Dial Or Nodial drew off to a 6-1/2 length victory, setting a stakes record of 1:53.4, in the $85,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes for 2-year-old pacing colts and geldings on Sept. 20 at Freehold Raceway.
 
Owned and bred by Arlene and Jules Siegel of New Hope, Pa., the Jim Campbell trainee swept the New Jersey Sire Stakes Finals, adding the Freehold final to the victory he had in the $175,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes Final at the Meadowlands on July 10.

The 1:53.4 clocking erased the 1:54.1 stakes record established by Genuwine (Cam’s Card Shark), set in 2007.

Dial Or Nodial, driven by Dave Palone, posted his fifth win in six career starts in the featured fourth race. His only loss was a fourth place finish in the Battle of Freehold, on Sept. 1.

The son of Western Ideal--Smart Dialing has now banked $179,305.  He returned $2.60 and $2.10. There was no show wagering.

McArdles Star (McArdle) was second and paid $4.80. 

Dial Or Nodial’s entrymate, Fireintheshark (Cam’s Card Shark), finished 7-1/4 lengths back, in third.

Genuwine, whose 2-year-old record was eclipsed by Dial Or Nodial, also reached the winner’s circle on Saturday in the eighth race, a New Jersey Sire Stakes round two division for 3-year-old pacing colts and geldings. Genuwine paced his mile in 1:52.1.  Meant To Be Me (McArdle) won the first of the two divisions, in 1:54.4.
