Charmed Life (Majestic Son) cruised to victory in the Sunday feature at Saratoga Casino Hotel. The Rene Allard trainee was the public’s overwhelming favorite in the wagering as she made her second start of the season while coming off a win at Pocono Downs earlier in the month. Billy Dobson drove Charmed Life in the $14,500 Open Trot and moved her out to the early lead, a lead she would never relinquish. The 1-5 favorite coasted to victory in 1:55.1, the fastest mile for any trotter thus far at the Spa this year. Cash Me Out (Jimmy Devaux), already a two-time Open winner this season, had to settle for second on Sunday while longshot Lucid Thoughts (Shawn Gray) earned the show spot. The seven year old Charmed Life, who has career earnings of over $1 million, is now two-for-two in 2017.
Live racing resumes on Thursday with a 4:00pm first post time.
