Trois-Rivieres, QC - The most impressive victory on the Tuesday evening card at the Hippodrome 3R took place in the second race pace where the three favorites, Mrs Dragonfire, Big Mac and Kinnder Jackson, all were coming off victories and meeting for the first time.

A real battle took place as Mrs Dragonfire (Guy Gagnon) was on the front end with Encore Panic (Pierre Luc Roy) in the pocket seat to the opening quarter in :27.2.

Then by the half mile mark in :57.2, Stephane Brosseau came first-over with race favorite Big Mach and following their outside over was undefeated Kinnder Jackson with Justin Filion driving.

As they started up the backstretch, Filion moved three-wide with Kinnder Jackson and the three-year-old gelding by Allamerican Native blew by the two leaders and was in the lead by the three-quarters in 1:26.1.

From there Kinnder Jackson pulled away from the field to win by six and one-quarter lengths in 1:56. Mrs Dragonfire was second with Encore Panic third.

It was a lifetime mark for Kinnder Jackson and his fourth straight win, unbeaten this year and all his races at H3R. He was bred and is owned and trained by Denitza Petrova of Melbourne and paid $9.90 to win. He is now tied with Requested as the winningest horses at H3R this season.

Petrova and Filion nearly made it a double on the night as Kinnder Prediction fought head and head with Lindas Jewell (Mario Lachance) for most of the one mile trot and actually won the race. But because Kinnder Prediction went inside some of the plyons, the horse was placed last in the fifth race.

Track Notes: The Quebec-Bred Series for four and five-year-old pacers gets back underway at the Hippodrome 3R this Sunday with the third leg in the series. After Sunday, the top eight point earners return on a special Thursday night card, August 9 for the $30,000 finals.
