AJ Corbelli came from off the pace to win the $50,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes Green Acres Division Final for two-year-old pacing colts and geldings in 1:56 Saturday at Freehold Raceway.

In the final contest of the 2009 NJSS racing season, driver George Brennan took the son of Rocknroll Hanover three-wide at the three-quarter pole from seventh to overtake the pacesetters at the wire. He won by a length over Mighty Art (sired by Artsplace), who had taken the lead earlier and held off Ponda River (Red River Hanover) by a long nose for the runner-up spot.

It was a career-best clocking for AJ Corbelli in scoring his third victory in nine starts for the Anatolia Racing Stables and trainer Roland Mallar. His career earnings rose to $46,722 with the $25,000 winner’s share of the purse.

The son Red River Hanover, driven by Andy Miller and trained by Erv Miller, had the lead at every call and paced the mile in 1:54.4. Darling Angel, a daughter of Artsplace, was second with Riding The Rapids, a Red River Hanover colt, in third by four lengths.
