Pan From Nantucket (No Pan Intended) scored an impressive victory in the Open Pace at Saratoga Casino and Raceway on Saturday night.

The Jose Godinez-trained pacer has been a threat in the Yonkers Open this year and not only started from the outside post on Saturday but was outside the race's odds-on favorite Sparky Mark.

Pan From Nantucket moved aggressively first over and squared off with the public choice who was on the front end before wearing him down in the stretch and recording the victory in the $17,000 feature. Sand Summerfield (Billy Dobson) closed for second while Sparky Mark (Jim Morrill Jr) had to settle for third for the second consecutive week.

Pan From Nantucket, whose win came in 1:57, was piloted by Bruce Aldrich Jr.who scored four wins on the Saturday card, three of the victories coming while driving for trainer Jose Godinez.

Live racing continues on Sunday afternoon at Saratoga with a carryover of nearly $2,000 in the pick five pool. First post time is set for 12:45pm.
