Bell On Wheels scored in the Fillies and Mares Open for the second consecutive Sunday afternoon at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

The winner of the Aged Pacing Mare of the Year award at the Spa last year, Bell On Wheels (Western Hanover) won her first feature of the 2014 season last week and drew the rail on Sunday while seeking to repeat in the $17,000 Open for distaff pacers.

Bruce Aldrich Jr.again sat behind the Harry Landy-trained mare as they sat the pocket behind rival Godiva Seelster (Wally Hennessey). Bell On Wheels flew late to reel in the top rival and stop the timer in 1:52.2, the fastest for a lady pacer at the track this year and just a fifth of a second off of the track record for aged pacing mares.

Godiva Seelster was the runner up on Sunday while Aint No Dollatable (Billy Dobson) finished third in the condensed five horse feature.

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