Bell I No - Turned his form around with a smart win at Saratoga

Bell I No (Rock N Roll Heaven) chose a good time to put in a career performance as the Bert Belanger-trainee prevailed in the $28,600 Gary Kamal Memorial Pacing Series Final on Saturday night at the harness racing meeting at Saratoga.

The three year old pacer was the last horse to qualify for the Series Final after securing just a third and a sixth place finish in the two $7,500 legs.

On Saturday night, Bell I No raced like anything but a longshot as he moved first over on the favored First Delight (Bruce Aldrich Jr) and raced evenly with that one for a quarter of a mile before powering past in the final 1/16.

Bell I No, who was driven by Phil Fluet, stopped the timer in a lifetime best 1:54 in a race that had a purse just a couple hundred dollars less than he had made in his young career coming into the Series Final.

Montera (Frank Coppola Jr) came into the Final on a five race win streak but had to settle for second on Saturday night while First Delight held on for third.

Bell I No returned $20.20 to win and led an exacta and triple that paid $105 and $295, respectively.

Live racing continues on Sunday afternoon with a first post time of 12:15pm.
