Winning never gets old, and seemingly neither does the nine-year-old Kaitlyn Rae, who just keeps on winning. On Wednesday evening (Oct. 17) at Batavia Downs, she scored her third consecutive victory in the $9,900 Fillies and Mares Open Handicap pace following the same formula from the last two weeks.

Kaitlyn Rae (Ray Fisher Jr.) got the lead past the eighth pole and set the pace from there out. After getting to the half in :57.1, favourite Roll With Faith (Kevin Cummings) rolled up on the outside to challenge for the lead. The two hooked up for the remainder of the mile, hitting three-quarters in 1:25.3 before turning for home to decide the winner. Although Roll With Faith paced all the way to the wire, Kaitlyn Rae never gave up the lead and won by a length in 1:55.1.

It was the 12th win of 2018 for Kaitlyn Rae ($8.40), who now has $61,175 made this year. Riley Asher-Stalbaum both owns and trains the winner.

In the $8,800 Open II for fillies and mares, Machin Marley (Kevin Cummings) led every step of the way en route to her seventh win of the year, timed in 1:57. Thatsideofthefence LLC co-owns the winner with trainer John Mungillo.

When racing resumes at Batavia Downs on Friday afternoon (Oct. 19), there will be a carryover of $703 and a guaranteed $2,000 pool in the early Pick-5 wager as part of the United States Trotting Association Strategic Wagering program. Please note an early post time for Friday of 4:45 p.m.
