Whogoesfirst added his name to the long list of Open Pace winners at Saratoga Casino and Raceway this season with a hard charging score in Saturday's feature.

The Luann Case-trained five year old has raced at the Spa in the past but hasn't been in town in quite some time. He took advantage of a race filled with early speed on Saturday night and after a scramble in the opening quarter of 26.4 and first half in 56.1, Whogoesfirst (Cambest) and reinsman Jim Devaux slid out heading to three quarters and outclosed his rivals while stopping the timer in 1:54.

Released at odds of 6-1, Whogoesfirst hit the wire first for the just the second time this season. It's a Good Thing (Shawn Gray) was the runner up in the $16,050 Open while Duc Dorleans (Stephane Bouchard) finished third.

Live racing continues on Sunday afternoon with a matinee beginning at 12:15pm.
