Undercover Beauty (Crazed) prevailed in Monday’s feature at Saratoga Casino Hotel. The trotting mare completed a training double for conditioner Andy Gardner on the holiday matinee card as she came from off the pace to secure her first victory of the season. Undercover Beauty, who paid $15.80 to win while springing the mild upset, was driven to victory by Billy Dobson who followed up his opening day hat trick with another three win afternoon on Monday. The four year old mare Undercover Beauty stopped the timer in 1:58.2 in the matinee’s $8,025 feature for New York sired trotters. Dobson, who rattled off five consecutive driving titles at Saratoga from 2010-2014, is off to a strong start to the ’17 season with his six wins on opening weekend.
Live racing resumes on Thursday afternoon with a matinee beginning at 12:15pm.
