CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- P.C.B. Enterprises, Inc.'s Nobel's Honey, an impressive seven-length winner against a field of $75,000 claimers June 5 at Belmont Park, heads a field of eight fillies and mares scheduled to go in tonight's $25,000-added Blue And Gold Stakes at the Charles Town Races.
The seven-furlong distaff is restricted to 3-year-olds and upward, registered W. Va.-bred, sired or raised.
Nobel's Honey, a 3-year-old daughter of Noble Nashua out of Here Comes Patsy, was an easy winner against allowance fillies in her last start at Charles Town Feb. 23. Before that, she captured last fall's $25,000 Budweiser Breeders Classic, which showcases the mountain state's 2-year-old fillies.
Nobel's Honey, assigned 116 pounds by racing secretary and handicapper Richard Moore, will be ridden by jockey Larry Reynolds. The team of P.C.B. Enterprises -- trainer Victor Espinosa and Reynolds -- will be gunning for its second straight stakes victory at Charles Town, having captured the June 13 Shenandoah Valley Stakes with Skin's Fan.
