Clement has two for Pebbles

Trainer Christophe Clement could send two fillies to the Columbus Day running of the Pebbles at one mile on the turf, with Ruthenia his most likely candidate and Miss Liberty, a new addition to the barn, also under consideration for the race.

"Ruthenia, she'll be the logical choice," Clement said. "She came from Saratoga in good order, and she has been running well although she has not won a stakes this year. This is a logical step. The French filly, Miss Liberty, we'll work her this weekend and we'll decide after that."

Ruthenia, a full sister to Grade 1-winning turf mare Rutherienne, whom Clement also trained, finished second in two consecutive grass stakes at Saratoga, the Riskaverse on September 2 and the Hattie Moseley on July 30. The daughter of Pulpit is campaigned by her breeder, Virginia Kraft Payson.

Miss Liberty, a stakes winner in her native France was recently purchased in partnership by a group that includes George Bolton and sent to the United States, Clement said. The Pebbles would be her first start in this country after recording four wins, one second and one third from nine starts abroad.
