On Sunday, December 15 at Saratoga Casino Hotel, Cash Me Out finished up what will likely be an award-winning season.

The eight-year-old went coast-to-coast to win his ninth local Open Trot of the campaign. Driver Brett Crawford powered the classy Kyle Spagnola trainee out to the early lead, a lead that the millionaire trotter would never give up.

Despite posting a sizzling first quarter of 27 seconds, the classy Cash Me Out never relinquished his lead and held on to prevail in 1:58.2 in the season’s final feature on closing day of the 2019 meet.

Gemologist (who was driven by Jordan Derue) was the runner-up for the second consecutive week in the $18,000 Open for trotters, while Cartier Volo (Frank Coppola Jr.) earned the show spot.

Cash Me Out’s win was the 50th of his 200-start career. He is owned by the Traylor Racing Stable of Ballston Spa, NY. The Spagnola trainee is the clear favourite for the local Trotter of the Year award, which will be announced at the annual holiday banquet scheduled for December 21.

In Sunday’s win, Cash Me Out was the 6-5 betting favourite and led an exacta and triple that paid $21.60 and $143.50, respectively.

Saratoga’s 2020 racing season will kick off in February.
