Kid PK (Wearable Art) continued his hot streak on Thursday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

The Jim Doherty Jr-trained harness racing trotter missed all of 2013 but has come out strong in his comeback season. After recording two wins early in the summer, Kid PK moved into the winners of 2 but not more than 4 races lifetime class at Saratoga in August and has been on a tear ever since.

The four year old pacer was a runner up in each of his first three tries in that class including a pair of starts in which he closed in final quarters of 27 seconds. Kid PK then scored front running victories in two straight heading into Thursday night's try in the $7,490 pacing event.

Driver Stephane Bouchard was content to sit the pocket to Rock N Joe (Billy Dobson) who was the runner up to him last week. It was deja  vu for Kid PK who prevailed in 1:55 for the second consecutive Thursday night and was followed at the wire by Rock N Joe once again. Alero Blue Chip (Shawn Gray) completed the trifecta. Kid PK now has five wins in twelve starts in 2014.

Live racing continues on Friday night at Saratoga with a first post time of 6:45pm.
