Just Make Believe (Kadabra) parlayed a pocket ride to victory to prevail in the $17,000 Open Trot for the first time at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

Stephane Bouchard piloted the four year old trotter for the Kellogg Racing Stables and trainer Jackie Rousse. The veteran reinsman worked out a two hole trip behind Just Like Lloyd (Mark Beckwith) and cruised up the passing lane to secure the Open score.

Just Make Believe, who had finished third in the feature on three occasions, scored at odds of 8-1, getting the best of Just Like Lloyd who held second while Justa Rebel (Jim Devaux) earned the show spot. The victory came in 1:56.2 for Just Make Believe whose sixth win of the season came over a tracked labeled "good" following a day of off and on rain in the Spa City.

Live racing continues on Saturday night with first post time set for 6:45pm.
