Freehold, NJ --- Ever since coming to Freehold Raceway, Lucius Vorenus has excelled over the half-mile oval. He continued his winning ways on Friday (November 15), as he took the harness racing $50,000 final of the Standardbred Breeders' and Owner's Association of New Jersey trotting series.
 
Sent off as the even-money favorite, he was put right on the lead by driver Jason Bartlett. French Cafe, the clear-cut second choice, drafted in the pocket, but Lucius Vorenus was still able to set steady fractions of 28.4 for a quarter and 59.0 for a half.
 
Nearing three-quarters, Lucius Vorenus began to pull away, as he set the fraction in a slow 1:28.2. French Cafe had to settle for second, as Lucius Vorenus cruised under the wire in 1:56.3.
 
This is the third win in the last four starts for the Crawford Farms-owned gelding, who is sired by Father Patrick and trained by Nick Surick. He won the Garden State trot for colts & geldings in his Freehold debut on October 26, then added a win and a runner-up in the first two legs of the series. He's now earned $109,655 in his career; $74,375 of that total has come in his last four races.
 
Live racing continues at Freehold on Saturday, with a scheduled first post time of 12:30 PM EST.
