Louis-Philippe Roy, 2018's O'Brien Award winner as Driver of the Year, returns to his hometown on Sunday (July 14) for the Quebec-Bred Series Finals at Hippodrome 3R.

There are 11 races on Sunday’s program and Roy, who also led all drivers in Canada last year in wins and money won, is listed to drive in nearly every race. The stakes-packed program has four $30,000 finals for the Quebec-Bred Series plus four divisions of the opening round of the Breeders Cup Series for three-year-old pacers.

Of the eight stakes races on Sunday, LPR is listed to drive in seven of them. He has only one morning line favourite, YS Tallia (post seven) in the eighth race $30,000 final for pacing fillies. She has dominated the series and is going for her fourth straight triumph.

There are two trotters and one pacer who could become the first ever to win four Quebec championships. They are Capteur De Reve, Maximuscle and Atomic Million AM.

Capteur De Reve goes for his fourth straight title in the seventh trot final. Now age five, the son of Muscle Mass will have a very tough task as he starts from the outside in post seven for driver Stephane Gendron. Last week he beat the odds-on favorite, Seeyou Men, who drew post one.

Maximuscle goes from post three for driver Louis-Philippe Roy in trying for his fourth straight title.

Then in the tenth race, Atomic Million AM heads the final for older pacing horses and starts from post five for driver Guy Gagnon. Undefeated at 3R this season, Atomic Million AM goes for his fifth straight win this year for trainer, owner and breeder, Alain Martin.

Now age eight, the son of Million Dollar Cam boasts four wins in six starts this year, his fastest mile coming last week with a 1:54.1 triumph, the fastest mile at H3R this season.
