Calvin B & Brian Cross 

Calvin B (Bettor’s Delight) pulled off the mild upset in the $7,000 featured race at Saratoga Casino and Raceway on Thursday night. The John Cross-trained four year old has been a consistent factor in his starts this season, hitting the board in 14 of 22 heading into Thursday’s race but only had recorded one victory. Coming from last in a six horse field, Calvin B paced past all of his rivals in the second half of the mile for Brian Cross before hitting the line first in 1:56.4, a seasonal best. Despite the fact that it was just a six horse field following two scratches, Calvin B returned a hefty $29.00 to win in Thursday’s featured race.

Live racing continues on Friday night with a first post time set for 6:45pm.
