If you were handicapping the Early Pick Three at Saratoga Casino Hotel on Wednesday (Oct. 30) and just couldn’t pry yourself from driver Jimmy Deveau, rest assured that your wagering instinct was on point.

Devaux continued his terrific 2019 campaign at Saratoga Casino Hotel on Wednesday afternoon by sweeping the Early Pick Three with The Magic Number ($7.90), Entranced ($5.80) and Pantheon Hanover ($4.40).

Pantheon Hanover, a ‘Spa’ veteran pacer, dropped down to the bottom level condition on Wednesday after having endured a bit of a cold streak. The seven-year-old went coast to coast for a pretty decisive win in 1:55.1 on Wednesday in what was his sixth victory of the season for trainer Dave Dewhurst.

The Magic Number set a lifetime mark on Wednesday afternoon when he parlayed his pocket trip to a career-best 1:58.3 score for Devaux, who was driving for trainer Vern Beachy.

Entranced also went start to finish on the engine, as the Amanda Kelley trainee made good at odds of 9-5.

Devaux is entrenched in the second spot in the local driver standings for 2019, well behind leading driver Billy Dobson, but comfortably ahead of his next closest pursuer, Jay Randall.

Live racing at Saratoga will continue on Thursday afternoon starting at 12 noon. There will be a $5,000 guaranteed Pick Five pool. The Pick Five will start in the matinee’s first race.
