Seventeen colts and a lone filly entered the 93rd Hambletonian, to be raced as two $100,000 elimination heats for the $1 million final on Saturday, Aug. 4, at the Meadowlands Racetrack, East Rutherford, N.J.

Atlanta, a sophomore daughter of Chapter Seven-Hemi Blue Chip, trained and driven by the father-son team of Rick Zeron and Scott Zeron, will attempt to become just the 14th filly to win the Hambletonian title in its 93 years. The last filly to do so was the world champion Continentalvictory in 1996.

Post positions for the Hambletonian heats and the $500,000 final of the Hambletonian Oaks for 3-year-old female trotters will be drawn and morning lines assigned on a Facebook live post-position draw at 2 p.m. (EDT) on the Meadowlands Facebook page and also streamed live on the Meadowlands YouTube channel.

The top-five finishers in each Hambletonian elimination heat will advance to the same-day final later Saturday afternoon. Elimination winners draw for inside posts 1-5 and all other finalists will then be placed in an open draw. There is no Lasix or any race day medication permitted in the eliminations or finals of the Hambletonian Oaks or Hambletonian Open.

The $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 Saturday.

Below is the alpha list of entries to the Hambletonian.
