Slugfest prevailed for the third consecutive week in the Friday night Open Trot at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

The Maureen Salino-trained trotter has started out his season on a tear. After finishing second in his first start back in March, Slugfest (Conway Hall) has rattled off three straight wins on the front end with driver Jay Randall in the sulky.

This week, the local trotting star had to overcome post position eight on Friday but marched out to the early lead in :28.4 and never looked back before stopping the timer in 158.1. Pocket sitter Obrigado (Kim Crawford) finished second while Just Make Believe (Stephane Bouchard) earned the show spot. Slugfest returned $8.00 to win as he completed his hat trick.
