NEW JERSEY CLASSIC WINNER SWEET ROCK AMONG THREE-YEAR-OLD PACERS FACING OFF IN $42,000 NEW JERSE

MANALAPAN, NJ – September 5, 2014 – A well-balanced field of eight three-year-old pacing colts and geldings, including New Jersey Classic winner Sweet Rock, will face-off in the $42,000 New Jersey Futurity, the ninth race on Saturday, September 6, 2014 at Freehold Raceway.

Sweet Rock rallied for a nose victory in the $225,000 Anthony Abbatiello New Jersey Classic on August 2 at the Meadowlands in a lifetime best of 1:49.4. In his last start, the $54,072 Geers at Tioga Downs on August 17, he was third.

This year, he has two wins, four seconds and two thirds from 15 starts, banking $142,133 toward a career total of $167,391 for the Delaware-based ownership of Legacy Racing, RA Hazzard and GP Calloway.

Art History [Western Ideal] was given the slight 3-1 morning line nod from the rail with Hall of Famer David Miller driving.

Art History, trained by Steve Elliott, has two wins and three thirds in seven starts this year, banking $17,840 for Kenneth Klein of Amonk, NY and the Old Block Stables of New York City.
