In-form Gallant Yankee (Jason Bartlett), despite being parked past the quarter Saturday night, handily  annexed Yonkers Raceway's $32,500 Open Handicap Pace.

Leaving from post position No. 6, the slight 2-1 favorite worked his way around Southwind Tabor (Jim Pantaleano) just after a :27.1 opening station. He then rated a 57-second half before Arduous (George Brennan) took out of third. The leader had just mild pressure through the 1:25.1 three-quarters, widening to three lengths turning for home.

He found the mike marker in 1:52.3, before getting the mile-and-one-sixteenth in 1:59.3  Arduous won the place photo over Southwind Tabor--four  lengths behind the winner--with Johnny Z (Dan Dube and Forest Vic A (Steve Smith) completing the cashers.

Gallant Yankee, a 5-year-old Western Hanover gelding trained by Mark Ford for owner James Snyder, he returned $6.20 for his fifth win (third  consecutive) in seven seasonal starts. The exacta paid $12.80 (two wagering choices), with the triple returning $40.  (Yonkers)
