Stirling Cadet & Frank Coppola

Stirling Cadet (Conway Hall) went coast to coast to capture Sunday’s Open Trot at Saratoga Casino Hotel. The five year old trotter continued a strong weekend for his connections as his trainer Jackie Rousse and driver Frank Coppola Jr. teamed up for a trio of Saturday scores at the Spa. Stirling Cadet marched out to an easy lead in Sunday’s $15,000 Open and never had an anxious moment en route to prevailing in the local feature for the first time this season. One of three 3-1 shot co-favorites in the featured trot, Stirling Cadet returned $8.10 to win in the race clocked in 1:54.3. On The Podium (Bruce Aldrich Jr) sat the pocket to the winner and held on for second while Crazy About Pat (Shawn Gray) came on for third. The exacta paid $77.50 while the triple came back $281.50. Stirling Cadet is owned by the Kellogg Racing Stables, LLC.

Live racing resumes on Thursday with a first post time set for 4:00pm.
