The defending Aged Pacer of the Year at Saratoga Bet On Roulette () made his first trip of the season to the winner's circle on Saturday night.
Hall of Famerpiloted the eight-year-old pacer for trainer and took advantage of the inside post position to make an easy lead. Bet On Roulette never had an anxious moment and cruised to a wire-to-wire win in 1:54.2 in the $17,000 Open Pace. Electrofire (Bruce Aldrich Jr) sat the pocket and finished second behind the 3-5 betting favorite while D Terminata ( ) followed the top two throughout to end up third.
Bet On Roulette became the eighth different horse to win the eight Open Pace contests thus far this year at the Spa.
