Shneonucrzydiamnd turned in a gem of a performance on Saturday (January 25) at Freehold Raceway, taking the Preferred Handicap pace by two lengths in an excellent time.

He hadn't raced since a non-winners of $10,000 pace score at The Meadowlands on November 16, but bettors were undeterred and made him the even money favourite. Driver Vinny Ginsburg initially took back from post position seven, dropping him to sixth place in the early stages. Before the half, Ginsburg pulled the trigger and sent him first-over, taking it to early leader Machiavelli. Turning for home, Ginsburg's gelding had gone by, and pulled away for the win. The time, over a sloppy track that saw heavy rain earlier in the day, was an impressive 1:53.2.

Shneonucrzydiamnd is owned by Let It Ride Stables and Dana Parham, and trained by Ross Croghan. He paid $4 to win, $3.20 to place, and $3.20 to show.

The Preferred win was one of three for Ginsburg on the Saturday card. He won the fifth race with Redneck Fortune ($7), and the seventh with Jackamino ($3.20).

Live harness racing resumes at Freehold on Thursday, beginning at 12:30 p.m.
