Godiva Seelster (Camluck) continued her sensational season on Friday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway. The harness racing five year old pacing mare recorded her second consecutive victory in the $18,000 Fillies and Mares Open behind a front-running effort covering the mile in 1:52.3.

Wally Hennessey powered Godiva Seelster out early and as several leavers settled in, Hennessey drove on making the lead in 27 seconds flat. Just like last week, the Hall of Fame reinsman got the mare a solid second quarter breather before stepping on the gas in the third quarter to the tune of 27.3. Godiva Seelster had to hold off the late challenge from rival So Nice (Austin Siegelman) who she bested in last week's Open. So Nice once again was the bridesmaid in the feature for distaff pacers, settling for second. Longshot Bell On Wheels (Stephane Bouchard) saved ground behind the top two throughout and finished third.

For the Dan Hennessey-trained Godiva Seeslter, it was win number ten on the season in nineteen starts. She paid $13.40 to win in the mild upset leading an exacta that returned $43.80 and a triple that came back $454.

Live racing continues on Saturday night at Saratoga with first post time set for 7:05pm.
