At the Facebook Live post position draw Wednesday afternoon for the Super Sunday race card Sunday (Sept. 27) at Hippodrome 3R, Claude Levesque, Chairman of the Quebec Jockey Club, announced that four additional race dates have been added to the 2020 schedule.

It was welcome news at the Quebec City OTB where the press conference was held.

“The Quebec Jockey Club is pleased that despite COVID-19 not allowing spectators at the track to view and wager on live racing,” Levesque said. “The increases in simulcast wagering have been very strong and that the horsepeople in Quebec will enjoy four extra days of live racing this year.”

3R was to conclude live harness racing on Fridays on October 9 and will now add four more Fridays: October 16, 23, 30 and November 6.

“There are two conditions to the extra four days of racing,” Levesque added. “That the bars and therefore the betting houses we have are not closed by Public Health. And second is that there are obviously enough horses to fulfill these additional programs.”

First post time on Fridays is 4:00 p.m. and Sundays at 1:00 p.m. For more information, visit
