YONKERS, NY, Saturday, November 9, 2019--Former all-age harness racing track record-holder The Real One (Pat Lachance, $13.40) stuck his tongue out at the wire Saturday night (Nov. 9th), winning Yonkers Raceway's $42,000 Open Handicap Pace.

Third-over from assigned post position No. 4, The Real One was sixth--then fifth--when he bid in earnest. He snapped a first-over Dancin' Dragon (George Brennan) in 1:53, with Runrunjimmydunn N (Jordan Stratton) tiring to third after intervals of :26.4, :55.2 and 1:24.

It was Theartofconfusion A (Dan Dube) and 8-5 choice Jack's Legend N (Jason Bartlett) settling for the minors.

The latter, making a North American purse debut after four qualifiers, was caught third in turning for home before knifing through while pacing over rivals.

For fourth choice The Real One, a 9-year-old Mach Three gelding trained by his chauffeur for owner Helene Filion, it was his fifth win in 23 seasonal starts (career 52-for-205, $1,229,688). The exacta paid $54.50, the triple returned $129.50 and the superfecta paid $470.50.
