Former track record holder and two-time Quebec-Bred Champion Seeyou Men makes a return to the races on Sunday (Oct. 27) at Hippodrome 3R after a few months in the field.

Seeyou Men starts from post four for driver Francis Picard in the third race, which is the featured Preferred Trot.

The seven-year-old Muscle Mass gelding is trained by Daniel Martin for breeder Chantal Gravel of St-Cyrille-De-Wendover, who co-owns the horse with Catheline Pelletier of Mirabel. Seeyou Men currently has $268,000 earned in his career.

The last start Seeyou Men made was in the $30,000 Quebec-Bred Series Final at 3R back on July 14 when he finished a game second to rival Capteur De Reve.

Then it was time for rest according to Daniel Martin.

“He has had no injuries,” said Martin, “We just wanted to give him a nice break after making 20 starts.”

Seeyou Men scored his lifetime mark of 1:55.4 this season and last week won his qualifying race at 3R in 2:02.4 by three open lengths. He is listed in the morning line at odds of 7/2.

“For this Sunday there is no pressure on Seeyou Men,” Martin said. “He always gives everything he has. He is a very good horse.”

Capteur De Reve is also in the field and starts from the rail for driver Stephane Gendron. He is the only trotter who is a four-time Quebec Series Champion. The five-year-old gelding, also by Muscle Mass, is trained by Maxime Velaye for breeder-owner Provoquante Stable of Mirabel.

Although winless since August 25 at Rideau Carleton Raceway, Capteur De Reve was second in his last start by a neck in 1:56.4 at Rideau Carleton.

The race favourite is none other than Volare from post five for driver Tyler Jones.

This five-year-old gelding by Conway Hall won his last start at 3R in the Preferred Trot with a 2:00.2 triumph. He has a record of 1:52.4 and earlier this season won at Yonkers Raceway in 1:57.1.

He is trained by Michel Allard for his son, Rene Allard, of Matamoras, Penn.

Rounding out the field are the lone mare in the contest, Missionoftheheart (post two) and former Quebec-Bred Champion Holiday Party (post three).
