephane Brosseau. Two starts back he won the Preferred in 1:56.1, but that was from the rail. Hooter Shooter, unlike Windsun Cheyenne, has raced well in the past from outside posts. D J Power is a force to be reckoned with and has the rail for pilot Samuel Fillion. Fillion has two wins, the fastest in 1:56.2, and a game second last week with D J Power, who has found new life this season racing on the front end. Outlaw Turn & Burn (post 9), Maracasso (post 6) and Always A Diamond (post 5) figure to also provide some strong competition in the race.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - With a late scratch and the field shortened to just five starters, Windsun Cheyenne picked a perfect opportunity to upset 1/5 favorite Hooter Shooter in the Preferred Pace at the Hippodrome 3R Friday afternoon. Starting from the rail, driver Pascal Berube sent Windsun Cheyenne right to the lead and never looked back. With Outlaw Turn & Burn (Francis Picard) sitting right on their backs, Windsun Cheyenne cut fractions of :27.3, :57.4 and 1:26.3. Hooter Shooter (Stephane Brosseau) tried coming first-over to no avail, failing to gain any ground on the leaders. On the final turn, Picard urged Outlaw Turn & Burn to come after Windsun Cheyenne, but they were unable to collar the race leader, who went on to win by one length in 1:55.3. Always A Diamond (Steeven Genois) was third. The oldest horse in the field at age 10, Windsun Cheyenne is sired by the recently deceased Cam's Card Shark. It was his second win this year and 26th career win. He is trained and co-owned by Gina Bragagnolo of Lavaltrie and paid $10.20 to win. After being parked out three-wide on the first turn from post 8, race favorite Keepall and driver Carol Voyer led the field the rest of the one-mile race in capturing the Preferred Trot. Keepall held the field at bay and came on in the stretch to win by two lengths in 2:00.2. Holiday Party (Pascal Berube) was second with Eau Naturelle (Stephane Gendron) third. It was the third win of the season, second in the Preferred Trot for Keepall. He is a six-year-old gelding by Angus Hall, trained by Sylvain Tremblay for the Alpha Stable of Metabetchouan and Gino Curadeau of Formont. He paid $5.10 to win. The highest win payoff of the 2020 season took place Friday as Godiva Mackiavelyc and driver Steeven Genois upset the field in the fourth race pace at 25-1 odds, paying $52.50 to win.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - Spotting race leader Hammering Haley a six-length lead going into the backstretch the final time, Twice An Angel and driver Stephane Gendron proved to be too tough in capturing the 6th race Mares Preferred at the Hippodrome 3R Sunday. The sixth race feature began with Hammering Haley and driver Francis Picard leaving from post one and shooting out to a three-length lead by the opening quarter mile in :27.4. Sitting second was Sophies Cam (Stephane Brosseau) with Twice An Angel in third place. Going by the half mile pole in :56.4, Hammering Haley was still in command by three lengths as Gendron moved Twice An Angel to the outside and slowly began picking up the pace. Then in the backstretch Twice An Angel nearly collared Hammering Haley as Picard pulled the earplugs and his mare was able to park out Twice An Angel past the three-quarters in 1:26.3 and kept her out around the final turn. Then as they straighten out for the stretch drive, Twice An Angel showed why she was bet down as the even money favorite, pulling away for a three length triumph over Y C Easy (Steeven Genois) with Hammering Haley third. It was the second win this year for Twice An Angel. She is a seven-year-old mare by Dragon Again. Trained and co-owned by Charles Gaudreault with Maxim Gaudreault. She paid $4.00 to win. The two-year-old pacers were on display in the second race where GA Speed Arthur and driver Pascal Berube was able to come first-over in the backstretch to collar stablemate GA Speed Semy (Alain Carrier) and then beat Ibiza Panic (Francis Picard) to the wire in a close head triumph in 2:01.2. GA Speed Semy was third. It was the first career start for GA Speed Semy and thus a lifetime mark. The colt is sired by Sunshine Beach from the Yankee Skyscraper mare, R Ciao Baby. She is trained and owned by Alain Carrier of St-Henri-De-Levis and paid $3.10 to win. Zar E IP, the lone three-year-old pacing filly racing against four-year-old horses and mares in the 4th race, posted her third straight triumph of the year for driver Pascal Berube. The daughter of Up The Credit, a full sister to Hurryupatthebeach p,2,1:58.2f, won by one length in 1:58.2 over Gambler Panic (Francis Picard) and You Rock Girl Kir (Stephane Brosseau). She paid just $2.10 to win. Zar E IP is now tied with SOS Turbo as the winningest horses at H3R this year, each with three victories. Track Notes: Three drivers had two wins each on Sunday. They were Carol Voyer, Pascal Berube and Stephane Gendron. Also scoring trainer doubles were Carol Voyer and Charles Gaudreault. Live racing resumes at H3R next Friday afternoon with first race post time at 4:00 pm. For more information, visit From the Quebec Jockey Club  

