Mister Skitter (Western Terror) moved up into the featured pace for the first time on Saturday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway. The Don Sherman trainee set a lifetime mark set last week when he went wire-to-wire in 1:52.1 with Austin Siegelman in the sulky.
This week, however, he moved up into the $13,000 Winners Over Pace which was the evening's feature. Mister Skitter sat the pocket to Southwind Terror (Mark Beckwith) and cruised past him in the stretch to record the win in 1:52.4.
For Mister Skitter, a nominee for Three Year Old Pacer of the Year at the track this season, it was victory number eight on the season. He paid $8.30 to win. The race's favorite Drunken Desire A (Bruce Aldrich Jr) came on to finish second and completed an exacta that came back $27.40 while Southwind Terror held on for third. The triple returned $93. The win was one of three on the night for reinsman Austin Siegelman.
Live racing continues on Sunday afternoon at Saratoga with a matinee beginning at 12:15pm.
