I Kill Time paced to a 1:54.3 New Jersey Sire Stakes record for two-year-old pacing fillies to win a $100,000 NJSS Premier Division Championship Final Saturday at Freehold Raceway.
The 2010 NJSS Premier Division season, which began in May at The Meadowlands, concluded four races later on the Freehold program with a 1:54.3 victory by Foreclosure N in the $100,000 Championship for two-year-old pacing colts and geldings. The NJSS Green Acres Division continues at Freehold through October 16.
I Kill Time (Western Ideal-Her Mattjesty), with Yannick Gingras driving, got by the pace-setting Myluvmylife (Rocknroll Hanover-Dreamlands Hardie) at the three-quarter mile marker, but had to hold off a late charge to win her fifth race in eight career starts.
The Paul Reid-trainee more than doubled her earnings to $94,525 with the $50,000 winner’s share of the purse for owner Seize The Day Industries of Boca Raton, FL. Her 1:54.3 clocking erased the previous mark of 1:54.4 by Coochie Mama in 2002.
Gingras also piloted two winners of $10,000 NJSS Green Acres contests for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings on the racing card, Rockin The House (Rocknroll Hanover-Donkeys Can Talk) in 1:53.2 and Terlingua (Artsplace-Western City) in 1:54.Foreclosure N, driven by Tim Tetrick, was first over at the half and dueled nose-to-nose with Rock To Glory (Rocknroll Hanover-Faded Glory) into the deep stretch before getting in front just before the wire.
For the Mark Steacy-trained colt, it was his fourth victory in seven starts and second in a row. The $50,000 winner’s share of the purse boosted the colt’s earnings to $114,430 for owner R. Peter Heffering of Port Perry, Ontario.
