Panpero Firpo (No Pan Intended) recorded his first victory of the season on Thursday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

The Jackie Rousse-trained four-year-old recently added lasix and has shown significant improvement since doing so.

Coming off of a fast second place finish in his last start, Panpero Firpo moved first over on the race's favorite in the $8,000 conditional pace feature on Thursday and overpowered his rivals before stopping the timer in 1:54.4.

Stephane Bouchard, who recently hit the 8,000 career win plateau, piloted Panpero Firpo to the convincing victory. Lucky Mctrucky (Jordan Derue) charged hard late to be second while favored Aled Hanover (Shawn Gray) held on for third.
