Reasinforpleasin put in a career best effort of 1:58.1 en route to capturing Thursday’s co-feature at Saratoga Casino Hotel.

The Dave Spagnola trainee picked up second-over cover approaching the half in the $9,000 feature for New York sired trotters and charged hard in the stretch before stopping the timer in 1:58.1 to lower his lifetime mark.

Reasinforpleasin, a son of Conway Hall, enjoyed success as a freshman two years ago and also did well in 2016 as a sophomore despite having only started nine times.

On a scorching hot Thursday afternoon in the Spa city, the four-year-old trotter recorded his second win in seven seasonal tries with Frank Coppola, Jr. in the sulky. Scarey Karie (Phil Fluet) came on late to be the runner-up while longshot Thanks For Playin (Dan Cappello, Jr.) earned the show spot.

Steve La Belle’s Kinda Naughty (Conway Hall) prevailed in the other co-feature going coast-to-coast in 1:59 with Jimmy Devaux in the sulky.

Live racing continues on Friday night at Saratoga with a 6:45 p.m. first post.
