Electrofire () became the fourth different horse to win the Open Pace in four weeks at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.
piloted the -trained pacer who was taking his first crack at the $17,000 feature at the Spa.
The seven year old pacer flashed quite a bit of gate speed and captured control in the early stages of the Open. Electrofire never let up and had plenty left in the tank for a 1:54.3 victory. Mystical Valentine () held on for second while Trigger Finger ( ) earned the show spot.
Nobody hit the pick five for the third consecutive night at Saratoga so there will be a carryover on Sunday afternoon of $3,060. First post time for the matinee card is 12:45pm.
