Heat wave for hopeful fillies

As June begins, sires stakes action for Hambo “Oaks”-eligibles gets as thick as the heat wave currently swarming the East Coast. Sires-stakes divisions at the Meadows and the Meadowlands host 32 potential princesses of the glamour-girl division. 

On Wednesday, June 1, fillies take to the five-eighths mile at the Meadows in three Pennsylvania Sires Stakes (PASS) splits.

The first $67,000-plus split features three eligibles. Bold And Fresh (SJ’s Caviar) has a win in two starts and looks a tad better than the other two, Hot Off The Press (Cantab Hall), with a single start so far, and Tango Dancer (Broadway Hall), off the board in a pair of starts.  

The second division features the productive Pacific Splash (American Winner), although the Lady Suffolk-winner gets post 9. Glide Maid (Glidemaster) has been in the money three of five starts and Migisi (Andover Hall) races only her second at three in an attempt to get on the board.   

In the nitecap, Pantholops (Andover Hall) was made the 20-1 morning line but looks the best of the eligible trio in this affair. She has been second twice in as many starts, while no credentials have been added by Devilish Emerald (Broadway Hall) or Celebrity Katie (SJ’s Caviar) in a pair of starts each.  

Thursday, June 2, the Meadowlands hosts New Jersey Sires Stakes (NJSS) for the femmes, many racing on the track where they hope to be crowned the best on the first Saturday in August.  

There is a trio of $16,000-plus NJSS splits. Five hopefuls in a field of eight go to post in the first division, featuring last year’s hot-and-heavy Chocolatier filly Crème De Cocoa. She broke in her first effort at three and has had some stepping problems but it is suspected she will put in a number of prime performances when racing at her best. She could very well take these with ease.  

Fitness Girl (Muscles Yankee), Hey Mister (Muscles Yankee) and Seducedbychocolate (Chocolatier) make their seasonal debuts, while Sizzling Volo (Yankee Glide) tries to improve upon a second in a single start.  

Pay Me Sister (Revenue S) will lead the bettors to the windows as the choice here, no doubt, having shown an early-season penchant for cashing checks. Lost Symbol (Yankee Glide), meanwhile, is two for two but gets post 9, which could add to his value (watch the board for higher-than-worthy odds). Caitir (Classic Photo) is a win for a start and could improve.  

Wincinnatti (Windsong’s Legacy) and Love And Hate (Muscles Yankee) debut at three, Sheer Glide (Yankee Glide) continues to show some spunk, as does Firstclassprincess (Classic Photo).  

Split three has a quintet of hopefuls, all challenging the non-eligible Tui, who should be the choice. Don’t Cry Lindy (Chocolatier), the top money-earner, takes the best shot of the eligibles, which include Angelette Hanover (Yankee Glide), Redwhitenbluestone (Yankee Glide), Tawesome More (Muscles Yankee) and Caberet Princess (Yankee Glide).  

Fillies Naughty Me Hanover (Yankee Glide) and Southwind Amiga (Chocolatier) go in conditioned events that night.  

Eligible colts in conditions that night include Matrix (Yankee Glide), Wicked Schooner (Broadway Hall), Buzz Bomb (Windsong’s Legacy), Man O’War (Chocolatier), The Evictor (Valley Victor) and Carthage Hanover (Andover Hall).   

Man O’War is looking hot right now and draws inside.

A maiden field is mixed with fillies and colts and despite the outside post, Buzz Bomb could put in a big effort.
