Vernon Downs invader Southwind Falcon has made his presence felt at Saratoga Casino Hotel over the last few weeks, and on Wednesday afternoon (Sept. 11), the three-year-old son of Conway Hall prevailed for the third consecutive start, taking one of three $9,000 co-featured events.

Southwind Falcon, trained and driven by Ron Harp, took a big jump up in company into the event for New York-sired trotters, yet once again came from well off the pace as he made a backstretch blitz heading to three-quarters before circling the field to prevail in 1:58.1. Southwind Falcon’s seventh victory of the year came in mild upset fashion as he paid $10.20 to win.

The other co-features were won by Okay (Conway Hall), who upset at odds of 11-1 for trainer-driver Claude Huckabone Jr., and Lucky June Bug (Lucky Chucky), who made good as his race’s odds-on favourite to extend his win streak to five. Frank Coppola Jr. piloted the Chip Zombick-trained three-year-old to his 1:57.2 Wednesday score, which was the fastest among the co-feature winners.

Live racing continues on Thursday afternoon (Sept. 12) at Saratoga with a 12 noon first post.
