SOUTHWIND HOPE CAPTURES $40,000 MARION DANCER; GA FINAL TO MARION MILLIONAIR

MANALAPAN, NJ – October 9, 2015 – On a sunny, fall day, Southwind Hope was the clear-cut winner of the $40,000 Marion Dancer for two-year-old trotting fillies on Friday, October 9, 2015 at Freehold Raceway.

A week ago, the Muscle Hill –Honey Pie filly broke stride at the start of the New Jersey Sire Stakes - Green Acres Final on a sloppy track and finished last.


Southwind Hope


Southwind Hope, driven by Steve Smith and trained by Julie Miller, trotted the mile in 2:01.2 on a fast track, finishing a length and a half ahead of Casino Cutie It [Muscles Yankee]. It was 16 lengths to Heal The World [Muscle Hill] in third.

Southwind Hope improved her record to three wins, one second and two thirds from nine starts and lifted her earnings to $35,600 for the partnership of the Andy Miller Stable of Millstone Township, NJ; Little E LLC of New York, NY, and Lawrence Dumain of Pine Bush, NY. She was bred by Southwind Farms of Pennington, NJ.
