The Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association of New Jersey trotting series for three-year-olds will conclude on Friday (Nov. 15) at Freehold Raceway with a $50,000 final.

The final, which has been carded as Race 3 on the 11-dash Friday program, has attracted a field of seven.

The headliners appear to have drawn to the inside. NJSS-SDF champion French Cafe, and SBOANJ second leg winner Lucius Vorenus.

French Cafe finished third in the first leg of the series two weeks ago, behind Evident Beauty. This time around, there's no Evident Beauty to deal with, and the Julie Miller-trained filly should find things easier. She's drawn Post 1 and will have Andy Miller at her controls.

Lucius Vorenus has done well since arriving at Freehold in late October, with two wins and a second-place finish to his credit. The Nick Surick-trained gelding will be driven by Jason Bartlett and will start from Post 3.

Trainer Lucas Wallin will send out a pair: Princess Deo and Sovereign Deo. Both of them broke stride in the second leg and will be looking to rebound Friday. Wallin will drive Princess Deo, while Joe Bongiorno has the call on Sovereign Deo. The will start from Post 2 and Post 7, respectively.

Dark As A Pocket will be looking to finally break through in the series, as she's finished second in each of the first two legs. She closed well last time out, but finished three-quarters of a length behind in second. The Linda Toscano-trained filly will be driven by Jim Marohn Jr from Post 6.

Marveloustrix, for trainer Karen Garland, and Warrior One, conditioned by Nik Drennan, round out the field.

The first race on Friday at Freehold will be at approximately 12:30 p.m. (EST).

The SBOANJ will also be holding its annual board meeting at Freehold on Nov. 15. The SBOANJ Board of Directors' election results will be announced at the meeting. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m., with a buffet to follow.
