A set of $33,000 Elite divisions for three-year-old trotting fillies went to the gate at Sulky Quebec on Thursday evening, and winning cheques were doled out to Altesse and Afternoon Dreams following their impressive scores.

After making breaks in her last two starts, Altesse got her act together in tonight's third lifetime start thanks in part to a set of trotting hopples.

The daughter of Monte Hall, who was sent off at odds of 8-1, rallied to a 2:02.4 victory in her division for trainer Guy Corbeil and driver Gilles Gendron. Stromble Dream (Jean Pierre Dubois) was second and Victoire Duharas (Sylvain Filion) rounded out the top three.

It was the first lifetime win for the filly, who is owned by Ecurie Provoquante of Mirabel, Quebec.

Afternoon Dreams won for the fourth time in just five lifetime starts when she took the second division in a time of 2:02.3 for trainer/driver Normand Bardier Jr.

The Dream Vacation miss, who is owned by Serge Pigeon of Laval, Quebec, enjoyed a ground-saving journey for most of the mile before summoning up a :28.4 final quarter, which was more than enough to seal the deal.

Race favourite Canaco Runner (Sylvain Filion) was second best and Thats So Raven (Denis St. Pierre) rounded out the Triactor ticket.

The lion's share of the purse bumped Afternoon Dreams' lifetime bankroll to $21,740.