Trois-Rivieres, QC - Harness racing driver Steeven Genois, a Quebec native, will be back in action full-time at the Hippodrome 3R starting with opening day on Wednesday. The Quebec Jockey Club is conducting a 40-day race meet that will go until early November of 2020, racing primarily on Fridays (4:00 pm) and Sundays (1:00 pm). The special Wednesday card is also National Quebec Day. The 32-year-old reinsman from Levis, Quebec, Genois had a banner year competing at Saratoga Raceway in upstate New York in 2019. He scored 78 wins in the USA with a personal record of more than $600,000 in purse earnings with the horses he drove. Off to a slow start at Saratoga at the beginning of 2020, Genois made a tough decision to return to Quebec after the start of the pandemic in North America. "I was there (Saratoga) at the start of the season," explained Genois. "but because of the Covid19 I came home to Quebec until the boarder reopens. Now I have changed my mind and intend to stay in Quebec for the summer." Genois will be competing in four of the eight races on opening day at H3R. And yes, race fans, it's Steeve, not Steve. He explained that his mom liked the name but wanted it different for her son. "It is nice to be back home," Genois said. "and to be with my friends. Actually, the two driving colonies, H3R and Saratoga are very similar. Excellent competition at both tracks. If I am asked, I will also go and drive at Rideau Carleton Raceway too. Once the H3R season is over I will most likely go back to Saratoga." Genois first started driving in Quebec back in 2007 and made the choice to drive at Saratoga in 2018. It took him a while to get into the swing of things at that track and by 2019 was a sought-after driver by trainers at the track. Ready to compete on opening day at H3R, Genois noted that it will be different without race fans in the stands. "I am just very happy that racing has returned in Quebec," Genois noted. "It will be different going on the track to drive without any race fans. At H3R the fans are usually right on the fence, watching and cheering, and they usually get a lot of fans to the races. Now it will be very quiet until race fans are allowed to attend again." Trainer Francis Richard, who will be trying for his fourth straight training title at H3R, has five starters going to post on opening day. "I think it will be strange," said Richard about having live racing without any fans watching. "Sort of like the qualifying races we have but for purse money. It will be a little weird I think." The leading driver at H3R, Stephane Gendron, who is also going for his fourth straight driving title, is not competing on opening day and is expected to start defending his driving title on Sunday's race program. There is a Preferred Pace headlining the Wednesday program in the seventh race. Featured is Sports Authority (post 2), who was second last week at Rideau Carleton in the Preferred Pace, missing by a half length for driver Tyler Jones, timed in 1:54. Also in the field are standouts G A Speed Sammy (post 6); Bali (post 3) and Outlaw Turn & Burn (post 7). Post time for the opening day program is 4:00 pm Wednesday. Then H3R races Fridays and Sundays for the rest of the season. For more information, including a free race program for Wednesday, visit From the Quebec Jockey Club  

Trois-Rivieres, QC - The Quebec Jockey Club has received approval from the Quebec Racing Commission to begin spectator-less harness racing at the Hippodrome 3R on Wednesday, June 24, which is National Quebec Day in the province. The regular season will feature Sunday afternoon racing at 1:00 pm every Sunday through November 8. The special Wednesday opening day race program will have a 4:00 pm first race post time. Then the schedule will return to Friday afternoon racing through October 9, also with a 4:00 pm post time. "With qualifying races being held on Wednesday (tomorrow) and Saturday," explained Murielle Thomassin, Director of Racing at H3R, "we should have more than enough horses to fill our first race program. Plus, horse people competing at Rideau Carleton will want to come back to H3R. We want to showcase our races during the week at 4:00 pm so fans can see our product before the start of the Mohawk Park program." Both Stephane Gendron and Francis Richard, the leading driver and trainer respectively at H3R for the past three seasons, will both be in action at the qualifiers Wednesday. "We have all our Covid-19 protocol's in place for tomorrow morning," Thomassin added. "And all our horse people are prepared to handle the necessary procedures for safe distancing while in the race paddock." The Quebec-Bred race series for two, three-year-old and older horses will still take place and those revised dates will be released soon. For more information go to From the Quebec Jockey Club    

