Nine trotting mares will battle it out in the fourth and final preliminary round of the Quebec-Bred Series at the Hippodrome 3R on Tuesday evening (June 14).

Tuesday’s races will comprise the final round for four and five-year-old mares and horses. The top eight point earners from the four preliminary rounds will return to 3R on Sunday, June 26 for their respective $35,000 finals.

Mares will be featured in Race 8, and four of the distaffers that have been entered have won preliminary rounds.

The morning line favorite for Race 8 is trainer Jean Tourigny’s SOS Revange, who has won three of her four starts this season for driver Gaetan Lamy. She will start from Post 5. Last week she suffered her first defeat of the season, which was a tough neck loss to rival Viva Bayama.

Viva Bayama will start from Post 3 on Tuesday. She was able to grind it out last week against SOS Revange and earned her first victory of the season, which has guaranteed herself a spot in her June 26 final. Viva Bayama is trained and driven by Carl Duguay.

The second early choice in the race is SOS Striking Monte, who will start from Post 7 for driver Pascal Berube. The daughter of Striking Sahbra is trained by Guy Roy and won an opening round of the series in 1:59.4. She was second and third in her other two starts in the series.

SOS Afterthestorm will make it three ‘SOS’ horses in Race 8 (but all of the mares have different owners and trainers). She was an upset winner in the series last week while racing at odds of 12-1. She was a gate-to-wire winner in her race last week and romped by five open lengths for her first win of the season for trainer/driver Francine Morrissette.

The horses will do battle in a non-wagering race that will be held between the fifth and sixth races on the wagering program. The non-wagering race will feature a field of five.

Me The Boss will start from Post 5 for driver Louis-Philippe Roy. Last week Me The Boss was able to come on the outside against race leader Maximuscle and collar him around the final turn and then close in the final strides to win by a neck in 1:59.2.

Francis Richard trains Me The Boss, who now boasts four wins on the season.

Maximuscle will start alongside Me The Boss from Post 4 for driver Mario Charron and trainer Maxime Velaye.

First-race post time for the Tuesday card will be 7:00 p.m.
