Cash Me Out (Cash Hall) overcame post position eight to prevail on Sunday afternoon in the final feature of the season at Saratoga Casino Hotel. The $16,050 Winners Over for trotters was the feature on the matinee card and the Kyle Spagnola-trained Cash Me Out was one of a few participants that were dropping out of the Open Trot. Driver Phil Fluet forwardly placed the classy seven year old trotter who wound up mid-pack in the early going before moving first over on the race’s favorite Wings Of Royalty (Shawn Gray). Cash Me Out grinded his way alongside the leader and those two did battle throughout the final half mile before Cash Me Out got the better of that rival to spring the Fluet’s mild upset at odds of 5-1. Wings Of Royalty was the runner-up while Karets (Bruce Aldrich Jr) earned the show spot. Cash Me Out’s victory, that came in 1:57.2, was his sixth of the season to go with a dozen second-place finishes and eight thirds en route to over $142,000 in earnings. For his career, Cash Me Out has now compiled more than $975,000, inching ever closer to the million dollar mark. The feature winner paid $12.20 to win on Sunday and led an exacta and triple that returned $34.20 and $194, respectively.
The 2018 racing season has come to an end at Saratoga with action set to resume in 2019 on Sunday February 17th.
