Siegelman Wins Three at Freehold
Posted 16 days
By, Katie Eick for Freehold Raceway
On Friday, November 17, 2023 Austin Siegelman won three out of ten races at New Jersey’s “afternoon delight”, Freehold Raceway.
His first victory was made in race two, where he piloted 7-5 Jossie James A to the lead from post four and remained unchallenged as they set the pace for the rest of the mile and crossed the wire in 1:55.3. This win was the first of the day for trainer Cameron Capone, who would later earn a training double when his trainee, Panty Line was victorious at 4-1 after being parked out for the entire mile in race ten.
Siegelman won again in race four. He swooped three-wide passed the field in the first turn from post seven with 5-2 King Cast (Michael Posner) and continued to trot away from the field without facing any pressure as he finished in 2:00.1.
But surely the most exciting victory of the day for Siegelman came in race six when he steered his very own Lincoln’s Girl N (Leah Posner) to victory from post five. Similar to his other wins, he quickly went to the lead and set the pace for the rest of the mile, though he did face some pressure in the final turn, it was not too much to handle for Siegelman and his mare as they completed the mile in 1:57.2.
Eric Abbatiello had a driving double after winning with Hold Me Closer (Jenna Cornelison) in race seven and completing the Capone training double in race ten with Panty Line.
Freehold returns with eleven more races tomorrow, Saturday (Nov. 18) starting at 12:30pm.
