Grand Slam for Marohn at Freehold Saturday
Posted 38 days
The saying that March comes “in like a lion” certainly applies to Jim Marohn Jr. He won four races on the first Saturday of March (March 6) at Freehold Raceway.
Marohn got his first win of the day in race 2, as he went gate-to-wire on Sword Ofthe Spirit for trainer Lewis Nunes. After two runner-up finishes, he got another win in race 7, as Ron Coyne-trained Ozone Blue Chip won going away.
He completed the hat trick in upset fashion, guiding Ari Allstar to a come-from-behind win in race 10 at 61/1, for trainer Julius Czermann Jr. That’s the biggest longshot to win at the Freehold meet so far.
There were no surprises in race 11, as Marohn polished off his grand slam with an easy win on favored Dream on Dream On, for trainer Ray Ahto.
Marohn also won two races on Friday’s card, making for a six-win week to begin March at Freehold. His 34 wins are good for second place in the driver standings, trailing only Austin Siegelman.
Live racing resumes at Freehold on Friday (March 12), starting at about 12:30 PM.
