Tiktok Roy Wins Co-Featured Trot at Saratoga Casino Hotel on Monday

Tiktok Roy (Swan In A Million) was a resounding winner in a $9,500 co-featured trotting race contested on Monday at Saratoga Casino Hotel. The Monica Krist trainee has been lightly raced over the course of the last year and a half but has found his stride in recent weeks. Tiktok Roy cruised to a six-length romp earlier this month and did so in a speedy 1:57.2.

Following a break in his previous start, Tiktok Roy was the 8-5 second-choice in the wagering on Monday while stepping up in class from the level of his first win of the season. On Monday, the four year old made an easy lead with Billy Dobson driving for owner Rick Dobson of Howell, MI. With the race’s favorite having made a break early in the mile, Tiktok Roy never faced a legitimate challenge in going coast-to-coast in a win time that matched that of his first seasonal victory, scoring in 1:57.2 once again as an open-length winner.

The other co-featured trot went the way of longshot Ruby Roundhouse (You Know You) who came from off the pace to win in 1:58.4 at odds of 28-1. Jay Randall piloted Ruby Roundhouse to the win for owners Nick Segel and Claude Bourgois and trainer Barry Segel.

Live racing continues on Tuesday with a matinee set to kick off at noon. There is a $4,177 carryover in the Pick Five pool to the Pick Five scheduled to start in race one on Tuesday.
