The fillies get underway with the first division in the fourth race on the program.

There is but one winner in the short field, Papillon Bleu, in post five, who won a second race in the series for driver Pierre Luc Roy, in 2:06.1. The daughter of Muscle Mass is trained by Maxime Velaye for the Provoquante Stable that bred the filly.

Also entered is Yves Filion’s Magic Lady in post three. This daughter of Donato Hanover has been second in both her starts in the series.

The sixth race second division features Precieuse CC, the top-rated fillies in the series. She has won both her starts in the Future Stars for trainer/driver Claude Beausoleil, the fastest a 2:04.1 clocking.

Sired by Angus Hall, Precieuse CC is owned by Marie Andree Cournoyer and in her last start she was second in the $19,850 Grass Roots at Mohawk Raceway, race timed in 1:58.3.

She will be facing a tough foe in Stand For Justice from the rail for driver Stephane Brosseau. Stand For Justice has also been racing in the Grassroots Series in Ontario and finished second and third in that series, race timed in 1:59.3 for trainer Dany Fontaine and the Gaetan Bono Stable that bred and owns the filly.

The colts do battle in the eighth race where Rosaire Renaud’s Y A Muscle Mass heads the field from the rail. This son of Muscle Mass has a win and a second in the series and figures to try and lead from start to finish. Renaud, of Mirabel, owns, trains and drives Y A Muscle Mass.

Other contenders include Yankee Photo (post two), Victorio E (post four) and Magic Relief (post seven).
