Bet On Roulette & Wally Hennessey

Last Saturday night, Bet On Roulette (Bettor’s Delight) put up the fastest mile of the year at Saratoga Casino and Raceway behind a wire-to-wire victory in 1:51.3. This week, it was back into the Open Pace for the Paul Kelley trainee and it was back to the front end as well. Wally Hennessey piloted the six year old pacer in the $17,000 Open and marched him out to the lead after starting from post five. Bet On Roulette never had an anxious moment on Saturday and recorded his second Open Pace score of the season. His win time of 1:52.2 wasn’t where it was last week when he scored last week but he was equally as impressive securing the Open victory. Ronny Bugatti (Austin Siegelman) closed for second while That Man Of Mine (Billy Dobson) finished third. Trainer Paul Kelley swept the two Opens this weekend as his Obrigado prevailed in Friday night’s Open Trot.

Live racing resumes on Tuesday night at Saratoga with first post time set for 7:05pm.
