Driver "Irish" Joe Hanney captured the St. Paddy's Day Pace today at Freehold Raceway with 60-1 long shot Real Mystical from post eight and paid $122.00 to win.

Real Mystical, owned and trained by John Urbanski, overcame a 12½ length deficit at the quarter mile mark to score a ½ length victory at the wire over Tulfra, driven by John Sheehan.

"Irish Joe" was reunited with two of his former countrymen, Anthony Haughan and Jonathan Dunne, along with Corey Callahan, George Brennan, John McDermott, John Sheehan, and Jack Baggitt.

Live racing resumes at Freehold on Thursday with first race post time at 12:30pm.
