YONKERS, NY, Saturday, November 4, 2017- Harness racing favored Scott Rocks (Eric Goodell, $4.50) two-moved to happiness Saturday night (Nov. 4th), winning Yonkers Raceway's $50,000 Open Handicap Pace. In play from post position No. 5, Scott Rocks took an early-three hole as pole-sitting The Rev (Jason Bartlett) seated everyone. Not content with the way the chairs were laid out, Scott Rocks made the lead just at a :27.2 opening quarter-mile. After a :56.1 intermission, Gratian Hanover (Brian Sears) tried it first-up from fifth, only to be devoid of pace. That left the outer tier in the hooves of Orillia Joe (Brent Holland), who moved from third going toward the 1:24 three-quarters.. Scott Rocks owned a length lead into the lane, holding off 'Joe' by that same margin in 1:51.4. Third went to Bakersfield (Greg Merton), with The Rev and a returning Mossdale Conner N (Jordan Stratton) settling for the remainder. For Scott Rocks, a 7-year-old Rocknroll Hanover gelding co-owned by Northfork Racing Stable & Chuck Pompey and trained by Chris Oakes, it was his 10th win in 24 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $16.20, with the triple returning $148. Frank Drucker

YONKERS, NY, Friday, November 3, 2017 - A sluggish-early Mackenzie A (Jordan Stratton $5.70) was in hand late Friday night (Nov. 3rd), winning Yonkers Raceway's harness racing $50,000 filly and mare Open Handicap Pace. Away slowly from post position No. 4, the Matchmaker champ saw Call Me Queen Be (Mark MacDonald) make the lead around Betabcool N (Eric Goodell) before a 27-second opening quarter-mile. The latter then took over from the former, getting a :56.4 intermission and 1:25.3 three-quarters as She'sjustadelight N (Ron Cushing) tried it first-up from fifth. That move gave 'Mackenzie' a tow, though she was gapping it for much of the backside. Betabcool N maintained a short lead into the lane, but she was about done. Mackenzie A finally received the memo, edging past to win in 1:54.3. Mach it a Par (Jason Bartlett) raced behind the eventual winner from third-up, chasing her home to miss by three-quarters of a length. She'sjustadelight N, Call Me Queen Be and Lispatty (George Brennan) settled for the remainder, For Mackenzie A, a 5-year-old Down Under daughter of Rock N Roll Heaven co-owned by Harry Von Knoblauch Stables & Ellen Kinser and trained by Peter Tritton, it was her third win in 11 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $17.60, with the triple (three wagering choices in order) returning $55. Frank Drucker

YONKERS, NY, Tuesday, October 31, 2017- Halloween brought out the usual array of scary sights, but none quite as horrifying as the creature lurking in Yonkers Raceway's harness racing winner's circle. At first glance, the ghoulish figure appeared to be a better-looking version of bon vivant track photographer Mike Lizzi, though independent confirmation was unavailable. While the face was hideous, we're happy to report that no two- or four-legged creatures were harmed by gazing directly at it, and the 11-race program continued without incident. "I just wanted to get in the 'spirit' of the holiday," Lizzi, or his alter ego, said. A reminder that the Raceway's final Thursday card of the season takes place this week (Nov. 2nd), with a dozen races at the usual first post of 7:10 PM. The other four nights (Monday, Tuesday, Friday [except Nov. 24th] and Saturday [except Nov. 25th]) remain @ 7:10 PM, while Sunday matinees return Nov. 12th (post time for that card is 11:25 AM). Frank Drucker

