Dions Prayer (Like A Prayer) set a lifetime mark in Thursday’s feature at Saratoga Casino Hotel. Phil Fluet moved Dions Prayer out to the early lead in the $9,300 feature for New York Sired Trotters and the Andy Byler trainee powered away to win by more than five lengths in a career best 1:57.2. The race’s 8-5 betting favorite on Thursday, Dions Prayer recorded her third win in ten seasonal tries. Deadhead Royalty (Don Sherman) closed for second while Kinda Naughty (John Stark Jr.) earned the show spot. It was one of two wins on the day for driver Phil Fluet who piloted his Mo Titos Blue Chip (Crazed) to victory on the afternoon card.
Live racing continues on Friday evening with a first post time of 6:45pm.
