Our Cullenscrown N (Brian Sears, three winners on the 12-race card) continued his form spree Saturday night, winning Yonkers Raceway $28,000 moist, winners-over pace.
Leaving from post position No. 4, Our Cullenscrown N sat as Report for Duty N (George Brennan) left around pole-sitting Roadway (Jim Pantaleano) before a :28.1 opening quarter-mile. Stonehouse Adam (Matt Kakaley), as the 13-10 favorite, then attempted totake over the throttle, but was rebuffed coming to the:56.4 intermission. Our Cullenscrown N then slipped out to catch his parked-out tow moving toward the 1:25.4 three-quarters.
Report for Duty N was holding sway--desperately--in and out of the final turn, but was about to get gobbled up. Roadway ducked insideand Our Cullenscrown N went wide, with wideprevailing by a headin a "good" 1:55.1. Village Beat (Jason Bartlett) grabbedthe bottom of the ticket at 54-1, with Stonehouse Adam and Real Flight (Jordan Stratton)grabbing the remainder.
For Our Cullenscrown N, a 7-year-old Down Under Christian Cullen gelding owned by Muscara Racing Trust and trained by Darren Cassar, he returned $5.10 (second choice) for his third win (with a pair of seconds) in five seasonal starts. The exacta paid $33, with the triple returning $499.
Though he did not win the feature, Kakaley won just about everythig else....as in a six-pack, with five trained by Ron Burke. (Yonkers)
