Favored Bedroomconfessions (Scott Zeron, $4.30) was first home from second-over Friday night (Feb. 10), winning Yonkers Raceway’s $50,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.
Unhurried from post position four, Bedroomconfessions watched as pole-assigned Empress Deo (Matt Kakaley) was the lone leaver. The other lasses quickly demurred through soft early intervals of :28.2 and :57.1.
Passing the intermission, Delightful Dragon (Brent Holland) took out of third, giving the people’s choice a lass to latch onto.
Empress Deo maintained her advantage in and out of a 1:25.2 three-quarters, taking a 1-1/2 length lead into the lane. However, afterbeing buried alive a week ago, Bedroomconfessions had no issue finding an open lane here. She powered past the leader, winning by three-quarters of a length in 1:53.2.
Empress Deo held second, with Delightful Dragon, Motu Moonbeam N (Mark MacDonald) and a pocketed Arielle Lynn (Jason Bartlett) settling for the remainder.
For Bedroomconfessions, a 5-year-old daughter of American Ideal co-owned by as Alagna Racing by trainer Tony Alagna and Riverview Racing, it was her first win in a pair of seasonal starts.
The exacta paid $6.80, with the triple (three wagering favorites in order) returning $22.80. (Yonkers)
