Stephane Bouchard piloted Jokes Jet to victory

Harness racing driver Stephane Bouchard swept the two divisions of the Gary Kamal Memorial Pacing Series on Friday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway. 

Bouchard piloted both Jokes Jet (Jeremes Jet) and Jojo Jove (Village Jove) to wire-to-wire wins in the $7,500 per division Late Closer Series. 

Jeremes Jet became the series' only repeat winner as she went coast to coast in 1:57 at odds of 1-5. 

The three year old Geoff Howles-trained filly will likely head into next weekend's Final as the favorite. 

Jojo Jove came up just a neck shy of prevailing in last week's leg one but would not be denied while on the engine on Friday night. 

Bouchard piloted Jojo Jove to a lifetime mark of 1:57.1 for trainer Dave Byer.

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