Leg two of the SHHA Claiming Series for trotters took place on Friday night at Saratoga as horses competed for points towards next weekend's marathon final.

Donttellmywife (Malabar Man) jogged for the second consecutive week in the series as Bruce Aldrich Jr.put the 1-9 favorite on the lead in the early stages of the mile and a quarter long trot.

Donttellmywife cruised to a win of almost ten lengths in 2:30.2 for the longer distance.

Claimed out of leg one of the series by conditioner Andy Sardella, Donttellmywife won for the eleventh time in nineteen seasonal tries.

The series' favorite was claimed back on Friday night by trainer Melissa Beckwith who will send him out in next weekend's $10,000+ Final to be contested at a distance of a mile and a half.

Psyched (Jay Randall) won the other division of the second leg of the series after outclosing the favorite Stormont O My (Shawn Gray) in the stretch to prevail for his new connections.

Trainer Jody Weidman will bring Psyched into next weekend's series final as one of only four horses to record wins in the SHHA Claiming Series legs.

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