It was Lispatty (Mark MacDonald, $4.70) finishing what she started Friday night (May 3rd), winning Yonkers Raceway’s $44,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.
Taking it the distance from post position 5 (:27.1, :57.1, 1:25.1, season’s-best 1:53.3), Lispatty opened to three lengths off the final turn, then held off late arrivals Glenferrie Blade A (Jordan Stratton) and Magic Forces (George Brennan). The former did get second, beaten a half-length, while Rockstar Angel A (Jason Bartlett) and a pocket-tiring Lovineveryminute (Dan Dube) settled for the minors.
Made of Jewels AS (Austin Siegelman) tried it first-up and tired to last among the half-dozen.
For the favored (by $81) Lispatty, a 6-year-old daughter of McArdle owned by Gilbert Garcia-Owen and trained by Gilberto Garcia-Herrera, it was her fifth win in 11 seasonal starts. The exacta (two wagering choices) paid $17.80, the triple returned $63 and the superfecta paid $198. (Yonkers)
