 Jokes Jet (Jereme's Jet) was the fastest winner in the three divisions of the Gary Kamal Memorial Pacing Series on Friday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

The Geoff Howles-trained filly is having a big year and prevailed for the fifth time in eight local starts this season with reinsman Stephane Bouchard in the sulky.

Starting from the outside post in her $7,500 division of the first leg of the Late Closer Series, Jokes Jet went wire-to-wire on Friday to match her lifetime mark in 1:55.3 while upsetting at odds of 11-1.

The victory was one of four on the night for Bouchard. The other winners in leg one of the series were longshot Villiam Tell and odds-on favorite Rock N Joe who were both piloted by leading driver Billy Dobson.

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