SS POSEIDON WINS NJ FUTURITY; STRUT MY STUFF POSTS GREEN ACRES RECORD

MANALAPAN, NJ – October 10, 2014 – SS Poseidon, winner of the Harold Dancer Trot, added the $33,500 New Jersey Futurity to his list of stakes wins on Friday, October 10, 2014 at Freehold Raceway.

The Futurity, restricted to New Jersey-sired two-year-old trotters, is sponsored by the Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association of New Jersey.

SS Poseidon [Muscle Hill] was a two and a quarter-length winner over the filly Demons N Diamonds [Muscle Hill] in the open trot, carded as the third race. It was six lengths to Switchblade Hall [Muscles Yankee] in third.

Steve Smith guided SS Poseidon, who paid $4.20 to win, to his third win in 10 starts. The Erv Miller trainee has finished in-the-money in eight of those starts. In addition to the Harold Dancer at Freehold, he also won a division of the Reynolds Stakes at Tioga Downs.

The victory pushed the trotter’s earnings to $105,255 for Paymaq Racing of Long Grove, IL and Shim Racing LLC of Deerfield, IL.

In the co-featured $25,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes – Green Acres Final for two-year-old pacing fillies, the eighth race, Strut My Stuff was a half-length winner over the pacesetting Cheyenne Robin [Rocknroll Hanover] in a stakes record 1:55.3.

Lissan [Rocknroll Hanover] was third by a length and a quarter.

Strut My Stuff [$9.80], who captured the Lou Babic Filly in her prior start, extended her winning streak to four in the tenth start of her career.

Jack Baggitt Jr. drove the Ross Croghan-trained daughter of Western Ideal who is owned by the Let It Ride Stables of Boca Raton, FL and RBH Ventures Inc. of New York, NY. She has a bankroll of $52,620.

The clocking of 1:55.3 was a fifth of a second faster than the previous stakes record shared by Happy Dreamer [2007] and Cheyenne Robin [2013].
