Recent News (Riverboat King) took a big time class drop for his Saturday start at Saratoga and the Heidi Rohr-trained pacer outclosed his competition to record his first win of the season.

Recent News, who got away sixth and had to move four wide heading to the three quarter pole, had something left for the stretch run and drew away late to win the $11,000 conditional-optional claimer. Recent News, whose victory came in 1:56.2, returned $8.90 to win as he bested Lets Rock Together (Billy Dobson) and Theseyesrcrying (Jim Devaux). The win was one of two on the card for Gray and Rohr who also teamed up for a victory with pacer Tireman (The Panderosa).

Live racing continues on Sunday afternoon with a matinee starting at 12:45pm.
