The Jim Morrill Jr- Kevin Efimetz combination continued their unheard of streak of winning on Sunday afternoon at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

Coming into the matinee card on a six race win streak as a combo, Morrill and Efitmetz again dominated the day. They teamed up five times on the afternoon and recorded four wins and a second.

When Stage It Right was defeated in the $17,000 Fillies and Mare Open, the potent driver-trainer combo had won ten consecutive starts together. Stage It Right was good enough to win but came up second best as rival Little Santamonica (Little Steven) made the early lead and never looked back. Jimmy Devaux piloted the winner of the feature for the second consecutive day as he also scored the victory behind Whogoesfirst in the Saturday night Open. Since the start of the 2014 racing season last week, Morrill and Efimetz have teamed up nineteen times and recorded an incredible fourteen wins and five seconds.

Live racing resumes on Thursday night at Saratoga with a first post time set for 6:45pm.
