Tropical Storm Bi (Yankee Glide) set a lifetime mark winning the Winners Over trot in 1:55 last week at Saratoga Raceway. On Wednesday night, the Tony Ciuffetelli-trained trotter was dismissed at odds of 5-1 as he looked to repeat with harness racing driver Jimmy Devaux in the sulky. 

Devaux blasted Tropical Storm Bi off the car as the five year old flashed some uncharacteristic early speed.

Fending off a few challengers along the way, Tropical Storm Bi stopped the timer in 1:57 to record his second of back-to-back jacks in the $12,500 feature.

Mugshots Bro (Bruce Aldrich Jr) sat the pocket and finished second while longshot Silent Pine (Bruce Cooper) earned the show spot.

Tropical Storm Bi returned $12.20 to win in his second consecutive victory.

The win was one of four on the night for Devaux who is in the midst of a big month at the Spa.

Aldrich piloted five winners on the Wednesday card.

Live racing resumes on Friday evening with a first post time set for 7:05pm.
