Dressedforthedance prevailed convincingly in the Battle of Saratoga #1 series harness racing final on Friday night (October 19) at Saratoga. The Melissa Beckwith trained pacer swept her two legs of the series and wound up as the public's 4-5 favorite in the final. Dressedforthedance (Wally Hennessey) moved to the lead at the half and drew away late to record a 1:54.2 career best win in the $31,200 final for fillies and mares.

Shes Lovin It (Billy Dobson) held second while Mystical Terror (Stephane Bouchard) came on for third.