YONKERS, NY, Sunday, October 29, 2017 -- Home'n Dry (Jason Bartlett, $8.50) was anything but Sunday afternoon (Oct. 29th), winning Yonkers Raceway's harness racing waterlogged $50,000 Open Handicap Trot. Away third from assigned post position No. 5, Home'n Dry did his bidding in a wind-swept deluge, but no problem. He watched as 19-10 favorite In Secret (George Brennan), remanded outside his six rivals, made the lead (:28.4, :57.1, 1:26.1). As he did in his prior effort, Home'n Dry vacated the three-hole, engaged the leader, then won going away. The margin here was 2½ lengths in a moist 1:55. In Secret was a safe second, with Tight Lines (Jeff Gregory), Centurion ATM (Dan Dube) and Sumatra (Eric Goodell) settling for the remainder. For third choice (again) Home'n Dry, a 5-year-old Credit Winner gelding owned by J L Sadowsky LLC and trained by Robert Bresnahan, it was his seventh win (third consecutive) in 18 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $49.60, with the triple returning $155.50. This scheduled edition of the 'New York, New York Double' went south when Belmont Park cancelled its last-day-of-meet program. The gimmick wager returns Sunday, Nov. 12th, with Aqueduct as the NYRA venue.. Note post time for Yonkers that afternoon is TBA (we promise to advise). A friendly reminder from Yonkers Raceway that Monday evening’s (Oct. 30th) Pick 5 wager starts with a carryover of $1,228.27. 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 Sunday afternoon), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program. Frank Drucker

YONKERS, NY, Saturday, October 28, 2017- Harness racing odds-on Dr.J Hanover (Brent Holland, $3.90) took it to the house (call) Saturday night (Oct. 28th), winning Yonkers Raceway's $50,000 Open Handicap Pace. Sent right down the road from assigned post position No. 4, Dr. J Hanover left around pole-sitting Thisjetsabookin' (Jason Bartlett), then had few issues (:27.4, :56.3, 1:23.4, 1:52). It was Bit of a Legend N (Jordan Stratton) settling third, then unable to author a second move down the backside before backtracking to the cones. Meanwhile, Dr. J Hanover opened a length-and-a-half lead into the lane, then held sway by a length. Bit of a Legend N did close inside for second, with a belated The Real One (Pat Lachance), Thisjetsabookin' and Scott Rocks (Eric Goodell) settling for the remainder. For Dr. J Hanover, a 4-year-old Somebeachsomewhere gelding co-owned by Brad Grant, Robert Leblanc, Steven Wienick & Irwin Samelman and trained by Tony Alagna, it was his fifth win in 21 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $16, with the triple returning $48.60. A remainder Yonkers races Sunday (Oct. 29th) with a 12-race, all-trot program and a High Noon first post. The remaining five Sunday matinees through the end of the season are post time TBA. Frank Drucker

YONKERS, NY, Friday, October 27, 2017 - Favored Lispatty with harness racing driver George Brennan in command was first to the lead and first to the wire Friday night (Oct. 27th), winning Yonkers Raceway's $50,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace. In play from 'inside' post position No. 5 (after winning 5-thru-8 draw), Lispatty stung Newborn Sassy (Tyler Buter), releasing that rivals after a :26.3 opening quarter-mile. 'Sassy' then found a :55.3 intermission before Mach it a Par (Jason Bartlett) tried it first-up from fourth in and out of the 1:23.4 three-quarters. Newborn Sassy put away that stubborn miss, but she was vulnerable. Lispatty ducked inside, then defeated a second-over Betabcool N (Eric Goodell) by a length in 1:52.4. Newborn Sassy, Mach it a Par and 44-1 rank outsider Certified Ideal (Brent Holland) settled for the remainder. For Lispatty, a 4-year-old daughter of McArdle owned by Gilberto Garcia-Owen and trained by Gilberto Garcia-Herrera, it was her sixth win in 24 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $35.60, with the triple returning $213. Lispatty Frank Drucker

YONKERS, NY, Friday, October 27, 2017-- Yonkers Raceway Sunday harness racing matinees return this weekend (Oct. 29th), with a dozen races and a first post of High Noon. It's the first of a half-dozen Sunday matinees between then and the end of the racing season (remaining five post times TBA). This Sunday's card offer a dozen races, with races 2 (post time 12:45 PM) through 8 (post time 3:45 PM) each featuring 10 'French-themed' trotters at the mile-and-a-quarter distance.

