Muncie parlayed his pocket ride to victory on Thursday night in the $6,000 featured pace at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

The four-year-old pacer had finished second in three consecutive local starts in April but had yet to record a win this year before going out of town to Plainridge Race Course and registering a 1:55 victory last week.

On Thursday night, reinsman Shawn Gray once again positioned Muncie (Charley Barley) In The Pocket and this week they would not be denied. The win in 1:57.1 was the first locally for the Alicia Gray-trainee. Cumulus Hanover (Jim Devaux) cut the mile but had to settle for second after being reeled in by Muncie while Tijuana Party (Stephane Bouchard) closed for third. Muncie returned $10.00 to win in the mild upset.
