FREEHOLD, NJ -- October 8, 2018 -- Freehold Raceway hosted two divisions of the Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association of New Jersey's Homegrown Pace for 2-year-olds on Saturday (Oct 6).

The first division of the Homegrown Pace for 2-year-old pacing fillies was held as a non-betting race before the regularly scheduled card.
 
The Mark Harder trainee Surreality captured the $21,000 purse in 1:56.4. George Brennan and Surreality left from the rail position to lead the way every step of the mile. This is win number six and boosts her lifetime earnings to $83,361 for owners Joseph Jannuzzelli, Mark Harder and Dawn Colucci all New Jersey natives. Hurrikane Lori Ann finished second with Miss Raggedy Ann coming in third.

The second division was for the 2-year-old colt and gelding pacers with a purse of $25,000. This division was won by odds-on favorite Hurrikane Emperor for trainer John McDermott Jr. Driver Dan Dube sent the Hurrikane Kingcole colt out of the gait to take the lead and never relinquish it stopping the clock in 1:55.1.
 
Hurrikane Emperor continued his winning ways for owners Jonathan Klee Racing, Kuhen Racing LLC, Pegasis Investment Group and George Viemo banking $226,900 in lifetime earnings.
 
Hurrikane Emperor is also a dual sires stakes winner as he won the KYSS Final and the NJSS Final earlier this year. Trente Deo was second with Cool Your Heels finishing third.

Live racing resumes at Freehold Raceway on Friday, October 12, 2018, with a post time of 12:30 pm.
