Hotel Royale (Rc Royalty) handled her step up in class with relative ease on Thursday afternoon at Saratoga Casino Hotel.

The George Ducharme-trained three year old filly prevailed in the $9,950 co-feature for New York sired trotters as reinsman Frank Coppola Jr. marched the talented distaffer out to the early lead. Hotel Royale, who had a fourth place finish in her May start in the New York Sire Stakes, went coast to coast on Thursday before stopping the timer in 1:58, a time that matched her victory from last week in which she set a lifetime mark.

Since the addition of lasix, the three year old trotting filly has gone three-for-three at Saratoga, recording all of her wins in front-running fashion with Coppola in the sulky.

The other co-feature on Thursday was won by Prince Of Fame (Crazed) who cruised to a front-running score in 1:57 with Wally Hennessey in the bike.

Live racing continues on Friday night with a 6:45pm first post.
