After battling the entire month of June at Tioga Downs, BZ Glide returned to Buffalo Raceway on Friday night (July 4) and re-acquainted himself very quickly to his usual surroundings and posted a solid 1-3/4 length victory in the featured $10,500 Open Trot in 1:59.2 over the fast track.

BZ Glide, driven and owned by Mike Caprio, drew the eight post but was helped by two scratches (Force Nine and Absolutely Certain), which put him in the six spot. The five-year-old gelding began the first over journey just before the half-mile pole and took the lead from the pacesetting Fiorentina just past the three-quarter station. At the top of the stretch, BZ Glide (Yankee Glide-Bloomer Zoomer) had opened up a three-length lead and the only question left in the race was who was going to take the minor rewards? It was a mad scramble between the five remaining entrants with Jon Win (David McNeight III) taking the place position while Fiorentina (Kevin Cummings) held on for third.

The win was the second in eight starts this season for BZ Glide ($4.50), who is trained by Alana Caprio. The victory moved his 2014 earnings to $24,150 and lifetime bankroll to $73,750.

The action will resume at Buffalo Raceway on Saturday evening with 13 races scheduled to begin at 6:40 p.m.
