On Sunday, March 19, Cash Me Out, by Cash Hall, made his return to Saratoga Casino Hotel a winning one.
The red-hot Kyle Spagnola stable sent its prized six-year-old out to compete in the $12,000 Open Trot on Sunday off a qualifier two weeks ago and a scratch last week.
Driver Jimmy Devaux was aggressive at the start with Cash Me Out who moved out to the lead in a first quarter of 28 seconds flat.
Despite putting up a quick half of 57.3, Cash Me Out had plenty left for the final lap and drew away from his five rivals before stopping the timer in 1:55.3, the fastest trotting mile of the year thus far at Saratoga.
Twisted Pretzel (driven by Mark Beckwith) was the runner-up in his first crack at the Open this year, while longshot Lucid Thoughts (Frank Coppola Jr.) earned the show spot.
Cash Me Out was the 9-5 second choice in the betting and led an exacta and triple that paid $36.40 and $174, respectively.
Cash Me Out, who is owned by Traylor Racing LLC, was a nominee for Trotter of the Year last year after a $196,000+ season by way of 11 wins and 12 seconds.
Live racing resumes on Thursday afternoon with a 12:15 p.m. first post.
