Ulster took the $14,500 Open Trot at Saratoga Casino Hotel on Sunday, Sept. 16, going coast-to-coast at 7-1.

With regular reinsman Jay Randall at the controls, Ulster went for the lead early. After going untested in a first half trotted in :57.1, Ulster had plenty left for the final lap. The race’s 1-5 betting favourite and last week’s Open winner were both not involved early and it cost them late as the speed held in the Open. Ulster wired the field in 1:54.3, the fastest of his seven Open scores this season.

Longshot Judy The Beauty sat the pocket and finished second while Charmed Life came from last to finish third. Ulster, who was Randall’s third winner of the day, paid $16.00 in Sunday’s score and led an exacta and triple that came back a hefty $131.50 and $728, respectively.

Live racing resumes on Thursday, Sept. 20 at Saratoga with a first post time set for 12:15 p.m.