Program pages for this wager ($1 minimum, 18½ percent takeout) accompany this release.

Final Yonkers' post time Sunday is set for 5:05 PM. Frank Drucker

YONKERS, NY, Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - He was due. Hell, he was overdue. Urbana Bayama (Jordan Stratton, $34.60) snapped a 53-race losing streak Tuesday night (Oct. 24th), surviving a first-up Yonkers Raceway trip to win the sloppy, $8,000, eighth-race harness racing pace. Away fourth from post position No. 2, he defeated a pocketed Ransom Demand (Scott Zeron) by a nose in 1:56.2. Urbana Bayama came in 0-for-24 this season and winless since mid-January of 2016, losing his last 29 starts of last season. Paul Blumenfeld co-owned and trained 'Urbana,' a 7-year-old son of Jereme's Jet and Stratton's fourth of five consecutive wins during the 12-race program. Frank Drucker

YONKERS, NY, Saturday, October 21, 2017-- It wasn't quite heat racing, but Home'n Dry (Jason Bartlett, $10.80) won his second harness racing event in five nights Saturday (Oct. 21th), this one Yonkers Raceway's $50,000 Open Handicap Trot. The field of seven was essentially pared to five after Winds of Royalty (Steve Smith) and Consolidator (Eric Goodell) both jumped early. It was 13-10 choice Dayson (George Brennan) leaving over Murmur Hanover (Victor Kirby), the latter returning to town for first time in April of 2015 having won his last five races. Dayson, 23 days out between starts, led through seemingly cheap intervals of 28 seconds flat and :57.2. Home'n Dry, away third from post position No. 4, took out after the leader toward the soft 1:26.2 three-quarters. No resistance was offered, with Home'n Dry opening two lengths into the lane. He defeated the people's preference by a length-and-a-quarter in 1:55, with Murmur Hanover, Kanthaka (Brent Holland) and Dewycolorintheline (Jordan Stratton) rounding out the payees. For third choice Home'n Dry, a 5-year-old Credit Winner gelding owned by J L Sadowsky LLC and trained by Robert Bresnahan, it was his sixth win in 17 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $41.20, with the triple returning $145. No one took down Saturday night's Pick 5 wager, so Monday night's (Oct. 23rd) gimmick begins with a carryover of $2,460.60 (50-cent base wager, races 7 through 11). Frank Drucker

YONKERS, NY, Friday, October 20, 2017- H P Sissy (Greg Merton, $14.80) cleared down the backside Friday night (Oct. 20th), winning Yonkers Raceway's harness racing $50,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace. Away fourth from post position No. 2, H P Sissy saw outer entities Freakonomics (George Brennan) and slight 2-1 choice Newborn Sassy (Tyler Buter) leave with purpose. Locally-debuting Freakonomics worked around 'Sassy' before laying down early intervals of :27.1 and :57.4. HP Sissy then extricated herself from the cones, blowing right by Freakonomics before the 1:24.4 three-quarters. A second-up Diva's Image (Brent Holland) badly gapped the eventual winner, making the job of third-up Mach it a Par (Jason Bartlett) that much more difficult. HP Sissy opened 2¼ lengths off the final turn, then held a noticeably-drifting (she does that now) Mach it a Par at bay by a length-and-a-quarter n 1:54. Newborn Sassy, returning Matchmaker victress Mackenzie A (Jordan Stratton) and Betabcool N (Eric Goodell) rounded out the payees. Alas, there would be no 'Sissy'-'Sassy' exacta. For fourth choice HP Sissy, a 4-year-old daughter of Up the Credit owned by Claude Hamel and trained by Rene Allard, it was her ninth win in 21 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $76.50, the triple returned $208 and the superfecta paid $962 Frank Drucker

