Having swept the three major stakes races on the main track for older fillies and mares at the recently concluded Hollywood Park meet, Riboletta will have to face the burden of a winner in the handicap ranks as she goes to post as the 125-pound highweight in the $300,000 Clement L. Hirsch Handicap (gr. II) Saturday at Del Mar. The 5-year-old daughter of Roi Normand concedes six pounds to second highweight Excellent Meeting (119 pounds), and 16 pounds to her least weighted rival, Speaking Of Time (109).
