Back From Vacation (Dream Vacation) recorded his second consecutive victory on Tuesday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

The Heidi Rohr-trained trotter finished third in his local debut a few weeks back but dominated his competition last week upon dropping into the $5,000 claiming level.

The six year old trotter coasted out to the early lead once again on Tuesday night and never had an anxious moment before drawing out to win in 1:58.4 with driver Bruce Aldrich Jr. in the sulky.

The win was one of two on the card for the Rohr-Aldrich tandem who also teamed up for a victory with heavily favored Teach Me To Bucky (Crazed) who prevailed in his local debut in the evening's opener.

Rohr currently sits second in the trainer standings just a few wins behind leading conditioner Jordan Derue while Aldrich is second in the driver standings albeit a long ways back from leading reinsman Billy Dobson. Aldrich piloted three winners on the Tuesday card.

Live racing continues on Wednesday night at Saratoga with a first post time of 7:05pm.
