Freehold Raceway hosted the SBOANJ-sponsored New Jersey Futurity on Saturday afternoon in addition to a leg of the New Jersey Standardbred Development Fund.

The non-betting $22,500 New Jersey Futurity for two-year-old trotters was won by the Ron Burke trainee Cheap Tricks. No Drama Please finished second. Joe Bongiorno steered the trotting colt to victory in 2:04.3.

This was the first-lifetime win for the son of Trixton, who has earned $42,612 for his owners Burke Racing Stable LLC, Phillip Collura, Jandt Silva Purnel & Libb and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

The first leg of the NJSDF for three-year-old filly trotters took place in the third race. The odds-on favourite Chaperess nosed out the competition for trainer Trond Smedshammer.

Driven by George Brennan, Chaperess inched past the leader in the stretch to stop the clock in 1:59.3. Diamondstone US finished second, with Michando coming in third.

The daughter of Chapter Seven earned her seventh-lifetime win and $78,898 for her owner Purple Haze Stables LLC.

Freehold resumes racing Saturday, October 6, with the SBOANJ-sponsored Home Grown Pace for two-year-olds. Post time is 12:30 p.m.
