Classy veteran Silent Swing added to his already incredible lifetime earnings with a win in the Saturday feature at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

The Mark Ford trained pacer worked hard to get to the lead in a :26.3 sizzling opening quarter before yielding for a pocket ride behind the race's favorite Kelly's Noah.

Kelly's Noah (Dan Cappello Jr) held off Silent Swing in last week's open but on Saturday night, the classmaster would not be denied.

The ten year old veteran moved his career earnings to just shy of the $1.8 million mark with the victory in the $18,500 open.

Billy Dobson piloted Silent Swing to the open score which came in a sensational 1:51.3.

Kelly's Noah was a strong second while Life Up Front (Joe Bongiorno) earned the show spot in the six horse open.

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