Currier & Ives for gals in three splits

On Wednesday, June 8, Hambletonian Oaks eligibles are mixed in a trio of Currier & Ives stakes at the Meadows. Each split is worth $40,000.  

Four hopefuls go in the first split, with Celebrity Katie (SJ’s Caviar) returning off of a surprise win in a Pennsylvania Sires Stakes (PASS) on June 1 and has to face Pacific Splash (American Winner), who put in a clunker in another PASS split that day.  

Also in the mix are Lady Ridge (Tom Ridge) and Too Busy To Care (Chocolatier), either yet to put in a strong race.   

In split two, Hot Off The Press (Cantab Hall) is one of a trio of eligibles, also coming off of a surprise PASS win on June 1. She may look better than this crowd, though she has yet to prove she can go with the division’s best.  

Four eligibles are in the nightcap. Bold And Fresh (SJ’s Caviar) was scratched from one of the June-1 PASS miles and shows up here hopefully packing the punch expected from her in that affair.    

Pantholops (Andover Hall) did not fire last out and must be better here to beat “Bold” and any improvements coming from the likes of Pay Me Sister (Revenue S) and Im A Centerfold (Glidemaster).
