Crazycat (Crazed) cruised to victory in Thursday’s co-featured race for New York Sired trotters at Saratoga Casino Hotel. The three year old trotter is co-owned by his driver Bruce Aldrich Jr. who moved the 2-5 favorite out to the early lead in the $9,950 trotting event and Crazycat took it from there. Making just his tenth career start, the Jose Godinez trainee cruised to victory in a lifetime best 1:57.4. The other co-feature saw longshot Fast N Loud (Conway Hall) pull off an upset in 1:59.2 as the four year old swooped the group at odds of 20-1 for driver Mark Beckwith. The win was one of three wins on the card for Beckwith who entered the day in third place in the local driver standings behind only Stephane Bouchard and Frank Coppola Jr.
Live racing continues on Friday evening at the Spa with a 6:45pm first post.
