Wrangler Cash proved to be the strong horse at Hippodrome 3R on Sunday (Nov. 1), as he grabbed the lead after the opening quarter and then wired his foes in the Preferred Pace.


Wrangler Cash and driver Pascal Berube.

The featured Preferred Pace (Race 9) was raced over a 'good' track (due to rain) which carried a two-second allowance. Farmers Tan (who was driven by Carol Voyer) went right to the early lead and was then taken over by Wrangler Cash and driver Pascal Berube in :28.1 to the first quarter.

Wrangler Cash then had it easy on the front end, going to the half mile in :59.2. Dreydl Hanover (Samuel Fillion) was looking for his fourth straight win and came first over but to avail by the three quarters in 1:28.1.

Wrangler Cash went on to win by two lengths in 1:58. The pocket-sitting Farmers Tan finished second and Atomic Million AM (Sylvain Lacaille) was third under the wire. Atomic Million AM was part of an entry with Wrangler Cash. He got away third, was never really in the hunt, and sat on the rail before finishing third.

The victory was the seventh win of the year for Wrangler Cash. The seven-year-old As Promised gelding is trained and owned by Alain Martin of Gatineau.


Capteur De Reve and driver Stephane Gendron.

Capteur De Reve ($2.40) and driver Stephane Gendron took full advantage of an early speed duel between Precieuse CC and Voodoo Man. The victorious pair would come first-over late for an easy triumph in the Preferred Trot.

Precieuse CC (Claude Beausoleil) went right to the lead, Jocelyn Gandron also left with Voodoo Man and got parked out first-over to a :28.2 first quarter and :57.4 half mile.

Then in the backstretch Gendron came first-over before the three-quarters in 1:27.4, continued to gain ground on Precieuse CC and breezed to a one and one-half length triumph in 1:58.3. Precieuse CC was second with Sir Chopin (Carol Voyer) third.

It was the second straight win and sixth victory of the year for Capteur De Reve. The six-year-old gelding by Muscle Mass is trained by Maxime Velaye the Provoquante Stable of Mirable, who also bred the winner.

The second race trot saw track record holder Kinnder High Class ($3.40), the lone filly racing against older horses and mares, get parked first-over from the half mile marker against pacesetter Aworthy Bi (Jocelyn Gendron), and with a well-rated drive by Samuel Fillion, pulled away in the stretch to win by two lengths in 1:59.2. Aworthy Bi was second with Bonfire Bash (Stephane Brosseau) third.

It was the fourth straight win and eighth victory in eleven starts for Kinnder High Class. The three-year-old filly by Royalty For Life is owned, bred and trained by Denitza Petrova of Melbourne.

Track Notes: There were four drivers who all scored doubles on Sunday. They were David Pilon, Samuel Fillion, Francis Picard and Pascal Berube. The lone trainer that sent out two winners was Alain Martin. Live racing resumes at H3R next Sunday, first race post time at 1:00 p.m. For more information, visit www.hippodrome3r.ca.
