Electrofire (Electric Stena) became the fourth different horse to win the Open Pace in four weeks at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

Shawn Gray piloted the Jennifer Lappe-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 (Jason Ryan) held on for second while Trigger Finger (Jim Devaux) 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.
