On Halloween Eve, Austin Siegelman had a scary good afternoon at Freehold Raceway. He drove four winners on the Friday (October 30) program.
He got his first win of the afternoon on Sheeza Shark N in race 2, winning a stretch battle to win on the Bill MacKenzie-trained mare. He got the double in race 7, guiding Twin B Friendly to the score for trainer Shaun Vallee.
Siegelman got the hat trick in race 9, as Massive Talent trotted to victory for trainer Jeff Smith. After a near-miss in race 10, Siegelman completed the grand slam on Odds on Daytona in the 11th race, who was indeed the odds-on favorite for trainer John Wyatt.
