The Quebec Jockey Club has announced that this year’s edition of the $200,000 Prix d’Ete for four-year-old pacers will also feature a $50,000 consolation.

The consolation will be raced on the same day as the final and will feature the entered horses that did not make it to the final.

Nominations for the Prix d'Ete must be postmarked by Sunday, March 15, 2020

One of only a handful of opportunities restricted to just four-year-old pacers, the Prix d’Ete is the showcase stakes event of the season at the Hippodrome 3R and will take place on Sunday, August 23 this year.

“Management at the Quebec Jockey Club added the $50,000 consolation race after we had so many entries for the final last year,” explained Hippodrome 3R General Manager Murielle Thomassin. “We had 16 horses entered and only eight get into the final. Now, provided we have that many entries again this year, there will be the $50,000 consolation race, and the consolation race can feature up to nine starters.”

Continued from 2018 in the conditions for the race is that horses that finish sixth through eighth will each get $1,000. Only the top eight money winners this season, up until time of entry, will be allowed in the Prix d’Ete final.

Please note there are no supplemental payments allowed for the Prix d’Ete. This first nomination payment must be made to be eligible.

The Prix D’Ete, once the richest and most prestigious race in Canada, was revived by the Quebec Jockey Club back in 2013.

Hippodrome 3R’s 40-date 2020 season is scheduled to get underway on Sunday, May 2. Post time will be at 1:00 p.m.
