Flyhawk Thriller dropped and popped while recording an upset in Tuesday night’s featured race at Saratoga Casino Hotel.

The Bert Belanger-trained trotter dropped out of the Open but drew post position seven in the $9,000 featured trot on Tuesday. Leading driver Stephane Bouchard sat back patiently with Flyhawk Thriller, who was dismissed at odds of 10-1, as fast fractions were being set during a hotly contested first half. Flyhawk Thriller came first over and overpowered the race’s favourite en route to opening up a big lead past three quarters. Drama Free (Jordan Derue) shook loose late but never got close to the son of Cash Hall who stopped the timer in 1:55.4. Drama Free was the runner up while Time To Quit (Brian Cross) completed the triple.

For Flyhawk Thriller, whose 1:54.2 win time set back in May still stands as the fastest for any trotter at Saratoga in 2016, it was win number four on the season. Flyhawk Thrill returned $22.00 to win.

Live racing continues on Wednesday night at the Spa with a first post time set for 7:05 p.m.
