Mister Skitter (Western Terror) brought a three race win streak into Saturday night's Open Pace at Saratoga Casino Hotel.

The Don Sherman trainee had a start or two in the Open under his belt before returning to the $16,050 feature on Saturday.

Jimmy Devaux piloted Mister Skitter to three consecutive wins heading into the Open try and for the fourth consecutive week moved the young pacer out to the early lead.

Mister Skitter put up all the fractions and kicked away from his rivals late in the mile before stopping the timer in 1:52.1, matching his lifetime mark. Spinarama (Austin Siegelman) sat the pocket to the feature winner and won the photo for place while Panocchio (Gerry Mattison) earned the show spot.

Mister Skitter returned $10.00 to win and led an exacta and triple that paid $47.60 and $315, respectively. The win also put the four year old pacer over the $100,000 mark in career earnings in just his 52nd lifetime start, fifteen of which have been wins.

Live racing continues on Sunday afternoon at Saratoga with a matinee beginning at 12:15pm.
