YS Tallia put on a show in front of a packed crowd at the Hippodrome 3R Sunday afternoon (July 14), as she set a track record while capturing her respective $30,000 final of the Quebec-Bred Series.

Race 8 saw Lit De Rose (who was driven by Stephane Gendron) go to the lead in the older pacing mares final with stablemate Lune Bleu (Pierre Luc Roy) taking the second spot. Then Miss Rockadali (Guy Gagnon) came first-over at the first quarter in :26.4 and slipped ahead of Lune Bleu into the two-hole.

After the half mile marker in :54.4, the 1-9 race favourite YS Tallia with driver Louis Philippe Roy (‘LPR’) came first over and battled with Lit De Rose past the three-quarters in 1:23.3. Once cleared to the lead, YS Tallia opened up on the final and LPR urged the mare on as she won in a romp by six open lengths in 1:52.4. Lit De Rose was second with All You Can Dream (Stephane Brosseau) third.

YS Tallia’s time of 1:52.4 eclipsed the prior record of 1:54.1, which was set by My Tallia Ideal in 2015 for older pacing mares. YS Tallia is now the fastest mare ever at H3R and is tied with Duc Dorleans with the fourth fastest mile ever at the track.

A five-year-old mare by Western Ideal, YS Tallis is trained by Michel Allard for owner-breeder Yves Sarrazin of La Presentation and paid $2.30 to win.

One of the classic battles of the day took place in the Quebec-Bred final for three-year-old trotting colts (Race 7).

Race favourite Seeyou Men and driver Stephane Brosseau left from the rail to take the early command with Kinnder Dangerous (Pierre Luc Roy) grabbing the two-hole spot. Then Maximuscle (LPR) came first-over and pressed the first quarter to :28.

Unable to clear to the lead, Maximuscle hung game on the outside with Capteur De Reve and driver Stephane Gendron taking the second-over trip past the half mile in :57.

Down the backstretch, Gendron moved three-wide with Capteur De Reve past the three-quarters in 1:26.4 and came right after pacesetter Seeyou Men.

The duo then went head and head around the final turn and down the stretch until Capteur De Reve showed he was the stronger horse by drawing off to win by one and one-quarter lengths in 1:58. Seeyou Men was second with Kinnder Dangerous third.

Capteur De Reve became the first horse ever to win four Quebec-Bred finals and he did it in four consecutive years at ages two, three, four and five. The gelded son of Muscle Mass is trained by Maxime Velaye and was bred and is owned by the Provoquante Stable of Mirable. He paid $10.80 to win.

Later on the card (Race 10), Atomic Million AM tied Capteur De Reve by scoring his fourth Quebec-Bred final with a game wire-to-wire triumph.

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. Atomic Million AM was too strong, though, as he went on to win by one length in 1:55. C L Art Magic (Daniel LaFlamme) was third.

Atomic Million AM is an eight-year-old gelding by Million Dollar Cam. The victory was his fifth consecutive win, all at H3R, which has made him the winningest horse at the track this season. He is trained, owned and was bred by Alain Martin of Gatineau and paid $3.00 to win.

Driver Louis Philippe Roy wasted little time making his way to the winner’s circle, as he drove Lucky Promesses to victory in the $30,000 Quebec-Bred final for older trotting mares (Race 3).

Roy sent Lucky Promesses right to the front from Post 4, cut fractions of :28.4, :59.4, 1:28.4, all the while holding the field at bay. He then crossed the finish two and one-quarter lengths in front in 1:58.4. Y S Suzanne (Guy Gagnon) was second with Kascara Rose (Stephane Brosseau) third.

Lucky Promesses is a six-year-old mare by Lucky Fool. The Sunday effort resulted in the second straight win and third victory of the year for Lucky Promesses, who is trained by Francis Richard and co-owned by Bruno Morin of St-Lazare-De-Bellechasse along with Danny Genois of Quebec City. She paid $3.40 to win.

There were four divisions of the Breeders Cup Series for three-year-old fillies and colt pacers on Sunday.

The first filly division (Race 2) saw Cooking The Speed ($6.80), who started in the second tier from Post 9, find early clearance before the half-mile marker and shoot to the lead for driver Stephane Gendron. The duo never looked back and won by one and one-half lengths in 1:57.4. Akita Bayma (Yves Filion) was second with Jazz (Pierre Luc Roy) third. The victory was the second consecutive win for the daughter of So Surreal. She is trained by Michel Allard, who co-owns Cooking the Speed with Allard Racing of Saint-Esprit.

The second filly division (Race 11) saw both Moneymakehersmile and HP Xanadu play hard for most of the one-mile race. Moneymakehersmile and driver Pascal Berube went to the lead with Majelyca (Francis Picard) in the two-hole. Then HP Xanadu came first-over for driver Stephane Brosseau and collared Moneymakehersmile, and those two went head and head down the backstretch, around the final turn and down the stretch all the way to the wire. Moneymakehersmile barely held on for a neck triumph in 1:58. Majelyca was third. It was a lifetime mark for Moneymakehersmile, a Mach Three filly trained by Dany Fountain for owner-breeder Sotirios Anastasopoulos of Sainte-Therese. She paid $37.30 to win in what was her second triumph of the season.

The first colt division (Race 4) saw Y S Sunshine and LPR wire the field after having cut fractions of :26.2, :57 and 1:26.2. He then held off D Gs De Vito (Jonathan Lachance) by a half length to win in 1:54.2. Ashleysbest (Pascal Berube) was third. It was the first win in three starts for Y S Sunshine. The gelded son of Sunshine Beach is trained by Michel Allard for breeder-owner Yves Sarrazin of La Presentation. He paid $4.70 to win. Y S Sunshine was the Future Stars final champion last year.

The second colt division saw three lead changes after a :27.1 first quarter and :56.4 half before HP Napoleon and driver Stephane Brosseau clear to the lead for good by the three-quarters in 1:26. The gelded son of Big Jim then drew away from the field and won by five and one-half lengths in 1:55.2. GA Speed Gaby (Guy Gagnon) was second with Sunshine Lou (Pascal Berube) third. Trained by Francis Richard owner Claude Hamel, who bred the colt with Celine Paquin, both of Ayers Cliff. He paid $3.20 to win.

Track Notes: Both LPR and Stephane Gendron each had driving triples. Michel Allard led all trainers on the day with three wins from his stable. Live racing will resume next Friday at the Hippodrome 3R with first race post time at 7:00 p.m. The Breeders Cup Series will take a week off and will resume with the second round of preliminary action on Friday, July 26.
