Breewood Brier was a neck winner over One Nineteen on Friday.

The 6-year-old mare scored via her patented first over journey on Friday, a trip she has utilized to win four consecutive races. Phil Fluet trains and drives the mare that has started out the season three-for-three despite stepping up from the $5,000 claimers to the $10,000 level. Her Friday victory came in 2:00.3. Breewood Brier was claimed from her Friday race.

Open trotter Upfront Billy (Billy Dobson) extended his own win streak to three with a closing victory in the evening’s $20,000 feature, a win that came in 1:56.3.

Live racing continues on Saturday night at Saratoga with a first post of 6:45 p.m.
