Slugfest (Conway Hall) won the Sunday Open Trot at the harness racing meeting at Saratoga for the fourth time this season.
 
The defending Trotter of the Year at the Spa sat the pocket in this week’s feature, riding the coattails of Mikey Hanover (Mark Beckwith) who was putting up sizzling fractions on the front end.
 
Slugfest and Jay Randall sat patiently through three quarters in 1:24.4 before evacuating the pocket around the final turn and cruising past Mikey Hanover to win in 1:54.4.
 
It was the fastest time for any trotter thus far in 2015 at Saratoga.
 
The fourth Open Trot victory this season for Slugfest came at odds of 4-5.
 
Randall drove the winner for trainer Maureen Salino.
 
Mikey Hanover was the runner up to Slugfest for the second straight week while Photo Mass (Frank Coppola Jr) earned the show spot in the $18,000 Open. 
 
Live racing resumes on Thursday at Saratoga with a first post time set for 4:00pm.
