Iced Out made her return to the $6,500 conditional pacing level on Thursday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway and she made her way back to the winner's circle.

The Laura Mangiardi-trained mare rattled off three consecutive wins in the class in June but could muster up only a couple of third place finishes while up in class lately.

Driver Chris Long moved Iced Out (Western Ideal) to the lead but it took getting parked in a first quarter in 28.2 to get to the front. Once she got to the lead, the four year old mare would not look back and recorded a victory in 1:57.2, her sixth of the season.

Hathaway Anne (Stephane Bouchard) shook loose late and finished second while Shakin In My Shoes (Bruce Aldrich Jr) settled for third.

Live racing continues on Friday night when the track features Wally Hennessey Night, an evening dedicated to the Hall of Fame driver. First post time on Friday is 7:05pm.
