YONKERS, NY, Monday, December 4, 2017— When five wagering harness racing favorites in a Pick 5 sequence all go down, one of two things happen…

  1. It’s going to carry over, or
  2. It’s going to pay very well.

It was the latter for one lucky bettor, taking down a five-figure Yonkers Raceway payday Monday night (Dec. 4th).

Buoyed by a carryover of a bit more than $2,000, there was just over $11,000 of fresh money sent through the windows. Thus, after new-coin takeout, the races 7 through 11 winning combination of

2 - Bold and Brassy (Jordan Stratton, $5.60)

2 - Twin B Speedo (Stratton, $23.60)

4 - Warrawee Sunshine (Brian Sears, $5.10)  

3 - Lindythefourteenth (Jason Bartlett, $20.20)

6 - Hail Damage Blues (Bartlett, $24)

returned $10,341.25 for that lone correct half-a-buck wager. Ironically, in the last leg, 13-10 choice Juxta Cowgirl (Dan Dube) was snapped at the wire.

Had she won, it would have resulted in a double carryover, though we’re guessing the lady/gentleman who cashed would not have seen the irony.
