Racy Roxy A Wins Filly & Mare Open Pace at Saratoga Tuesday

Racy Roxy A (Mr Feelgood) won the Saratoga Casino Hotel Open for the first time on Tuesday afternoon. Trainer Rob Harmon had a double on the card led by her A who was a wrapped-up winner at the wire. The even-money betting favorite in the $15,000 Fillies and Mares Open, Racy Roxy A cruised out to the early lead and remained untested through a first half in 57.3.

Driver Jay Randall asked the favorite for more heading towards the three-quarter pole and Racy Roxy A paced away from her rivals to build an insurmountable lead before reporting home a measured winner of a length in a mile clocked in a career-best 1:54.4. Probert (Brett Beckwith), last week’s Open winner, came up second-best on Tuesday while Magical Maya A (Larry Stalbaum), the runner-up in the season’s first feature for mares, closed to finish third.

Racy Roxy A, who paid $4.20 to win, was one of two winners on the card for Rob Harmon and one of three for Randall as that tandem combined for a victory with young pacing mare Two Star Magic who set a lifetime mark in prevailing for the second consecutive week. Racy Roxy A is owned by Mike Casalino Jr of Freehold, NJ.

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