After only mustering a third-place finish last week, Lady MacBeth resumed her reign among New York-sired trotters at Saratoga Casino Hotel with a mild 6-1 upset in a $9,000 co-featured event on Wednesday afternoon (April 10).

With favourite Bonamassa (Brett Crawford) having things her own way while on the front end, Lady MacBeth sat patiently until getting her cue from trainer-driver Phil Fluet approaching the three-quarter pole. The four-year-old daughter of Deweycheatumnhowe trotted past her rivals and scored her fastest win of the season as she stopped the timer in 1:57.3, also earning the fastest win time among the afternoon’s three co-features. Bonamassa was the runner-up and has now finished first or second in five of her seven seasonal tries in the class.

Iamnotlefthanded also came from off the pace to prevail in his division of the co-features, scoring in 2:00.1 for his first victory of the season while pulling off a mild upset at odds of 5-1. The final of the $9,000 co-features on the matinee card was won by Tournament, who was the lone member of the trio of featured races to win as his race’s favourite and to win on the front end. The public’s 2-5 betting choice, Tournament held on to score in 1:59 for his second victory of the 2019 campaign with Jimmy Devaux in the sulky for trainer Dave Dewhurst.

Live racing continues on Thursday afternoon (April 11) with first post at 12 noon.
