Iyq Yqr sails to Dash For The G Note victory
« Return to News
Iyq Yqr (Think Elmer Fudd saying "I wike you wike you are") followed up his 1:50.3 score in last week's preliminary with a dominant win in the final in the same exact time. Iyq Yqr, who paid $3.00 to win as the 1-2 public choice, grabbed the lead at the half and sailed home as much the best from there, finishing 1¾ lengths in front of stablemate RU Ready To Rock.
But the team was far from done.
Mann and Annunziata scored their second win in the $15,000 co-featured conditioned pace with Chevals Clivesdale ($14.00, 1:50.1), who was nothing short of airborne through the stretch, pacing home in an electric :25.3 to get up by 1¼ lengths over Super Imposed N.
Before the dust settled, the dynamic duo added victories with Our Els Dream N ($29.40, 1:51.1) and Rock To Glory ($10.40, 1:51.1).
Sicily, a 5-year-old gelded son of Art Major from the Wayne Givens barn, rocked the clock to the tune of a 1:48.2 score in the seventh race conditioned pace. In lowering his previous lifetime best by two and two-fifths seconds, he returned $17.80 to his backers for driver Montrell Teague.
All-source handle on the 12-race card totaled $1,530,328. (Meadowlands)