YONKERS, NY, Monday, October 16, 2017- Yonkers Raceway's Monday night (Oct. 16th) harness racing program saw any number of usual Saturday races 'carried over' in deference to the $3.3 million all-stakes card of this past weekend. Odds-on Always at My place (George Brennan, $3.60) barely lasted, winning the $50,000 Open Handicap Pace. From post position No. 6, he held sway (:27.1, 56.2, 1:23.3, 1:52.2), a desperate nose in front of pocketed Thisjetsabookin' (Jason Bartlett), with Techtor Hanover (Scott Zeron) arriving late in that photo. Theartofconfusion A (Eric Goodell) and Gratian Hanover (Joe Bongiorno) settled for the remainder. For repeating 'Always,' a 6-year-old Always a Virgin gelding co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke, Weaver Bruscemi, Larry Karr and Phil Collura, it was his ninth win in 23 seasonal starts (career 36-for-100). The exacta paid $23, with the triple returning $138.50. Frank Drucker

YONKERS, NY, Monday, October 16, 2017-A pair of Yonkers Raceway reminders regarding the upcoming live harness racing schedule. Sunday matinees return Oct. 29th, with a High Noon first post. It's the first of six Sundays between then and the end of the racing season (others post times TBA as of now). That first Sunday program has seven 'French trots,' races 2 through 8 during the card and the return of the 'New York, New York Double' (Belmont Park's closing day). Also note that Thursday live racing continues to Nov. 2nd, with the usual first post of 7:10 PM. Thursdays were originally scheduled to end this month, but a 'make-up' program was added when the Raceway cancelled this past Friday (Oct. 13th) to accommodate New York Day of Champions detention. Additional information regarding the Oct. 29th card shall be sent when available. Frank Drucker

