-- John Piassek, for Freehold Raceway

FREEHOLD, NJ -- September 13, 2019 -- Play Trix on Me improved his career mark to five-for-five at Freehold Raceway on Friday (Sept. 13), easily taking the second division of the second leg of the New Jersey Sire Stakes for 2-year-old male trotters.

After sweeping his way through the Sire Stakes series at The Meadowlands over the summer, Play Trix On Me was sent off as the 1-5 favorite here.

He went to the lead early, setting comfortable fractions of :30.1 and 1:00.2. Heading up the backstretch for the final time, Barley, winner of the first leg of the series last week, gave him a stiff first-over challenge. However, Play Trix On Me never wilted, holding him off down the stretch to win by a half-length. The winner covered the mile in 2:00.3.

Play Trix On Me is owned by Renee Spahr, trained by Linda Toscano, and driven by Jordan Stratton. He paid $2.40 to win.

Earlier in the day, the first division of the leg was contested as a non-betting race. Kyrie Deo prevailed, recovering from a break at the three-quarters to win going away. Hes owned by Harmony Oaks Racing Stable, David J. Miller, and James Crawford IV, trained by John Butenschoen, and driven by Atlee Bender. He stopped the clock in 2:04.4.

Live racing continues at Freehold on Saturday, with a first post time of 12:30 p.m. (EDT). The card is headlined by the Renaissance Pace for 2-year-old male pacers, as well as the NJSS final for 2-year-old filly pacers.
