Ticket To Glide equaled the Freehold track record and Cinematic Hanover was placed first in two elimination divisions of the Helen Smith Friday afternoon.

With Cat Manzi in the bike, Ticket To Glide swept past Motivational and George Brennan and scored a 1 1/2-length victory in 1:56.1, equaling the track record for 3-year-old trotting fillies set by Glide About in 2003. Laughing Louder and Trond Smedshammer were third and Solveig, with Jimmy Takter up, was fourth and advanced to the final.

In the second elimination Cinematic Hanover and Mike Lachance were placed first after Malvictorian and Smedshammer impeded the former's progress in the lane. Finishing third and fourth in the 1:59.3 mile were Take The Plunge (Jeff Gregory) and Victory Treasure (Steve Smith).

In two New Jersey Sire Stakes for 2-year-old pacing fillies on the Friday afternoon card, Western Starr (Western Ideal) won in 1:58.2 for Brennan and Public Life (Life Sign) won for Manzi in 1:58.4.
