JK Patriot completed a training double for Sam Schillaci in the $7,490 featured pacing race on Thursday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

Stephane Bouchard sat behind JK Patriot (Bettor's Delight) as he brushed to lead past the opening quarter and didn't look back before stopping the timer in 1:56.

Earlier in the night, Bouchard piloted the Schillaci-trained Khan Blue Chip to a career best score of 1:56.1.

Both JK Patriot and Khan Blue Chip had been squaring off against some of the track's top young horses in the Gary Kamal Memorial Pacing Series in recent weeks. On Thursday, they comprised two-thirds of the driving triple for Bouchard on the night.

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