The connections of eight of North America’s top four-year-old pacers have entered their charges to contest the $200,000 Prix D’Ete, which will take place this Sunday (August 20) at Hippodrome 3R.

The post position draw for the big race will take place live at Hippodrome 3R tonight (Wednesday, August 16) in the winner’s circle after the fourth race on the program.

On Wednesday, Hippodrome 3R will also be showcasing the fourth leg of the World Driving Championship. The WDC dashes have been carded as Races 5, 6, 7 and 8.

Heading the Prix D’Ete horses is Sintra from the Dave Menary barn. The son of Mach Three has won $222,000 this year and in his last start won at Mohawk Racetrack in 1:48.4.

The fastest of the horses entered is Dr J Hanover, who hails from the barn of Tony Alagna. Earlier this season he became the fastest Canadian winner of all-time with his 1:46.4 triumph at Mohawk Racetrack.

Michael Vanderkemp’s Awesomeness will head into the race off of a lifetime best 1:50 victory at Mohawk. Also entered off of a lifetime best mile is Sports Authority, who paced to victory in 1:52.4 at Rideau Carlton Raceway this past weekend.

And the Jimmy Takter Stable has two top horses entered, Western Fame and Roll Away Joe.

“What a great field we have for our Prix D’Ete race,” said Claude Vevesque, president of the Quebec Jockey Club. “Top drivers and top horses will make for a superb race on Sunday.”
