>Saracuda, cleverly driven by David Myers, overcame a starting spot in the second tier to win one of a trio featured trots on the Thursday night card at Scioto Downs in 2:01. The four-year-old mare is trained and owned by Charles Lee, Jr. of Ohio.

Myers and his mare drew Post 10 and at the start got around the breaking Ticket To Broadway who had post one. Myers steered Saracuda into a fourth-place position as Dan Noble and Rose Run Natassia set the pace for the opening half. Myers moved Saracuda three-wide to take control with a quarter-mile remaining and she held off the late rush of favoured Making Green Lavec to win by a half-length. Rose Run Natassia held for third place.

Noble had better luck in the another trotting feature when he came from far off the pace to win with Bingo Queen in 2:00.1. Patrick Spryn owns and trains the sophomore daughter of CR Excalibur.

G S Ren set the tempo in the race for driver Kyle Ater, but Noble had his filly moving forward at the three-quarter pole and Bingo Queen kept moving forward to win by a length over favoured R E Shawn. Reverand Speed came from far back to claim the third check.

Favoured Air Stewart, trained by Danny Collins and driven by Tony Hall, took the third featured trot of the evening in 2:00.3.

Glorious Gator set the fractions and then yielded to Miley Jo. In the stretch, Air-Stewart sailed by to win by 2-1/2 lengths. Michael Lewis owns the son of Striking Sahbra.

Drivers Kyle Ater, Chris Page, Tony Hall, and Dan Noble each had a driving double on the Thursday program.
