Moveoutofmyway (Dontgetinmyway) won his first local Open Pace on Saturday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

After finishing fourth and fifth in his two previous tries at the Spa, the Brittany Robertson-trained Moveoutofmyway drew post position three in Saturday's $17,000 Open.

Ending up with a first over journey, the five year old pacer fought gamely to take the lead turning for home before being confronted by the race's favorite Ronny Bugatti (Austin Siegelman) who was trying to go last to first for his second straight feature score.

Moveoutofmyway held strong in the stretch and denied Ronny Bugatti the repeat by hitting the wire first in 1:52.3. Stephane Bouchard piloted the winner who returned $8.00 to win.

Ronny Bugatti had to settle for second while Trigger Finger (Jim Devaux) earned the show spot.

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