Garden State Trot, Pick 5 Carryover at Freehold Friday
Posted 167 days
Freehold Raceway has an appetizing 10-race card this Friday (October 25), featuring the Garden State Trot for 3-year-old fillies, as well as a double pick 5 carryover.
The Garden State Trot attracted a field of six, and is scheduled as the third race, with a listed post time of 1:10 PM EDT. Golden Tricks, for trainer Ake Svanstedt, looks like the most likely winner. She won the Hudson at Yonkers Raceway earlier this year, and finished second in the Bluegrass at the Red Mile three starts back. She was well-supported in her Breeders’ Crown elimination last week, going off at 4/1. However, she was parked for most of the mile, and ended up seventh. She drew post position four for this race, and will be driven Andy Miller.
Sexy Wow, for trainer Nick Surick, also looks to rebound off a disappointing race. She was the solid second choice in last week’s NJSS-SDF Final for 3-year-old trotters, but finished a tiring third, passed in the late stages by Karen Garland’s Marveloustrix. Sexy Wow drew post position two, with Marveloustrix drawn directly to her outside.
Starita, Princess Deo, and Taja Mahala round out the field.
The pick 5 begins in the fifth race, with a 50-cent minimum bet, and has a double carryover pool of $1,525.76. All five races in the sequence feature full fields of eight. The co-headliners are two non-winners of $3,500 last five races: one for filly and mare pacers, and one for trotters. The fifth race begins at approximately 1:30 PM EDT.
The first race at Freehold on Friday is scheduled for 12:30 PM EDT.
