Fauvette Gale kicked off Hippodrome de Quebec’s 10-day meet on Saturday afternoon with a track record performance for two-year-old trotting fillies.

In the $2,100 opening trot, Fauvette Gale, with Jerome Lombart in the bike, fired off the gate from Post 2 and reached the opening quarter in :28-seconds with a 13-length lead on her rivals. The daughter of Taurus Dream-Promising Gale maintained a double-digit margin to the half in :58.1 and three-quarters in 1:29.2 before coasting home for the 2:03 triumph. The time of the mile lowered the former track record, held by Garlapp Content, by one full second.

Favourite Noisette P V (Jocelyn Gendron) finished seven lengths behind in second while Northernpromise (Sylvain Lacaille) recovered from an early miscue to finish 18 lengths back in third.

Fauvette Gale paid $7.00 to win as the 5-2 second choice in the field. Lombart also trains, owns and bred the winner of two races in six outings and $3,136.

The Hippodrome de Quebec meet will continue next Saturday, September 25. Saturday and Sunday cards will be held in October, with Quebec City's historic five-mile race scheduled for the final program on October 24.
