With only a handful of race days left before horses celebrate another birthday on Jan. 1, several runners with Camden ties are closing out their 2014 campaigns with winning performances. Suzy Blue Light, a 3-year-old filly owned by the Elkstone Group LLC and given her start at Donna Freyer’s Custom Care Equine in Camden, made it back-to-back wins by taking a $33,300 allowance race at Penn National on Dec. 18. Trained by Rick Violette, who gave Clinton Potts a leg up, the daughter of Exchange Rate out of Silmaril made the 1 1/16-mile journey in a time of 1:46.76 to win by a healthy 4 ¼ lengths.
