Yonkers Raceway's Monday program played no gender favorites. Driver Jason Bartlett won seven races, while trainer Jennifer Sabot won four.
The two successfully crossed paths three times, the first with odds-on choice Little Joke ($2.20), who won the $20,000, third-race pace by 8 1/2 lengths in a maiden-breaking 1:55.
Bartlett/Sabot then prevailed with American Venture ($7.20), who won the $19,000, seventh race by 10 1/2 widening lengths (life-best 1:50.4). Then, it was Rock My World ($3.70) in the $25,000, ninth-race pace (season's-best 1:55.2).
Bartlett authored his own personal Pick 5, which included favored Midnight Dylan ($4.50) in the $19,000, sixth-race pace (1:53.4, matching a season's-best), American Venture in the seventh, with Yes You Can ($8.60) in the $25,000, eighth-race pace (life-best 1:53.2), Rock My World in the ninth and Secretsoftheknight ($14) in the $22,000, 10th-race pace (season's-best 1:53).
Bartlett, who had nary a race off during the dozen races, wrapped it with a first-up Villager Beat ($34.60) in the $25,000 pacing finale (season's-best 1:52.2).
Sabot's other training victory was JC Kingdom ($10) in the fifth-race pace (1:53.1, a season's-best). She won with all but one of her starters Monday evening.
The Monday wagering Pick 5—as opposed to the Monday Bartlett Pick 5—attracted $20,902.74 of new money with a $10,000 guaranteed poll and a carryover of just over $4,100. The winning combination of 4/1/2/5/3 returned $618 for every correct half-a-buck wager. (Yonkers)
