Beinhauers have trio of trotting fillies in C&I

The young ladies looking to score in Wednesday's $108,000 Filly Division of the Currier & Ives at The Meadows may find that the road to the winners' circle goes through the Beinhauer stable. Rick and Regina Beinhauer will send out a trio of talented 3-year-old trotting fillies — one for each division and each with a legitimate shot at victory. First post Wednesday is 6:55 PM, with the Currier & Ives going as races 4, 6 and 8. The Open Division of the Currier & Ives is set for Friday, June 7, at The Meadows.
Dan Rawlings, who will pilot each of the Beinhauer homebreds — Ruffleshaveridges, Promisemethis, Chiptomylou — suggests that Ruffleshaveridges may be the saltiest of the stablemates right now.
She's definitely the sharpest and the most handy to race,” Rawlings said. "I feel pretty confident with Ruffles that I'll be able to dictate the race. I can pretty much go where I want to go with her because she's so handy. Rick has her sharp every week. I just point her in the right direction.”
A daughter of Tom Ridge-TS Fast Forward with $142,194 on her card, Ruffleshaveridges will leave from post 2 in the eighth race. Her chief threat figures to be Curtsy Hanover, a PA Sires Stakes winner at The Meadows who broke stride in her last start.
Promisemethis (race 6, post 7) has won 9 of 15 career starts. But the daughter of Chip Chip Hooray-Promisemespring has drawn in the toughest split, forced to take on Ray Schnittker's Royal Assets, last year's Matron Stake winner; Jonas Czernyson's Ma Chere Hall, who captured the final of the 2012 Kindergarten Series, and Classic Martine, the winner of the Weiss final recently acquired by the Chris Oakes stable.
"She drew in tough, but I think she's as fast as any filly in the race,” Rawlings said. "If the trip works out right, we'll be right there at the wire. I'm hoping they'll mix it up enough that I can catch some live flow.”
Chiptomylou (Chip Chip Hooray-Pinup Springs) may be the least accomplished of the Beinhauer trio, but she's also something of an overachiever and leaves from post 2 in a division without any bearcats.
"She's a little horse that gives you absolutely everything she's got every week,” Rawlings said. "We'll leave the gate and hope to follow the right ones. It will be hard for her not to get a check because she'll get herself in position leaving the car.” (The Meadows)