Trois-Rivieres, QC - The curtain closed on the 2019 harness racing season at the Hippodrome 3R Sunday. The leading driver of the meet was Stephane Gendron, who led from early on in the season and was never really challenged. Gendron scored one win Sunday to end the season with 63 wins and a batting average, UDR of .355. "I am very proud of being the leading driver," Gendron said. "It's always an honor to win this title, and I work very hard for that." Will Gendron be driving anywhere this winter? "No," Gendron said. "I will not drive anywhere this winter. I'm taking time for myself, and will be coming back next year for the H3R race meet." Second to Stephane Gendron in the driver standings was Pascal Berube with 54 wins. The leading trainer, for the third straight season, is none other than Francis Richard. He held a strong lead halfway through the race season and ended the race meet with 32 wins. His closest competition was trainers Yves Tessier with 24 and Maxime Velaye with 23 wins. After the sixth race trot there was a very moving ceremony for the 14-year-old Chinnys Wings as this was his last pari-mutuel race. All Standardbred racehorses must retire from racing when they turn age 15 on January 1. Although Chinnys Wings finished 8th in his last race, he was brought to the winner's circle where the race bike and harness were removed and a beautiful winter monogramed blanket was placed on the son of Armbro Ricochet. For the record, Chinnys Wings started 235 times with 45 wins and earnings of $382,333. His record was 1:56.2. He was trained and driven by Jean Lord and owned by his wife, Nancy, of Trois-Rivieres. The Lord's have said that Chinnys Wings will have a good home and maybe even race in the Quebec Regional Fair Circuit next year. In the third race Preferred Trot, Preciecuse CC, one of only two mares in the field, took full advantage of starting from the trail for trainer/driver Claude Beausoleil and wired the field. Despite a first-over effort by Seeyou Men (Francis Picard), Preciecuse CC was not to be caught, winning by one length in 2:00.3 over Seeyou Men with the other mare in the field, Missionoftheheart (Jocelyn Gendron) third. It was the second straight win and eighth victory of the season for Preciecuse CC, a four-year-old mare by Angus Hall, owned by Marie Andree Courney of Chicoutimi. She paid $10.10 to win. The fastest mile on closing day was in the ninth race Preferred Pace where Maracasso and trainer/driver Carol Voyer would not let anyone pass them by. They wired the field in 1:56, barely holding off a late charging Appleby Hanover (Jocelyn Gendron) to win by a diminishing neck. Hooter Shooter (Pascal Berube) was third. It was the eleventh win on the year for Maracasso. The seven-year-old gelded son of Lis Mara is owned by The Alpha Stable of Metobetchouan and paid just $3.10 to win. The biggest highlight of the 2019 season was in the $200,000 Prix d'Ete Pace when driver Daniel Dube led from start to finish with This Is The Plan, who stopped the teletimer in 1:49.1. The mile was the fastest ever in Canada on a half mile track and shattered the prior track record of 1:50.3. This Is The Plan is trained and co-owned by Ron Burke and it was Burke's third triumph in the Prix d'Ete. Track Notes: Pierre Luc Roy scored a driving triple on closing day. The Hippodrome 3R and its Off-Track-Betting sites throughout Quebec, will be open seven days a week all winter long for simulcasting. The 2020 live harness racing season at H3R will begin next April.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - Sunday (Nov. 10) is closing day for the 2019 harness racing season at the Hippodrome 3R. Honored during the 11-race program will be the race meets leading driver, Stephane Gendron and leading trainer Francis Richard. Both Gendron and Richard have enough of a lead in their respective categories that no one can catch them on closing day. For Gendron, 50, from Quebec City, it Is his first driving title at H3R. He kept his lead up from early in the season and goes into Sunday's program with 62 wins, nine more than rival Pascal Berube (53). Gendron also has a great Universal Driving Rating (Baseball average) of .355. He is scheduled to compete in seven of the eleven races on the program. Mathematically, Breube has a very minimal chance to