Let's Go Higher (Cole Muffler) matched the all-time track record for aged pacing mares at Saratoga Casino and Raceway on Sunday afternoon.

The defending Filly and Mare Pacer of the Year at the Spa, Let's Go Higher, parlayed her pocket ride to victory on a warm spring day in the $17,000 Fillies and Mares Open.

Shawn Gray piloted the Heidi Rohr-trained mare and sat patiently as frontrunner Godiva Seelster (Wally Hennessey) set sizzling fractions. After two scratches, the Open for distaff pacers was comprised of just five mares and Let's Go Higher wound up besting her rivals in 1:52.1, a time that matched the track record for aged pacing mares. The mark was set by Don't Blame Her in July of 2012.

Let's Go Higher was the 6-5 betting favorite in the Sunday feature as she recorded her second victory in the local Open this season.

Live racing resumes on Thursday afternoon at Saratoga with a first post time of 6:45pm.
