Howd Ya Like That (Howd That Feel) survived pressure from the top two favorites in her co-featured $9,000 race for New York sired trotters on Thursday afternoon at Saratoga Casino Hotel. Brian Cross piloted the four year old mare who drew the rail for Thursday’s tilt that saw her go off at odds of 4-1. The race’s favorite Missus Mia Wallace (Wally Hennessey) sat the pocket throughout as Howd Ya Like That carved out the fractions and ended up as the runner-up after taking her shot at the winner in the stretch. The second choice in the betting was Yonkers invader TT Conway (Jay Randall) who wound up first-over on Howd Ya Like That before fading to a third place defeat on Thursday. Howd Ya Like That recorded her third win of the season for owner-trainer Laurie Tranowicz as she went coast-to-coast in 1:57.3 in the “Winners of 2 but not more than 5” races lifetime trot. Longshot Mr Gerrity (RC Royalty) went wire-to-wire in the other $9,000 co-feature on Thursday as Saratoga Hall of Fame driver Kim Crawford guided the Guy Roemer trainee to a career-best 1:58 victory while dismissed at odds of 9-1.
Live racing continues on Friday night at Saratoga with a 6:45pm first post.
