3 wins for Dobson at Yonkers Monday
« Return to News
He came. He saw. He conquered. Thrice. Driver Billy Dobson celebrated Abe Lincoln’s 209th birthday Monday night with a honest-to-goodness memorable Yonkers Raceway performance. The Saratoga standout came downstate for three drives, resulting in three off-the-pace wins…even if one was behind a trotter.
Said trotter was Western Credit ($14.60), who reeled in a stubborn fave Aruba Vacation late in the $7,500 second race. The margin was a neck in 1:58.1.
Next, a last-to-first Stonedust ($41.60), overcoming the eight-hole in the $10,000, third-race pace (1:56.2). The four-year-old Sagebrush gelding was making just a seventh career start.
Dobson’s three-fer was completed in the $17,000, seventh-race pace, pouncing after a contested battle to prevail with Gussys Dragon ($10.20) in 1:55.3. ‘Gussy’ held off 8-5 choice Queen Josephine by a scant nose. (Yonkers)
