Freehold, NJ — On Saturday (Sept. 29) Freehold Raceway held the $59,885 Renaissance final for 2-year-old filly pacers.
The Nancy Johansson trainee JK American Beauty sat in the two hole until just past the half where she brushed past the leader and never looked back to stop the clock in 1:56.1.
This was the first lifetime win for the daughter of American Ideal, and boosted her earnings to $125,395 for 3 Brothers Stables.
Miss Raggedy Ann finished second with Surreality coming in third.
