Some of the top fillies & mare pacers at Freehold Raceway will square off on Friday (Jan. 10) in the Preferred Handicap pace.

A field of eight is scheduled to contest the $12,000 affair, which has been scheduled as the seventh of nine races on the Friday card.

The two outside horses, Shecouldbegood A and Clarebear, are the likely favourites. Shecouldbegood is coming off a head victory in a non-winners of $6,000 pace back on January 3. Three starts back, she won a winners-of handicap at Saratoga Casino Hotel. Jim Marohn Jr will be in the bike behind the Patti Harmon-trained mare from Post 7. Clarebear drew the post directly to her outside, coming off a third-place finish behind Shecouldbegood. In that race, Clarebear was parked out almost the whole way, but still closed strongly to miss by a neck. Vinny Ginsburg drives for trainer Mike Russo.

A plethora of recent upper-class Freehold winners will also face the gate for the tilt. Unspoken Promise won at the non-winners of $5,000 class two starts ago and will seek a rebound after having faded last time out. She's set to start from Post 2. Stonebridge Honey won two races in a row earlier in the meet, and will return Friday after a week's break. She'll be driven by Joe Bongiorno from Post 3.

Petal To The Metal won at the $5,000 level last time out, as she prevailed by a head in a driving finish. Stacy Chiodo will be in the bike from Post 4. Cruisinwithmybaby, who pulled off a 34-1 upset at the $6,000 level three starts ago, will return to Freehold off of two unplaced efforts at the Meadowlands Racetrack. She was assigned Post 5.

Dover Downs shipper Shes A Billionair and Flamboro Downs invader I Wish You Well complete the field.

The first race on Friday at Freehold is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. (EST).
