Five divisions of the Series Quebecoise went postward during Sunday’s card of racing at Hippodrome Trois-Rivieres, and veteran trainer/driver Marcel Barrieau notched wins with a pair of fine-looking fillies.

Shanghai Mimi went to the front and didn’t look back in her $7,000 assignment, much to the delight of the fans that hammered her down to be the 1-5 favourite. The three-year-old daughter of Shanghai Phil-Canaco Nuget sliced out panels of :27.2, :57 and 1:26.3 before cruising home in :29.4 to win by three lengths in 1:56.2. Lily Star BG was next best, with Perfect Tonight taking home the show dough.

Hudson Standrdbrd Stb Inc of Hudson, QC bred and owns the seven-time winner, who extended her winning streak to three-in-a-row. She’s now 6-for-8 this season and her 2013 bankroll sits at $24,467. She’s just shy of $30,000 in lifetime earnings.

Racey Miss also pushed her winning streak to three-in-a-row thanks to her 1:57.3 triumph in the very next race. The daughter of Shanghai Phil-Racey Date brushed to the lead at the half and never looked back en route to the win. Runner-up Sam Alexis was 1-3/4 lengths in arrears, with Ulla Bayama a distant third.

Sent off as the 1-5 favourite, Racey Miss has gone 4-for-6 this season after putting together a 7-for-10 record last year for owner/breeder Hudson Standrdbrd Stb Inc of Hudson, QC. She’s banked in excess of $25,000 this season and more than $85,000 to date.

Mckinney proved to be too much for the competition to handle in the lone $7,700 division for colt and gelding pacers. Denis St. Pierre hustled the Yves Tessier trainee to the lead and the son of Santanna Blue Chip-Thepansofiwojima wired them up in 1:55.1. Runner-up The Real One was 1-1/4 lengths in arrears, with Chevalier Semalu taking home the show dough.

Arthur Slack of Rockwood, ON owns the gelding who now boasts a 3-3-0 record from 10 trips to the track this season. The five-time winner has banked $65,046 to date.

Canbec Kangourou won the first of two divisions for three-year-old trotters. The co-ed event saw Jocelyn Gendron hustle Canbec Kangourou to the lead and the filly led through fractions of :30.1, 1:02.1 and 1:32.3 before using a :29-second closing quarter to win by a length over race favourite Offson in 2:01.3. Green Tea Cybele was third.

Trainer Daniel Martin of Becancour, QC co-owns the daughter of Amigo Hall-Canbec Beauty with Lapharmaciedekedgwick of Kedgwick, NB. After going winless in her first seven starts the filly has answered with four consecutive wins. The 2:01.3 clocking was a career-best for the career winner of $17,930.

Alley Bayama won the other division for the trotters, and she did so in 2:05.4 for trainer/driver Yves Filion. The daughter of Majestic Son-Balanced Issue front-stepped to the half-length triumph over Canbec Kennedy, with third prize going to Excel P V.

Bayama Farms Inc of Saint-Andre-D’Argenteuil, QC owns the sophomore who won for just the second time in her career. She’s managed to stash away close to $23,000 in lifetime earnings.