YONKERS, NY, Saturday, October 14, 2017 -- They came, they saw, they conquered. Twice. Conducted for the first time in the afternoon, the first time alongside Yonkers International Trot @ Empire City Casino and the first time out of a local detention barn, Yonkers Raceway’s $1.8 New York Day of Champions Saturday afternoon (Oct. 14th) produced a pair of repeat statebred harness racing champions. Here's the skinny after eight, $225,000 sire stakes finals... Allerage Farm 3YO Filly Trot - From post position No. 3, odds-on Barn Bella (Jeff Gregory, $3.70) sat a comfy pocket to second choice Celebrity Ruth (Jason Bartlett) through intervals of :29.1, :58.4 and 1:27.2. Then, once chauffeur ask, date obliged. Barn Bella eased from the pocket, blowing by to beat 'Ruth' by 2½ lengths in 1:56.2. Maewegonow (Charlie Norris), Chapter Too (Eric Goodell) and Scarey Karie (Brian Sears) earned the minors. 'Bella,' a daughter of Conway Hall co-owned by (trainer) Steve & Nancy Pratt and Purple Haze Stables, has now 12 of her 16 seasonal starts (lifetime 18-for-24, $688,725, two NYSS titles). The gimmicks--$5.70 exacta, $17.60 triple and $91.50 superfecta. "She was super sharp today," Gregory said. "Much better than she was in her few starts." Blue Chip Farms 3YO Colt/Gelding Pace - It couldn't have been much easier for puny proposition Funknwaffles (Corey Callahan, $2.20) quarter-moved to the lead, then won in hand. From post No. 4, 'Waffles' took over from Serious Major (Yannick Gingras) just after a :27.4 opening subsection. He finished it off (56.4; 1:24.4; 1:53.3), whipping a belated Chip Walther (Marcus Miller) by a length-and-a-quarter. American Wiggle (Dan Dube) outraced his 49-1 odds for a first-up third, with Serious Major and What's Going On (George Brennan) coming away with the remainder. Funknwaffles, an American Ideal gelding owned by Crawford Farms Racing and trained by John Butenschoen, is 5-for-15 this season (career 13-for-24, $811,226, also a pair of NYSS titles). The gimmicks--$17.20 exacta, $207.50 triple, $609 triple. "He's been knocking heads with better horse than these and since he was 1-9 in here, he had his way," Callahan said. Cameo Hills Farm 3YO Filly Pace - From post No. 2, fave Obvious Blue Chip (Scott Zeron, $4.60) lived up her name, retaking from first leader Clear Idea (Mark MacDonald), then holding that one at bay (:27.3, :57. 1:24.3, 1:53.2). The margin was a length-and-a-half, with frosh champ Tequila Monday (Dave Miller) a from-last third. Angel's Promise (Jordan Stratton) and Ann Hill (Sears) picked off the remainder. 'Obvious,' a Roll with Joe miss trained by Mark Steacy for co-owners NLG Racing Stable and Stephen Klunowski, she's now 6-for-16 in '17. The gimmicks--$58.50 exacta, $213.50 triple. "I drove her as if she was the best, and she was," Zeron said. "Now it's on the Breeders Crown." The lass has expanded her fan base. When she won this summer's Empire Breeders (Tioga), she did so at 27-1 Crawford Farm 2YO Filly Trot - Ake Svanstedt trained half the field here, including 1-4 choice Plunge Blue Chip. Unfortunately, that local track record-holder who entered 6-for-6 picked a bad day to have a bad day. Badly gapping her cover, 'Plunge' plummeted to seventh, as her uncoupled stablemates---21-1 Lucky Ava (Gingras, $45) and pace-sitting 64-1 Fury Road (Andrew McCarthy) finished 1-2. Fury Road launched herself from an eight-hole (-28.1; 58.1; 1:27.3), opening 2¼ lengths in the lane. A third-over--from post No. 5--'Ava' stormed home, winning by a half-length in a life-best 1:58.2. Lucky Rainbow (Dave Miller) rallied inside for third at 79-1, with 55-1 Natalie Hanover (Dube) and Lima Novelty (Bartlett) rounding out the payees. Second choice Supergirl Riley (Marcus Miller) broke before the start. Fourth choice Lucky Ava, a daughter of Lucky Chucky co-owned by Svanstedt, Little E LLC and Van Camp Trotting, has won five of her nine first-season tries. The gimmicks--$1,088 exacta, $1,149 triple (first two finishers and ALL), $32,824 superfecta (first three finishers and ALL, base $2 payout), Genesee Valley Farm 2YO Colt/Gelding Pace (post time 1 PM) - Hitman Hill (Brett Miller) came in a perfect 6-for-6. He left quite imperfect. The 2-5 pole-sitter led to the lane (:27.1, 57., 1:25.1), but spit it up in the lane. Jersey Jim (Jim Devaux, $26.80), from post No. 4, buried fourth at the cones at the half, extricated him to roar home from last-over. He defeated Paprike Blue Chip (Jim Morrill Jr) by a length in 1:54.3. Topville