Golden Tricks Takes Garden State Trot

Golden Tricks may not have made it to Woodbine Mohawk Park this weekend, but Freehold suited her just fine.

The Ake Svanstedt-trained filly dominated the Garden State Trot for three-year-old fillies on Friday, winning by 6-3/4 lengths in 1:56.2. Leaving from post position four in the field of six, driver Andy Miller tucked her in the three-hole early, rating behind Starita and Sexy Wow. At the five-eighths point, Miller pulled with Golden Tricks, and she boldly accelerated to the lead. Starita had no response, and Golden Tricks rolled away to victory. Her final quarter was a sharp :28.1.

This is the seventh career win for the Brixton Medical Inc.-owned filly, who has now bankrolled more than $260,000. She finished seventh in the Breeders Crown elimination last weekend, and won the Hudson at Yonkers Raceway earlier in the year.

Starita, Marveloustrix, Princess Deo, Sexy Wow, and Taja Mahala completed the order of finish.

Live harness racing racing continues on Saturday at Freehold, with a first post time of 12:30 p.m. EDT. The 12-race program is headlined by the Garden State Trot for three-year-old colts and geldings.
