A shocking rerun, as Feelin’ Red Hot (George Brennan, $8.20) successfully authored another down-the-road tome Friday night, winning Yonkers Raceway’s $46,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.
Assigned outside her seven foes, Feelin’ Red Hot pole-vaulted over all of ‘em, working round 3-5 favorite Alexa’s Power Jason Bartlett) before a 27-second opening quarter-mile.
After a :55.4 intermission, Dibaba N (Eric Goodell) tried it meekly first-up from fifth. Meanwhile, Feelin’ Red Hot rolled in and out of a 1:23.1 three-quarters.
Taking a length-and-a-half lead into the lane, she held off Alexa’s Power, winning by a length-and-a-quarter in a season’s-best 1:50.4.
D G’s Elsa (Joe Bongiorno) was a best-of-the-rest three-hole third, with Dibaba N and Safe from Terror (Jim Marohn Jr.) settling for the remainder.
For second choice Feelin’ Red Hot, a 6-year-old daughter of Feelin’ Friskie co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke and Weaver Bruscemi, it was her 12th win in 27 seasonal starts. (Yonkers)