tie Gendron for the driving title on closing day. As for trainer Francis Richard, he will be winning his third straight training title at H3R and the resident of Cambridge, Ontario is just 29 years old. Richard holds a nine-win lead (32 wins) over his nearest rivals, Yves Tessier and Maxime Velaye, each at 23 wins. "I might have seemed quiet this season," Richard explained. "but we were just out of luck on the day of the rich finals. We won multiples legs of the different Quebec sires stakes in the summer but when the draw came out for the finals, we drew a horrible bunch of 8 posts, and still got 6/7 cheques, it's racing. "You need luck and it just wasn't there for us that day," Richard added. "We did win the Quebec Final with Lucky Promesses for the older trotting mares." Richard also added about the people he works with. "I'm really proud of our team winning the training title," Richard said. "Three times in a row is something special, and we work hard and it's paying off in the end! I can't thank my crew enough; they are dedicated to their work and we are all having fun doing it!" This season there were two horses that Richard had from his stable that kept a smile on his face all season long. "My two best horses this season has to be Major Bay," Richard said. "He had not been worse than 2nd in all of his starts before drawing post 8 in the final and unfortunately hit a wheel, but he went on to Toronto to continue his season where he did very good. "My friend Ben Baillargeon and his team took the training duties for my partners and I," Richard explained. "And he made over $80,000 his season. I am very proud of him. "My second favorite horse would be HP Napoleon," Richard said. "If you remember this spring in an interview, I said he could be a nice horse if he puts it all together, which he did. So far, he has bankrolled over $85,000. Francis Richard says he is somewhat set for this winter. "We plan on having around 5 babies this fall to break," Richard said. "And we got some homebreds and got a few from sales. We will be very busy all winter." The third race co-feature Preferred Trot features the return battle between Seeyou Men (post 5) and Capteur De Reve (post 4). Seeyou Men won the battle last week. He will again be driven by Francis Picard. Capteur De Reve will be handled by Stephane Gendron. These two top contenders have been facing each other all season long in some great trotting matchups. Also entered are Missionoftheheart (post 3), Sir Chopin (post 2) and Precieuse CC (post 1). Then after the sixth race trot, win, lose or draw, the 14-year-old Chinnys Wings will receive a retirement blanket in the winner's circle. He will bow out for owner Nancy Lord and her husband, trainer/driver Jean Lord of Trois-Rivieres. All horses must retire from pari-mutuel racing at age 15. But don't count Chinnys Wings out as he will still be able to compete next season in the Quebec Regional Fair Circuit. The final feature race of the season takes place in the ninth with the Preferred Pace. The field features the mainstay of the top pacers who raced at H3R all season long. Surf Report (post 1), Mister Big Top (post 2), Appleby Hanover (post 3), Maracasso (post 4) and Hooter Shooter (post 5). Maracaso leads the way for trainer/driver Carol Voyer with ten wins this year.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - A sloppy, rain-soaked track did not discourage Capteur De Reve from leading start to finish in the Preferred Trot at the Hippodrome 3R Sunday. Despite a four second allowance due to poor track conditions, Capteur De Reve and driver Stephane Gendron left from post one in the third race feature and was able to parked out Volare (Tyler Jones) to the opening quarter. Tried as he did to get to the lead, Volare broke stride and had to be taken back to last place. As the field came to the half mile marker, Capteur De Reve was comfortably on the lead with Missionoftheheart (Jocelyn Gendron) sitting on their back in second place. It was then that driver Francis Picard moved Seeyou Men first-over and began to gain ground on Capteur De Reve as they approached the three-quarters. Tried as he did, Seeyou Men could not collar Capteur De Reve as those two fought down the stretch with Capteur De Reve winning by three-quarters of a length in 2:03.1. Missionoftheheart was third. It was the sixth win this season for Capteur De Reve. The five-year-old gelding by Muscle Mass is the only trotter ever to win four Quebec-Bred Championships. He is trained by Maxime Velaye for the Provoquante Stable of Mirabel, who also bred the horse. He paid $2.70 to win. Talbotcreek Suzie ($5.10) was able to win the ninth race Preferred 3 Trot for driver Pascal Berube, who ended the day with two wins as did driver Tyler Jones.

