The 2017 racing season reached its conclusion on Sunday afternoon at Saratoga Casino Hotel. The final feature of the year was the $19,500 Open Trot which was won by Ulster (Glidemaster). The Amanda Facin trainee won his first Open last Sunday when he scored the mild upset at odds of 6-1 with Jay Randall in the sulky. Ulster repeated after enduring a first-over journey to prevail in 1:55.4. DW’s NY Yank (Bruce Aldrich Jr) was late on the scene to finish second while Dragin The Wagon (Phil Fluet) earned the show spot. Ulster returned $13.60 while pulling off his second consecutive mild upset in the trotting feature.
The 2017 live racing season has concluded with harness racing resuming on Sunday February 18th of 2018.
