Gotalottacredit (Credit Winner) lasted on the lead in the feature for New York sired trotters on Friday night at Saratoga Casino Hotel. When the favorite broke at the start, Gotalottacredit took advantage and moved out to the front end in the $8,030 feature contested over a sloppy track. Mark Beckwith piloted the Dave Dewhurst-trained trotter and asked the 7-1 longshot for all he had turning for home as fellow longshot Kandy Krush (Claude Huckabone Jr) closed in. Gotalottacredit held on to prevail in 2:00.4 for his third win of the season while Kandy Krush had to settle for second. Starlingmoon (Jim Devaux) earned the show spot. Gotalottacredit completed a driving hat trick for Mark Beckwith who has been on a tear of late.
Live racing continues on Saturday at the Spa with a 6:45pm first post.
