Feel The Power (Full Count) pulled off the upset in the evening's $8,000 featured race at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

The John Mongeon-trained trotter had been on the board in six of his previous seven starts heading into Wednesday's feature but was the race's biggest long shot while dismissed at odds of 20-1.

Frank Coppola Jr. sat patiently in the first half but then swung Feel The Power three wide heading to three quarters and the seven year old trotter had enough to get by the favorite V I P (Austin Siegelman) in the stretch and record the victory in 1:57.4. V I P held second while Zorgwijk Nova (Chris Long) earned the show spot.

For Feel The Power, it was win number four on the season.

Live racing continues on Thursday night when NY Sire Stakes come back to town. First post time is 7:05pm.
