ROLAND N ROCK, SMART ZONE & LL JACKPOT WIN NJSS-GA PACES

MANALAPAN, NJ – September 12, 2015 – Pacers were on display in New Jersey Sire Stakes - Green Acres action on Saturday, September 12, 2015 at Freehold Raceway.

Winning efforts were turned in by Roland N Rock and Smart Zone, both three-year-olds by Rocknroll Hanover, and LL Jackpot, a two-year-old daughter of Philos Hanover. Each division carried a $7,000 purse.

Roland N Rock [$2.10], driven by Daniel Dube and trained by Rob Harmon, was the odds-on pick and delivered a length and a half victory over Artsmah [Western Ideal] in the third race. Edward Tech [Rocknroll Hanover] was third by a length in three-quarters. The mile was timed in 1:54.3.


Roland N Rock


The Perretti-bred gelding took the lead at the quarter and was on top at every pole. Owned by Duane and Connie Roland of Grinnell, IA, Roland N Rock has six wins and two seconds in 10 starts this year and has won 20 of 24 career outings for a bankroll now over $160,000.

In the three-year-old fillies division, the sixth race, longshot Smart Zone [$29] was a length winner over Lissan [Rocknroll Hanover]. Favorite Strut My Stuff [Western Ideal] cut the mile and faded to third by a length and three-quarters.

Smart Zone, driven by Eric Abbatiello, paced the mile in 1:56.2.


Smart Zone


Bred by Winbak Farm, the filly is trained by Matias Ruiz for Roslyn Delgaudio of Philadelphia, PA. It was her third win with two seconds in 16 starts this year. She has seven wins, four seconds and two thirds in 28 career starts for a bankroll topping $80,000.

LL Jackpot, co-bred and owned by his trainer, Ivan Llopez, made it two straight in Green Acres competition for two-year-old filly pacers in a non-wagering event.


LL Jackpot


She finished a half-length ahead of On Top Ofthe Rock and two and a quarter ahead of Rocknroll Palz in third. The runners up are both by Rocknroll Hanover.

Jim Marshall III guided LL Jackpot in her 2:02 mile.

LL Jackpot has two wins in six starts and earnings of $13,900 for Llopez and Louis T. Ferdinandi’s LTF Racing Stable of Clark, NJ.
