Spreester scored a season's best 1:53.2 win in a NYSS for 3-year-old pacing fillies on Saturday at Saratoga Casino & Raceway.
Spreester continued her terrific stakes season behind the 1:53.2 seasonal best victory on Saturday night. The fastest winner of the three “big time” Sire Stakes races was Major Dancer (Art Major). Making her NY debut, the Casie Coleman-trained pacer came charging hard late before drawing away to win in 1:53.1 with Hall of Famer Wally Hennessey in the sulky.

 

The upset of the three stakes races came when Ken Doll J (Bettor’s Delight) survived a first-over journey to prevail in 1:55.2 with Jimmy Whittemore in the bike. Ken Doll J was dismissed at odds of 9-1 for her first win of 2014. Sire Stakes action returns to the Spa on Wednesday evening when three year old trotting fillies take center stage.
