YONKERS, NY, Friday, June 23, 2017 - Freeze Out (George Brennan, $13.60) did just that to her harness racing rivals Friday night (June 23rd), administering a beating in Yonkers Raceway's $55,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.

The field was pared to seven after Betabcool N was scratched-lame after the post parade.

Away an early second from became post position No. 2, Freeze Out found herself third after last week's victress, I Said Diamonds (Matt Kakaley), two-moved to the lead. Settled though early intervals of :27.1 and :55.3, Freeze Out challenged and conquered down the backside the second time.

She ground down 'Diamonds' well before a 1:23.3 three-quarters, slapping a half-dozen length on the lasses in and out of the final turn. The final margin was a wrapped-up three lengths in life-best 1:52. Jewel Lehigh A (Dan Dube) did get into second, with Lispatty (Mark MacDonald) third. Sell a Bit N (Jordan Stratton) and Hidden Land (Brian Sears) rounded out the payees, while the 9-10 fave I Said Diamonds walked home sixth.

For fifth choice Freeze Out, a 4-year-old daughter of American Ideal co-owned by (trainer) Ricky and Sean Bucci, it was her eighth win in 16 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $199, the triple returned $991 and the superfecta paid $2,347.

A friendly reminder from Yonkers Raceway that Saturday evening’s (June 24th) Pick 5 wager starts with a carryover of $3,660.17.  

The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager comprising races 7 through 11 during every racing card. It has no consolation payoff, meaning if no one selects all five winners (as was the case Friday night), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
