Dial A Chic (Prayer I Am) had trouble staying flat last year in several attempts at qualifying. This year, the three year old trotter has put it all together since the addition of trotting hopples and the Vern Beachy trainee moved his career record to three-for-three on Thursday afternoon at Saratoga Casino Hotel. Dial A Chic broke his maiden in his lifetime debut at the Spa on July 1st and wasted no time repeating as he trotted to a first over score at Goshen just two days later in the Excelsior Series B. On Thursday, Dial A Chic was the race’s 3-5 favorite as driver Billy Dobson brushed him up heading to the half in the $8,000 race for New York Sired trotters. Once Dial A Chic got to the top, there was no looking back as the young trotter cruised out to win by five and a half lengths in a career best 1:58.3 to move his record to three-for-three.
Live racing continues on Friday evening at Saratoga with first post time set for 6:45pm.