Trois-Rivieries, QC - Having had to take nearly two years off from the races due to injuries, has not slowed Histoire Enchantee at all as the five-year-old harness racing pacer headlines the Preferred Pace at the Hippodrome 3R on Sunday. The gelded son of Shanghai Phil at age three was a terror on the racetrack, having won nearly $100,000 in purses with a record of 1:50.1. Histoire Enchantee is still owned by his breeder, Guy Gorbeil of Mirabel and he is trained by Maxime Velaye. "Histoire Enchantee was injured with the results of a severe suspensory," explained Velaye. "To make matters worse, it was not even a race injury. He had to be stopped training and immobilized in his stall for about ten months. This is the kind of injury that heals slowly over time. "After his successful season in 2017 at age 3, we stopped with him as usual," continued Velaye. "then we started again in the winter of 2017-2018 to be ready for the Quebec-Bred Series at age four. It was during this period that he was injured. Since his remarkable comeback this year, Histoire Enchantee sports three wins in six starts with two second place finishes. His currently record mile this season is 1:56.4, but he seems to get a little faster with every start. On Sunday, Histoire Enchantee starts from the far outside in post eight for driver Stephane Gendron, who has driven him in all of his starts this year. He is listed as the morning line favorite and rightly so, having won three of his last four starts and was second last week, timed in 1:55.1. Histoire Enchantee shows early gate speed that should help him overcome his outside post position against a stellar field of competition. Rivals in the eighth race feature include Appleby Hanover (post one), who has won three of his last four starts; Kinnder Jackson (post two), Surf Report (post three) and Hooter Shooter (post 7). Post time Sunday at H3R is 1:00 pm. For additional information, a free race program, or to views the races live via the internet, visit From the Quebec Jockey Club  

Trois-Rivieres, QC - The Quebec Jockey Club played host Sunday afternoon at the Hippodrome 3R to the $480,000 Championship harness racing finals for the Breeders Cup Series and Future Stars Series. It was the richest day of horse racing in all of Quebec with purses totaling over $500,000 for the afternoon. Each series featured four divisions for trotter and pacers. Here is a breakdown of each of the Championship Finals. $65,000 Three-Year-Old Colt Trot Final It was a two-horse race from the start with track record hold Cesar Duharas and driver Pascal Berube shooting to the early lead with race favorite Only For Justice (Stephane Brosseau) grabbing the early two-hole spot by the opening quarter mile in :28.3. Brosseau moved Only For Justice to the outside by the half mile in :59, but Berube and Cesar Duharas stuffed them back into the pocket. Then by the three-quarters in 1:27.2, Brosseau came back again and this time on the final turn had collared Cesar Duharas, who then went off-stride, allowing Only For Justice to win with ease in a romp by 12 3/4 lengths in 1:57.3. Money Hill (Sylvain Filion) was second with Triomphe Duharas (Denis Gueriel) third. Only For Justice is now a repeat Quebec Champion, having won the final at age 2 and now at age 3. Sired by Justice Hall, it was Only For Justice's fourth win this year for trainer Dany Fontaine and the Gaetan Bono Stable of Montreal who bred and owns the gelding. He paid $3.10 to win. $65,000 Three-year-old Filly Trot Final Kinderunbelievable and driver Pierre Luc Roy put in an unbelievable performance to beat pacesetter Choo Choo Bleu (Sylvain Filion). Choo Choo Blue left first from the starting gate with My Lady Hall (Louis Philippe Roy) grabbing the two-hole spot past the opening quarter mile. Then coming to the half mile was when Pierre Luc Roy took Kinderubelievable first-over, giving race favorite Cor Leo (Stephane Gendron) second-over live cover. Choo Choo Blue would not let Kinderunbelievable pass them by down the backstretch and around the final turn. Then in the stretch, with horses fanning out all around them, Kinderunbelievable dug in with true grit and went on to win by three-quarters of a length in 2:01.3. Choo Choo Blue was second with Cor Leo third. It was the third win this year for Kinderunbelievable, who is sired by Archangel. It was her third straight win for breeder, owner, trainer Dentiza Petrova of Melbourne. She paid $5.40 to win. $65,000 Three-year-old Colt Pace Final Race favorite Ashleysbest saw his three-race winning streak come to an end as D Gs De Vito and Jonathan Lachance used a big brush in the backstretch to pass by the favorite en route to scoring a one and one-half length victory. Ashleysbest (Pascal Berube) shot to the lead from post seven and cut the mile with fractions of :26.2 and :55.1 before Lachance and D Gs De Vito came flying first-over in the backstretch to take command by the three-quarters in 1:23.3. HP Napoleon (Stephane Brosseau) tried to follow the move of D Gs De Vito to no avail as the winner went on to score in 1:54.1. HP Napoleon was second with Angers Bayama (Sylvain Filion) third.

