Saratoga Springs, NY-- Brett "the Teenage Wonder" Beckwith has a good harness racing future ahead of him.

The 16-year old youngster won a Billings race tonight at Saratoga Raceway, which is his second amateur driving victory having won a NAADA trot earlier this season at Yonkers Raceway.

Up behind Dark Pool from the seven hole, Beckwith sent his charge out in search of a good position and fell into the three -hole as "Yankee Joe" Lee and The Royal Harry showed to the way by the first quarter in a swift :28.3.

Lee tried to slow the pace once he gained command but still The Royal Harry led his competition by the halfway point in :56.2.

Up the backside Beckwith moved Dark Pool out to challenge and they rambled alongside the leader and were a head to the good as they approached the sweeping Saratoga turn. After putting away Lee's trotter, Dark Pool braced for Tony "The Capo" Verruso's Winter Mint, who had the better part of a two-hole journey throughout. But in the lane there was no catching Dark Pool as he crossed the finish line a length in front of Winter Mint.

Despite of going off-stride after the start Revrac Harbour, driven by Tony "Shifty" Ciuffetelli, Jr., rallied for the show dough
