Settlemoir went coast to coast in the Saturday (June 10) feature at Saratoga Casino Hotel.

In his local debut last week, the Rene Allard-trained Settlemoir finished second in the $12,500 Winners Over and subsequently was the 8-5 betting favourite this week as he looked to wire the feature field.

Wally Hennessey sat behind the four-year-old son of Western Ideal as he clicked off a first quarter of 27 seconds flat. Following an effective breather in quarter two that led to a half in :56.3, Settlemoir wound up having just enough left to hold off the late bid by pocket-sitter Panocchio (Gerry Mattison), who had to settle for second. Bet You (Stephane Bouchard) earned the show spot. Settlemoir, who stopped the timer in 1:52.4 for his fourth win of the season, prevailed in just his second start following the claim by Allard at Yonkers Raceway in May.

Allard co-owns the winner with Kapildeo Singh, Earl Hill Jr., and VIP Internet Stable LLC.

Live racing continues on Sunday afternoon with a matinee first post set for 12:15 p.m.
