Searchfortheshark (Four Starzzz Shark) parlayed her pocket ride to victory in the Wednesday (April 11) feature for pacing mares at harness racing's Saratoga Casino and Raceway. Live racing resumed at Saratoga on Wednesday after a three week hiatus and the action on the track picked up right where it left off.
Searchfortheshark (Jim Devaux) won exactly one month ago to the day at the Spa when she rode the pocket before scoring the win in a career best 1:56.
The Agostino Abbatiello trained five year old was up in class on Wednesday but powered past the raceâ€™s favorite in the stretch to secure her second score of the season, stopping the timer in 1:56.1.
Slomotion (Billy Dobson) held on to be the runner up while RD Blues (Stephane Bouchard) earned the show spot in the $7,500 feature for fillies and mares.
The win was one of two on the night for reinsman Jim Devaux.
Live racing continues on Thursday night at Saratoga with an eleven race program set to begin at 7:05pm.