His clocking was the fastest mile on the 14-race card. $65,000 Three-year-old Filly Pace Final Hall of Famer Yves Filion sent Akita Bayama right to the lead and barely held off a very determinded Cooking The Speed (Louis Philippe Roy) to win by a neck in a lifetime best 1:57.1.

Audi Bayama (Sylvain Filion), part of the entry for trainer Yves Filion, was third. It was the second win in just five starts this year for Akita Bayama. The Sportswriter daughter was bred and is owned by Filion's Bayama Farms of Saint-Andre-D'Argenteuil. She is co-owned with Jacques Damours of Laval and paid $2.90 to win. $55,000 Two-year-old Colt Pace Final Whitecookie (Marie Claude Auger) saw his undefeated six-race winning streak come to an end at the hands of Eclat De Rire and driver Stephane Gendron. Going right to the lead as usual was Whitecookie with Eclat De Rire sitting right on their backs for nearly the entire mile. It was not until the three-quarters that Gendron pulled the pocket with Eclat De Rire as the rest of the field was fanning three and four-wide for the drive to the finish. In the stretch, Eclat De Rire was able to collar Whitecookie and pass them by to win by one length in a lifetime mark of 1:58.4. Whitecookie was second with PLD Needy (Pascal Beurbe) third.

Despite a strong come-back from Kinnder High Class (Pierre Luc Roy), Emotions Durables held the field at bay, winning by one and one-half lengths in a lifetime best 2:03.1. Muscle Fern Jacky (Francis Picard) was third. It was the fourth win in just six starts for the daughter of Wheeling N Dealin, who is owned and trained by Cassandra Lecourt of Ste-Victoire De Sorel.

The 8th race saw Lit De Rose (Stephane Gendron) go to the lead in the older pacing mares final with stablemate Lune Bleu (Pierre Luc Roy) taking the second spot.

Leading from the start for driver Guy Gagnon, Atomic Million AM cut fractions of :26.2, :56 and 1:25.4 before Kinnder Jackson, driven by LPR, came after them on the final turn and looked to make a race of it down the stretch, but Atomic Million AM was too strong, winning by one length in 1:55.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - Seeyou Men had a perfect trip in the Quebec-Bred Series for older harness racing trotters at the Hippodrome 3R Friday, but Capteur De Reve had other ideas in scoring an upset victory. Driver Stephane Gendron had a big night with four winners. This was the third and final preliminary round in the Series before next weeks $30,000 finals on Sunday, July 14. Seeyou Men and driver Stephane Brosseau were the overwhelming 1/9 race favorite in the eighth race co-feature and there was no place or show wagering on the race. It was Capteur De Reve and driver Stephane Gendron who left like a rocket out of the starting gate and Seeyou Men had to be content to enjoy the two-hole trip in second place. Capteur De Reve went to the opening quarter mile in a speedy :27.4. He then blacked down the pace as they went past the half mile marker in :59.2. Then Kinnder Dangerous (Pierre Luc Roy) came first-over with Maximuscle (Tyler Jones) grabbing the second-over spot after going off-stride at the start of the race. Down the backstretch Capteur De Reve continued to be the strong horse, passing the three-quarter pole in 1:29.2 as Kinnder Dangerous could not gain ground on the outside, but also boxed in SeeYou Men along the rail. As they came down the stretch, Seeyou Men finally had room to trot along the rail but it was too late as Capteur De Reve had plenty of trot and went on to win by one and one-quarter lengths in 1:59.3. Seeyou Men was second. It was the first win of the season in four starts for Capteur De Reve. The five-year-old gelding by Muscle Mass is a three-time Quebec Series champion and is trained by Maxime Velaye for the Provoquante Stable of Mirabel, who bred and owns him. He paid $12.00 to win. In the older trotting mares division, race six, it was Lucky Promesses and driver Francis Picard who stole the show from the rail. Quickly leaving and taking command of the race with Eau Naturelle (Simon Delisle) sitting in second place, Lucky Promesses held off a first-over Kascara Rosa (Stephane Brosseau) at the half mile and three-quarters. Then coming down the stretch, Lucky Promesses started to bear out and allowed Eau Naturelle to come up the rail and near collar the leader. But Lucky Promesses was her best Friday and held on for the victory by a neck over Eau Naturelle with a late closing Y S Suzanne (Guy Gagnon) third in the photo. The time of the race was 1:59.3.
