Muscle Beachboy (Somebeachsomewhere) became the fifth horse to win the Open Pace in five seasonal Opens at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

The Tracy Brainard-trained pacer went out to the early lead and had to withstand sizzling fractions on a chilly Saturday night before having plenty left in the stretch.

Dan Cappello Jr piloted Muscle Beachboy to the 1:54.2, a win time that matched the fastest of the young season at the Spa. Spinarama (Austin Siegelman) finished second in the $18,190 feature while Village Jackson (Stephane Bouchard) earned the show spot. Muscle Beachboy, the race’s morning line favorite, returned $8.40 to win.
