Trois-Rivieres, QC - With a rare Thursday night racing card, the Hippodrome 3R has spiced up the harness racing program that will feature seven stakes races, including four $30,000 finals of the Quebec-Bred Series.

Post time is 6:30 pm for the 10-race program that starts right off in the first race with the $30,000 Final for four and five-year-old pacing mares.

Featured are two Quebec-Bred Champions, Queen Elsa and HP Sissy.

Queen Elsa starts from post five for driver Stephane Gendron while rival HP Sissy starting alongside in post five for driver Stephane Brosseau. Both horses have yet to win a race during the series but have the back class to be the favorites.

Their main competition will be return winner Art De Gagnee (post 1) and Wild River Swan (post 8).

The 6th race final for trotting mares is headed by EAU Naturelle, who is on a three-race winning streak for trainer/driver Simon Delisle. They will face a challenge from arch rival Y S Suzanne in post three for driver Guy Gagnon.

A real battle will take place in the 7th race final for pacing horses where last years three-year-old champion, Wildriverbumblebee, goes against Dance With Joe (post 5) and C L Sportaction (post 3).

Wildriverbumblebee is coming off a 1:54 score at Rideau Carleton for driver Guy Gagnon.

The 8th race is the last $30,000 final and is it for trotting horses.

Kinnder Dangerous (post 2) is the slight favorite for driver Justin Filion but faces a stellar field including past champion, Holiday Party (post 1), who won the Invitational Trot at H3R in his last start for driver Pascal Berube.

Last year's three-year-old champion, Capteur De Reve, goes from five along with return winners Orlys Dream (post 6) and KFB Amigo Cool (post 4).

Also, on the program is the third preliminary round of the Breeders Cup Series for three-year-old trotters.

The second race is the first of two divisions for the colts. Yankee Photo (post 6) is the early favorite going against Orlys Fury (post 3) and Sir Chopin (post 5).

The 5th race second division features return winners SG Goliath King from post five for trainer/driver Sylvain Grenier taking on Nobodynojustice (post 1), who was a winner in the last leg of the series.

The fillies do battle in the third race where series leg winner Kinnder Prediction (post 2) with driver Justin Filion takes on Stand For Justice (post one) and Montanaalaska (post 5).
