With nary a distaff derby in sight Friday night, Yonkers Raceway offered $22,000 tri-features.
In the trot, odds-on favorite Icanflylikeanangel (Jason Bartlett, $3.30) has no issues whatsoever. From post position No. 5, he worked around Majestic Brayden (Joe Bongiorno), making the lead before a :28.1 opening quarter-mile.
From, there, it was a :58.2 intermission and 1:27 three-quarters, with pole-sitting Lord Cromwell (Matt Kakaley) not getting close first-up from third. Icanflylikeanangel owned a length-and-three-quarter lead into the lane, needing only to hold off his immediate stalker.
He did, defeating Majestic Brayden by a couple of lengths in 1:55.2. Third went to Lord Cromwell, sharing the minors with Sumatra (George Brennan) and I’m the Muscle (Dan Dube).
For Icanflylikeanangel, a 5-year-old Archangel gelding co-owned by Pollack Racing and Randy Bendis and trained by Scott DiDomenico, it was his fifth win in 21 seasonal starts. (Yonkers)
