After failing to convert at odds-on last week, Tony Alagna trainees Odds On Sarasota and Caviart Heather both seek redemption on Saturday (Sept. 4) in the second leg of their New Jersey Sire Stakes-Standardbred Development Fund series for three-year-old pacing fillies at Freehold Raceway.

Caviart Heather drew post position four in her division, which is scheduled as the third race on the program. She has some stiff competition, including Git Go, who won her division of the first leg last week, and Thundra, who finished a length behind Git Go. Jason Bartlett will be in the sulky behind Caviart Heather.

In the second division, Odds On Sarasota drew the inside post position in the field of seven, which will be the fifth race on the card. Feeling Sweet, who upset her stablemate last week, is drawn to Odds On Sarasota's direct outside, and once again looks like a serious win contender.

The card also features the first division of the NJSS-SDF for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings. A field of seven will line up, with JK Lucky Charms, for Brett Pelling, the likely favourite. He won a division of the Stallion Series at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono last out, going the mile in 1:50.4. That race is scheduled as the seventh, with a post time of about 2:30 p.m.

The first of 13 races at Freehold this Saturday will be at 12:30 p.m. Eastern.
