TC Scandal loves the view at 3R

Posted: October 23, 2021 at 12:01 p.m. ET

When TC Scandal first came to race at 3R Hippodrome last week, she must have enjoyed the view as she raced through the peloton in the mares’ preferred pace. She is looking for a new performance this Sunday (October 24).

It was the first time that the driver Pascal Bérubé drove the TC Scandal. But that didn’t mean Bérubé didn’t know about the mare.

“Yes indeed, it was my first race with it last week,” said Berube. “But I had seen her run at Mohawk a few times and I liked her.”

What did trainer Yves Tessier tell you about Sportswriter’s six-year-old mare?

“Sunday morning on my way to the races, I spoke with Yves and he told me that she was there (at 3R) to cheer herself up because she had had difficult starts during her last races,” said explained Bérubé. “He said she had a good week and was ready to run.”

Owned by François Morin de Beauceville, TC Scandal has four wins in 31 starts, but had not obtained a check in its last four starts.

“In her last 10 starts, she has paced in 1:52 a few times,” added Berube. “So I was confident that she could stand up to the best of Trois Rivières even though her last four races weren’t very good. “

Last week at 3R, Berube sent TC Scandal straight ahead and never looked back as he won by two lengths in 1: 57.3.

“As for Sunday, I don’t know how it will be, says Bérubé, but I know that his trainer always does a good job with his horses and that François Morin, his owner, loves competition horses. So it’s an advantage for me to drive horses for a team like this. We just have to do the work on the track.

TC Scandal starts from post four of the eighth race.

Who will TC Scandal compete against? Well, seven of the horses entered lost to TC Scandal last week. Sieras Rose (post 2), moved up in class after having wired the field last week in 1: 59.1. It will be driven by Pierre-Luc Roy.
