20 FILLIES FORSE TWO HAMBLETONIAN OAKS ELIMS FOR SAT. JULY 30

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ, -- July 25, 2016 -- Twenty fillies entered today for the $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks, the filly division of the Hambletonian.
Hambletonian Festival week kicks off on July 30 with two $50,000 eliminations to narrow the field to 10 for the $500,000 Oaks Final on Hambletonian Day, Sat., Aug. 6, at The Meadowlands Racetrack, East Rutherford, NJ.

Favorite in the field will be Dan Patch divisional Champion Broadway Donna, a daughter of 2007 Hambletonian winner Donato Hanover and 2009 Oaks winner Broadway Schooner. Owned by Jules Siegel’s Fashion Farms and trained by Jim Campbell, Broadway Donna has made just three starts this year, with 2 wins and a second. She prevailed by a gritty half-length in her division of the Del Miller Memorial over All The Time and Celebrity Eventsy on July 16 at The Meadowlands.

The other Miller Memorial division featured a rare deadheat between Unica Steed and Woman’s Will. Those two will match up again in the same Oaks elimination along with Ontario Sires Stake star Caprice Hill, making her first pari-mutuel Meadowlands appearance after racking up more than $578,696 north of the border.

Swedish trainer-driver Ake Svanstedt entered a total of five fillies in the Oaks elims. Jimmy Takter has three representatives, including Unica Steed, a daughter of 1998 Hambletonian winner Muscles Yankee and Premier Steed by Workaholic. Unica Steed was foaled in Italy, sired in France and is owned by French stable Ecurie AB Trot, and yet has American trotting blood coursing through both sides of her pedigree.

Entries for the Hambletonian close at 9:00 a.m. on Aug. 1 at The Meadowlands race office.

Post positions for the $500,000 final will be drawn and morning lines assigned on Monday Aug. 1, at the Hambletonian Press conference and post-positions draw, at 4:00 p.m. in Victory Sports Bar at The Meadowlands. The draw will be streamed live on the Meadowlands web site.

The $300,000 John Cashman Jr. Memorial, $284,000 Cane Pace, $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks and $1 million Hambletonian will be featured on a live 90-minute broadcast on CBS Sports Network from 4-5:30 p.m. [EDT] on Aug. 6.
