Tropical Storm Bi (Yankee Glide) set a lifetime mark winning the Winners Over trot in 1:55 last week. On Wednesday night, the Tony Ciuffetelli-trained trotter was dismissed at odds of 5-1 as he looked to repeat with Jimmy Devaux in the sulky. Devaux blasted Tropical Storm Bi off the car as the five year old flashed some uncharacteristic early speed. Fending off a few challengers along the way, Tropical Storm Bi stopped the timer in 1:57 to record his second of back-to-back jacks in the $12,500 feature. Mugshots Bro (Bruce Aldrich Jr) sat the pocket and finished second while longshot Silent Pine (Bruce Cooper) earned the show spot. Tropical Storm Bi returned $12.20 to win in his second consecutive victory. The win was one of four on the night for Devaux who is in the midst of a big month at the Spa. Aldrich piloted five winners on the Wednesday card.
Live racing resumes on Friday evening with a first post time set for 7:05pm.
