Given a perfect drive by Stephane Brosseau, Severus Hanover was victorious over Capteur De Reve in the Preferred-Handicap Trot at Hippodrome 3R on Friday (Oct. 9).

The closely-matched race featured three co-favorites, all at odds of 2-1 and Severus Hanover was one of them.

Capteur De Reve and driver Stephane Gendron shot to the early lead and were challenged immediately by Keepall and driver Pascal Berube. They went the opening quarter mile in :27.1 as Keepall cleared to the lead.

That lead for Keepall was short-lived as Gendron quickly came back with Capteur De Reve on top to the half mile in :58.1. Now coming first-over as they headed to the backstretch was another 2-1 co-favourite, Bucketlist Hanover and driver Jocelyn Gendron, with Severus Hanover following that cover. They went to the three-quarters in 1:28.2.

As they turned for the stretch drive, Brosseau tipped Serevus Hanover three-wide and despite Capture De Reve having a good lead heading to the finish, Serevus Hanover kept gaining and gaining and went on to win by a neck in 1:59. Capteur De Reve held for second with Bucketlist Hanover third.

It was the sixth win this season for Serevus Hanover. The nine-year-old gelded son of Explosive Matter is owned and trained by Yannick Martel of L’Assomption. Serevus Hanover paid $6.30 to win.

Three drivers each had two winners on the card. They were Stephane Brosseau, Samuel Fillion and Francis Picard. Also, scoring a training double was Francis Richard, the leading trainer at 3R this season going for his fourth straight training title.
