Five-bagger for Gregory at Yonkers

July 08, 2008

Driver Jeff Gregory batted .500 during Yonkers Raceway\'s 13-race Monday night program, winning half of his 10 drives.

Gregory, who sat out the opener, won the $6,000, second-race trot with Private Education ($13.80) in a life-best 2:01.1, then the $5,500 fourth-race pace with an invading Windy City Paige (1:58). That one overcame the eight-hole at $8.10 mutuel.

Gregory disposed of another eight hole when Andy\'s Trotter ($9.20) won the $6,000, sixth-race trot (2:00.2) before Lavish Life ($12.60)--in his first purse try in two months--won the $5,000, seventh-race pace in 1:57.3. The quintet was completed when Sports Fanatic ($5.80) found room late in the $6,000, ninth-race pace (1:56.1).

Jordan Stratton and Jim Pantaleano drove three winners each, while trainer Richard Jones went a perfect three-for-three.

Monday night\'s card also featured a most improbable occurrence when the eight horses in the ninth race finished in post position order. (Yonkers)
