See You At Peelers convincingly beat the boys in the 2011 Art Rooney Pace at Yonkers earlier this month. Could Crys Dream, harness racing's other femme fatale turn the trick on the trotting side?

On today's episode of Trot Radio, Norm Borg speaks with Jerry Silva, part owner of top trotting filly Crys Dream. Many feel the three-year-old daughter of Taurus Dream is good enough to compete with and beat the boys in the $1.5 million Hambletonian. In Silva's opinion, that's not going to happen.

"I don't think she should, there's enough to do to win the Oaks - I've never won the Oaks - and I look forward to that. That's where she should be," stated Silva. "Perhaps if we decide to race her at four or five she'll go against the boys but I don't think at three she should."

Silva did say that the ownership group - Reve Avec Moi, TLP Stable, Deo Volente and Silva - has yet to formally discuss racing in the Hambletonian but that he was "pretty sure" that the group shares that mindset.

The interview also touches on racing fillies against colts in general as well as Silva's thoughts on keeping horses on the track past the age of three. That movement is picking up steam as new Meadowlands' owner Jeff Gural considers limiting stakes races at the Big M to horses sired by stallions no younger than five. The full interview with Borg and Silva is available below.
