Caviart Wonder was the first of two Currier & Ives winners sent out by trainer Noel Daley

Caviart Wonder and Cool Cates gave trainer Noel Daley wins in two of the three $24,000 Currier & Ives divisions for 3-year-old trotting fillies on Friday evening at The Meadows.  Treviso would take the remaining split for trainer/driver Charlie Norris.

Heavy favorite Fine Tuned Lady (Mike Wilder) led through panels of 27 3/5, 57 1/5, and 1:26 3/5 in the opening flight, but Caviart Wonder (Jim Pantaleano) wore her down from first-over in the stretch and prevailed by a length in 1:55.  Sheez On A Cruze (Dan Rawlings) finished in third.

The winner is a Muscle Massive filly owned by Caviart Farms.  This was her fourth career win, and she has now earned $76,252.  Sent off as the 7-2 second choice, she paid $9.20 to win.

23-1 shot Amuse's (Tony Hall) had control at the 28 1/5 opening quarter and the 57 second half in the next group, but Cool Cates (Wilder) surged first-over out of fifth past the half and took the lead just past the 1:26 1/5 three-quarters.  Public choice Sianna Hanover (Dave Palone) followed Cool Cates's bid, dropped into the pocket on the far turn, and tried to mount a rally in the lane, but Cool Cates was too tough, winning by a length in 1:55 3/5.  My Cherry Pie (Aaron Merriman) rallied into third.

Cool Cates, a daughter of Yankee Glide, is trained by Daley for owner All Laid Out Stable.  Cool Cates, who won in Pennsylvania Sire Stakes competition on May 13 at The Meadows, is now a four-time winner from ten lifetime starts, and she shows $88,634 in earnings.  Dispatched at 3-2, she returned $5.00 to win.

Treviso, who also won in Pennsylvania Sire Stakes competition in her last try, backed up that victory with a 1:55 1/5 score in the final flight.  The 1-5 favorite, Treviso took over from Temple Ruins (Wilder) just beyond the 29 second opening quarter, and after clicking off middle-half stations of 59 1/5 and 1:27 1/5, she kicked home in 28 seconds to prevail by 2 1/2 lengths.  Temple Ruins held second over Broadway Idole (Palone).

Klis Brothers Stable and Carrie Norris own Treviso, a filly by Muscle Massive.  Treviso, who is now two-for-two in 2017, has seven wins from 13 career trips behind the gate.  Treviso, who has put away $186,350, paid $2.60 to win.
