Racey Rach N & Chris Long

Racey Rach N (A Rocknroll Dance) continued her utter domination at Saratoga Casino Hotel when on Monday she rattled off her incredible eleventh consecutive victory. The New Zealand invader has gone eleven-for-eleven since coming to the U.S. in the summertime. On Monday, the Lisa Zabielski trainee cruised to victory in her division of the Bunny Lake Pacing Series as her race’s 1-9 betting favorite one again.

Racey Rach N never had an anxious moment in recording her eleventh straight win, stopping the timer in 1:56.1 in her $12,500 division of the second leg of the Bunny Lake Pace. Chris Long sat behind the five year old mare who has been 1-9 odds in six consecutive starts and will be the big favorite in the series final coming up in a couple weeks. Racey Rach N is co-owned by trainer Lisa Zabielski and Kim Zabielski.

The other division of leg two of the series went the way of another Zabeilski trainee as Doyoukissfirstdate (American Ideal) got the pocket ride behind her race’s favorite before shaking loose late in the passing lane. Long piloted both series’ winners for Zabielski as Doyoukissfirstdate recorded her seventh victory of the 2022 campaign.

A fourth-place finisher in leg one, Doyoukissfirstdate went a long way towards punching her ticket towards the series final behind a Monday score that came in 1:58. The five year old distaffer is owned by Lisa Zabielski in partnership with Mark Salerno of Felton, DE. Doyoukissfirst date paid $6.40 to win as the second-choice in the wagering in her division of the 2nd annual Bunny Lake Pace.

Live racing resumes on Saturday evening at Saratoga with a first post time set for 5pm.
