New York Sire Stakes are on tap again at Yonkers Raceway on Saturday night with 3-year-old trotting fillies competing for $280,752.
Saturday night's sire stakes six-pack (races 2,4,6,8,9 and 11) includes several ladies who already flaunt gaudy resumes.
Southwind Samurai (Pat Berry, post 4) looms a short-priced number in the first ($47,542) Cipriani division, an event named for Yonkers' legendary track photographer. "Samurai," a daughter of Conway Hall, is 2-for-3 this season, highlighted by a win in Memorial Day's $234,900 final of the Empire Breeders Classic at Vernon Downs.
Show Your Lindys (Frode Fladen, post 2) and Radiant One (Jason Bartlett, post 7) each won NYSS events at Buffalo.
Other statebred standouts include Secret Credit (Brian Mattison, post 3) and Upside Blue Chip (Phil Fluet, post 5) in the second ($46,642) division, Impressive Kemp (Pat Lachance, post 7) in the third ($46,642) division, Tuesdays with Mom (Jeff Gregory, post 5) in the fourth ($46,642) division, defending sire stakes champ Munis Blue Chip (Gregory, post 6) in the fifth ($46,642) division and To Lindy's Credit (Howard Parker, post 4) in the final ($46,642) event.
Yonkers' current live schedule (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) remains in effect--at least for this week--with first post at 7:10 PM. Please note that beginning next week, Thursday becomes the new Wednesday as for as live racing is concerned, meaning July 1 is the return of Thursday night racing (and evening simulcasting).
