Capteur De Reve Defies The Slop

A ‘sloppy,’ rain-soaked track did not discourage Capteur De Reve from leading start to finish in the Preferred Trot at the Hippodrome 3R on Sunday (Oct. 27).

Despite a four-second allowance due to poor track conditions, Capteur De Reve and driver Stephane Gendron left from Post 1 in the afternoon’s featured dash (Race 3) and were able to park out Volare (who was driven by 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 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. The duo fought down the stretch, but it was Capteur De Reve that went on to win by three quarters of a length in 2:03.1. Missionoftheheart finished third.

The victory was the sixth win of the season for Capteur De Reve. The five-year-old Muscle Mass gelding 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. Capteur De Reve paid $2.70 to win.

Talbotcreek Suzie ($5.10) was able to win the Preferred 3 Trot (Race 9) for driver Pascal Berube, who ended the day with two wins, as did driver Tyler Jones.

TRACK NOTES: Live racing will resume at H3R next Sunday (Nov. 3) at 1:00 p.m. The card will be the second to at H3R this season. For more information, race results, free programs and more, visit
