Shabalabadingdong closed in the stretch to win the $25,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes Green Acres Championship for three-year-old pacing fillies in 1:56.4 today at Freehold Raceway.

The daughter of Western Ideal was rough-gaited going into the first turn on the half-mile Freehold oval and settled in last place in the four-horse field. With Steve Smith driving, Shabalabadingdong made a first over move to the lead at the half-mile mark, but it wasn't until the stretch that she caught up to the pace-setting Kiss Me Too (by Red River Hanover). The winning margin was a half length.

It was the seventh victory in 20 starts this year for the Erv Miller-trained filly, owned by the Shim Racing Stable of Northbrook, Illinois. The $12,500 winner's share of the purse boosted her 2011 purses earnings to $77,286 and career winnings to $78,486.

Kiss Me Too, driven by Jim Pantaleano for trainer Amy Haley and VIP Internet Stable of Piscataway, New Jersey, set the early fractions of :27.4, :57.1 and 1:26.4. LA Shark Hanover (by Cams Card Shark) finished third and My Red Hot Mama (by Red River Hanover) was fourth.
