East Rutherford, NJ --- Under unseasonably warm mid-50 degree temperatures on Friday (Jan. 12) 10 amateur trotters went to post in the second race on the Meadowlands card.

There were only three leavers once the gate opened and everyone found their spot as these trotters completed the first turn. That is where Drama Free, with trainer Rob Harmon in the bike, took the lead through a fast :27.2 quarter over the sloppy surface. He maintained that lead until the three-quarter stanza.

That is where the challenger Rockin Redford, with Roy Marohn holding the lines, took over the lead after going first-over and carried that through the stretch en route to a four-length victory. Getting up for second was pocket-sitter Real DJ Hanover, with Sarah Svanstedt doing the driving. Uriel, with Annie Stoebe in the sulky, got up for third.

Marohn, who is a regular on the GSY circuit, didn’t get any respect at the windows and his backers cashed in for a $2 win bet to the tune of $25.20. The mile for this event was timed in 1:57.1. This 6-year-old gelding by SJ’s Caviar is owned and trained by Mark Ford.      

Next week, the GSY series continues on the Friday night card with the first post at 6:35 p,m.
