King James Express Back at Freehold Saturday
Posted 114 days
Last week’s Renaissance Pace for 2-year-old colts and geldings saw an exciting showdown between New York Sire Stakes champion King James Express, and up-and-comer Captain Fancy. Even though Captain Fancy led most of the way, King James Express got up late to beat him by a head.
Now, those two are rematched in the first leg of the New Jersey Sire Stakes- Standardbred Development Fund this Saturday (October 3) at Freehold Raceway. King James Express, w winner of three straight, will leave from post position two, for trainer Mark Harder and driver Jason Bartlett. Captain Fancy, trained by Bill MacKenzie and driven by Dan Dube, has post position five.
Hurrikane Georgie, Imaginary Line, Not Today, and Solid Alibi round out the field. It will go as the fifth race, with post time scheduled for 1:50 PM.
The Saturday card also features the Renaissance Pace for 2-year-old fillies. It attracted a field of seven, with three of them prior winners. JK Disarray, a recent miadne winner at Harrah’s Philadelphia, AP Blaze of Glory, who won two in a row at that track earlier in the year, and Podium Girl, who won a leg of the Stallion Series at the Meadows, all profile as contenders. That will be the ninth race, scheduled to go at 3:10 PM.
Post time for the first race at Freehold on Saturday is 12:30 PM.
