Only one Crown supplement

July 17, 2006

Katherine Bardis’ Easton Alliance N was the only supplement to any of the four Breeders Crown events to be raced Saturday, July 29, at the Meadowlands. Horses eligible to the Breeders Crown events must enter by 9:00 a.m., Tuesday, July 18, also at the Meadowlands race office. Eliminations, if necessary, will be raced Saturday, July 22.

The supplemental fee of $37,500 for the daughter of 1997 Crown champ Village Jasper makes her eligible to the $331,500 Breeders Crown Mare Pace. Though her last pari-mutuel start came in the Matriarch on May 14, she has since qualified, winning in 1:52.4 for driver John Campbell.

One of four races worth a combined US$1.8 million slated for the twilight card on Saturday, July 29, at the Meadowlands, the Mare Pace has been a showcase for such extraordinary distaff champions as Eternal Camnation and Bunny Lake, the two richest mares of all time.

Easton Alliance N, a 5 year old, was born and raised in New Zealand and began her North American racing career in 2005, winning all three of her starts at Cal Expo in California. She was sent east in March and won her first start at the Meadowlands, upsetting the favored Loyal Opposition in the $118,560 Overbid final.

There have been eight mares supplemented to this event in past years but only one, Ron’s Girl, has won.

Top contenders for the Mare Pace include three former Breeders Crown champions: Burning Point, Restive Hanover and defending champ Loyal Opposition, as well as season’s record holder Glowing Report.

A complete listing of all eligibles to the four open events and more information on the race can be found at www.hambletonian.org.
