“MOZART” INSTALLED AS 7-5 FAVORITE IN CHARLES SMITH FINAL

MANALAPAN, NJ – September 15, 2015 – Southwind Mozart, one of a trio of entrants from the barn of trainer Ake Svanstedt, has been installed as the 7-5 favorite in the $50,500 Charles I. Smith Final for three-year-old trotting colts on Thursday, September 17, 2015 at Freehold Raceway.

The Smith and the $35,000 Harold Dancer for two-year-old colts are both restricted to New Jersey-sired trotters and are sponsored by the Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association of New Jersey. The Smith will also be contested on Thursday at 12:10 p.m., prior to the betting card.

Svanstedt trainees Southwind Mozart [Muscle Hill], Natural Kemp [Muscles Yankee] and Crescent Fashion [Muscle Hill] are separate betting interests as are a pair of Ray Schnittker trainees, Switchblade Hall [Muscles Yankee] and Broken Record [Muscles Yankee]. Also entered is the Noel Daley protégé Mountain Top [Muscle Hill].

Southwind Mozart’s performance in the $500,000 Yonkers Trot [third across the wire but placed second] in his last start on September 5 helped to elevate his status. He has now finished first or second in five of 12 starts this year and has a career bankroll of $200,540 for the Wolfgang A Stable Inc. of Vero Beach, FL.

Carded as the third race, the Charles I. Smith’s field of six, from the rail out with driver and morning line odds: Mountain Top, George Brennan, 4-1; Southwind Mozart, Daniel Dube, 7-5; Natural Kemp, Lucas Wallin, 7-1; Crescent Fashion, Scott Zeron, 5-2; Switchblade Hall, Steve Smith, 30-1 and Broken Record, Ray Schnittker, 6t-1.

The Smith stakes record of 1:55.4 was set by Flex The Muscle [Muscles Yankee] in 2010.

The four-horse Harold Dancer Trot features, from the rail out, Steed with Daniel Dube at the lines for trainer Richard Johnson; Inukchuk Chuck with trainer Julie Miller driving; Stayin Strong, also a Julie Miller trainee with Eric Abbatiello in the sulky, and Luv At First Site handled by Kyle DiBenedetto for trainer Ron Coyne Jr. Steed is by Muscle Hill with the other three by Muscles Yankee.

The stakes record of 1:59 for the Harold Dancer was established by Chapter Seven in 2010.
