FREEHOLD, NJ — September 9, 2018 — Freehold hosted another weekend of the New Jersey Sire Stakes Standardbred Development Fund Legs among other stakes.  Friday (Sept 7) saw three divisions of the second leg of the NJSS SDF for 2-year-old filly trotters with a purse of $7,500.  Then on Saturday (Sept 8) the $25,000 Charles Smith Final and $83,725 Renaissance Final took place.

The first division of the NJSS SDF for 2-year-old fillies was won by Ake Svanstedt trainee Golden Tricks.  The Trixton filly sat the two hole to storm past the competition in 1:59.4.  This makes lifetime win number one for owners Brixton Medical. Big Weezy and Miss Trixton finished in a dead heat for second place.

Division number two belonged to Ron Burke with his filly July.  July stalked the field from position four until the stretch where she trotted past the leaders to stop the clock in 2:00.2.  Owned and bred by Diamond Creek the Father Patrick filly earned her first-lifetime win.  Trelanney was a close second while the odds-on favorite Given came in third.

The last division of the day went to odds-on favorite Surreality. Trained by Mark Harder the So Surreal filly left from post position five to make the front and never look back winning in 1:56.3.  This win makes a win and a second in the SDF legs for owners Joseph Jannuzzelli, Mark Harder and Dawn Colucci.  Silver Credit came in second while Chaperess rounded out the trifecta.

Saturday opened up with the Charles Smith Final for 3-year-old colt and gelding trotters, before the regular card. U Need Stones nosed out the competition in 1:59.4 for trainer and co-owner Ron Burke.  Shoshie Deo finished second while Paging Doctor Teo came in third.

The feature race on Saturday's card was the Renaissance Final for 2-year-old colt and gelding pacers with a purse of $83,725.  Tom Fanning’s Just Plain Loco won by the disqualification of Trente Deo in 1:57.1.  This is win number 4 for owners Paul Lang and Fanning Racing and boosts the Well Said geldings lifetime earnings to $89,512.   Trente Deo was placed second with Mark Witha K finishing third.