Olympian (Gingras), done no favors when the favorite quit, did get third, with Casual Cool (Bartlett) and My Delight (Dave Miller) earning the minor moolah. Hitman Hill faded to six among the seven. Fifth choice Jersey Jim, an Artiscape gelding co-owned by Robert & Gail Sanders and trained by Perry Simser, is 4-or-9 this season. The gimmicks--$160.50 exacta, $1,082 triple. Winbak Farm 2YO Filly Pace - Division points leader Hurrikane Shorty (Bartlett) misbehaved early, while 3-5 choice Azreal as It Gets (Jim Marohn) set up shop on the lead (:28.1, 58.2, 1:27). She could not, however, stall a second move from Alexis Faith (Morrill Jr., $10.20). The latter, leaving into a four-hole from post No. 7, engaged 'Azreal' in and out of the final turn before finally wearing her down. The margin was a going-away length-and-a-quarter in 1:55.2, with Let's Fall in Love (Gingras) third. Betterthangraduate (Matt Kakaley) and Line Dancer (Brett Miller) settled for the small change. Third choice 'Alexis,' an American Ideal miss co-owned by West Wins Stable, Jim Fielding, J. Robert Darrow & Kevin McKinlay and trained by Casie Coleman, is now 6-for-9 in her first season. The gimmicks--$43.20 exacta, $277.50 triple. Harness Horse Breeders of NYS 2YO Colt/Gelding Trot - From what became outside post No. 7, odds-on Six Pack (Svanstedt, $3.90) went the distance (:28.2, :58.4, 1:29, 1:58), disposing of pocket-sitting Clive Bigsby (Bartlett) by a length-and-a-half. The Veteran (Sears) was third, with Tito (Marcus Miller) and a recovering Purpose Blue Chip (Dan Daley) coming away with the remainder. Six Pack, a Muscle Mass colt co-owned by his trainer, Little E LLC, Stall Kalmar and Lars Berg, is 4-for 8 in '17 after a third consecutive victory. The exotics--$12.20 exacta, $42.20 triple (three wagering choices in order). Morrisville Coll. Equine Inst. 3YO Colt/Gelding Trot - Yonkers Trot winner Top Flight Angel was a judges' scratch in a race that ended up not being for squeamish. A trio of breakers, including 1-2 fave Guardian Angel AS (Bartlett), scattered the surroundings. That left Eye ofa Tiger AS (Tim Tetrick, $13.40), from post No. 5, to his own devices. Nary an anxious moment (:28.4, :58.3, 1:27.1, life-best 1:55.2), 'Tiger' opened four lengths in and out of the final turn before winning by seven lengths. Icanflylikeanangel (Stratton) and Lord Cromwell (Brennan) minded their manners to chase home 'Tiger,' with a recovering duo of Guardian Angel AS and Swell Chap (Callahan) grabbing the lessers. Third choice Eye ofa Tiger AS, a Chapter Seven gelding trained by Anette Lorentzon for co-owners ACL Stuteri AB and Kjell Johansson, has hit the board in 13 seasonal starts, winning six. The gimmicks--$170,50 exacta, $1,438 triple, $4,165 superfecta. The 'New York, New York Pick 4,' featuring the Harry Harvey Invitational (Crazy Wow) and International Trot (Twister Bi), resulted in a sequence (with scratch numbers) of 3,7/4/2,6/2 and paid $24.62 for every correct 50-cent wager. Total pool was $18,985. Total handle for the 11-race card (including the 'French' hub win/show wagers for four exported races) was $1,102,532, the Raceway's first seven-figure number of the season.

YONKERS, NY, Thursday, October 12, 2017-This Saturday afternoon (Oct. 14th), while there's a New York State harness racing-record $3.3 million of Yonkers Raceway purses up for grabs, there's also a fair chunk of change to be had by some wily handicappers.

Up first-chronologically-is a $10,000 guaranteed Pick 5 pool (50-cent minimum wager), comprising the last five races during the 11-race, all-stakes card. We're talking a pair of $250,000 Invitationals, the $1 million Yonkers International Trot @ Empire City Casino and the final two of eight, $225,000 New York Sire Stakes events. The guarantee is a combined effort of the Raceway, the Standardbred Owners Association of New York and the U-S Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Program. Not to be outdone, the New York Racing Association has become a part of the afternoon, with two of its stakes races serving as the back end of the special 'New York, New York Pick 4' wager. The quartet of races are Yonkers' 8th ($250,000 Harry Harvey Invitational Trot) and 9th (million-dollar International Trot), then Belmont's 8th ($150,000 Futurity) and 9th ($200,000 Pebbles).

The wager is also available through Empire City Bets, NYRA Bets and other ADW portals. Advance wagering for Yonkers' stakes card is available Friday (Oct. 13th).
