SS Poseidon [Muscle Hill], coupled in the wagering with Firestop [Muscles Yankee], will leave from post one with Steve Smith driving for trainer Erv Miller. He has two wins, four seconds and a third in nine starts this year, banking $88,505 for Paymaq Racing of Long Grove, IL and Shim Racing LLC of Deerfield, IL.

The Ray Schnittker trained entry of Broken Record and Switchblade Hall, both sons of Muscles Yankee, are rated 7-5 in the morning line. Broken Record, who will be driven by Schnittker, drew post two while Jordan Stratton gets the call on Switchblade Hall, leaving from post five.

Co-featured on the Friday card is the $25,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes – Green Acres Final for two-year-old pacing fillies, the eighth race.

Seven fillies are scheduled to go postward with Smart Zone [Rocknroll Hanover] rated the 7-5 morning line favorite from post two.
