Trainer Angus MacDonald swept the co-features with Some Royalty and Cash N Chrome on Thursday afternoon at Saratoga Casino Hotel.

The veteran conditioner is based at Vernon Downs, but spends much of the year competing at Saratoga.

MacDonald’s stable star thus far this season has been Some Royalty (RC Royalty), and on Thursday the four-year-old mare won for the sixth consecutive time. Prevailing in her final start of 2016, Some Royalty moved her seasonal record to five-for-five on Thursday as she recorded another win in the $8,030 co-feature for New York sired trotters. Leading driver Billy Dobson piloted Some Royalty to the 1:59.1 victory.

MacDonald’s Cash N Chrome (Cash Hall) tracked down the favourite in his division of the co-featured trot with Kim Crawford in the sulky. Dobson was looking to sweep the co-features as he sat behind the favoured Trotamundo who was seeking his fourth win of the year but Cash N Chrome reeled that one in the final strides to prevail in 2:00.3 on a cold, windy day in the Spa City on Thursday to complete the sweep for the MacDonald Stable.

Live racing continues on Friday evening at Saratoga with a 6:45 p.m. first post.
