JM's Final Treasure Headlines Freehold Saturday Card
Posted 5 days
In two starts at Freehold Raceway this season, Jm’s Finaltreasure hasn’t had an anxious moment. He’s won two stakes in dominating fashion, taking the Renaissance Pace for 2-year-old colts and geldings on Sept. 25 in 1:53 4/5, and won the second leg of the New Jersey Sire Stakes- Standardbred Development Fund series last week in 1:54. In between those starts, he was impressive in a leg of the Bluegrass series at the Red Mile, going in 1:50 4/5 on Oct. 2.
This Saturday (October 16), he’ll look to add to his Freehold credentials in the final of the NJSS-SDF series. He drew post position four in the field of six, for trainer Ron Burke and driver Joe Bongiorno. He’s listed at 2-5 on the morning line, but will likely go off at lower odds.
Camouflage Money looms as the biggest danger to Jm’s Finaltreasure. He won the first leg of the series on Oct 2 in 1:53 4/5, then finished second behind Jm’s Finaltreasure last week. He’ll try to pull off the upset from post position six, for trainer Linda Toscano and driver Troy Beyer.
Bloodhound, Shakertown, Vintage Valentino, and One of the Guys round out the field. The race is scheduled as the fifth on the card, with a post time of 1:50 PM.
The Saturday card also features the second leg of the NJSS-SDF for 2-year-old filly pacers. The top two finishers in leg 1 last week, Counterparty Risk and JK I Feel Fine, drew posts six and seven, respectively, in the seven-horse field. Counterparty Risk went gate-to-wire to win in 1:56 3/5 last week, for trainer Tony Alagna and driver Vinny Ginsburg. JK I Feel Fine sat in the pocket and held on for second, for trainer Brian Malone and driver Jim Marohn Jr.
That race is the third race on the card, scheduled for 1:10 PM.
First post time on the 13-race Saturday card is approximately 12:30 PM.
