Favored Feelin’ Red Hot (George Brennan, $4.10) gave nothing else a shot—again—Friday night, easily winning Yonkers Raceway’s $46,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.
It was not much more than a summer rerun, with Feelin’ Red Hot hurdling over her half-dozen inside foes to make the lead in the first turn. From there, it was stealing money (:27.2, :55.4, 1:23, 1:51.2, a tick better than what was last week’s season-best effort).
Eclipse Me N Dan Dube) offered a weather k, first-up bid from fourth. Feelin’ Red Hot opened 3½ lengths off the final turn, belying the final margin of a couple of lengths.
Annabeth (Austin Siegelman) saved second as the 43-1 polester, with Twinkle (Brent Holland), a drifting Mach it a Par (Jason Bartlett) and Eclipse Me N rounding out the payees.
For 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 ninth win in 23 seasonal starts. (Yonkers)
