Bruce Aldrich Jr. was the star of the Thursday harness racing program at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

Aldrich scored six wins on the twilight race card highlighted by the third consecutive victory for pacer Romeo Lover (Western Paradise).

Trainer Don Sherman acquired the four year old three weeks ago and has now gone three-for-three with him.

Romeo Lover, the race's 1-9 favorite on Thursday, wound up getting parked the mile but withstood the wide journey to prevail in 1:57.2.

Aldrich completed his grand slam early in the card by scoring wins in three consecutive races before going on to win from post eight with claiming trotter Princess Crown (Elegant Man) and with pacer Whata Bizness (Sportsmaster) in the finale.

Aldrich vaulted into second in the driver standings after beginning the day four back of Billy Dobson as they chase leading driver Frank Coppola Jr.

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