Little Brown Jug winner Southwind Ozzi will prepare for a trip to the Breeders’ Crown by qualifying at Freehold Raceway on Friday morning (October 11).
“Ozzi”, trained by Freehold-based Bill MacKenzie and owned by Vincent Ali and Alma Iafelice, is coming off a second-place finish in the Tattersalls at the Red Mile on October 6. In addition to his Jug victory, he won the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes final and the Adios earlier in the year. All told, he’s won nine races from twelve starts on the year, while bankrolling more than $800,000.
He will qualify by himself on Friday morning, at approximately 11:20 AM EDT. Steve Smith will be the driver. Freehold will live-stream the qualifier on their Facebook page, starting at around 11:15 AM.
Following the qualifier, Freehold will conduct a ten-race pari-mutuel program, beginning at 12:30 PM. There will also be a non-betting race at 12:15 PM.
