The $1.7 million Hambletonian and the filly companion stakes, the $850,000 Hambletonian Oaks, will be raced on Saturday afternoon, Aug. 4, at the New Meadowlands Racetrack. Eliminations, if necessary, will be raced Saturday, July 28.
Uncle Peter, the two-year-old Breeders Crown winner over Possess The Will, is also among the eligibles. The Hambletonian Society, which has owned and serviced the race since its inception in 1926, received 213 total payments for the 2012 Hambletonian and “Oaks” events, hosted by the Meadowlands Racetrack since 1981.
The Hambletonian trail commences Saturday, May 5, with the Dexter Cup at Freehold Raceway. As we have over the past few years, this department at TwinSpires, in association with the Hambletonian Society, will cover the races leading to the finals fields as well as cover the events live from the Meadowlands.
