« Return to News
Mach It A Par (Jordan Stratton, $11.40) uncoiled her usual late rush Friday night, winning Yonkers Raceway’s $45,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.Beating only a breaker for much of the mile,
Mach It A Par—from post position No. 7—stormed home when it counted. She whipped a lane-finding, 17-10 fave Bedroomconfessions (Scott Zeron) by three-quarters of a length in 1:53.2, with pace-setting Krispy Apple (Jason Bartlett) faltering late to third.
It was Krispy Apple leaving from outside her seven rivals, having to go wide around that early misbehave of Moma’s Got a Gun (Brent Holland) before securing the throne.
After intervals of :27.4, :57.1 and 1:25, Krispy Apple had a couple of lengths into the lane, but tired in search of a fifth consecutive victory.
A first-up Regil Elektra (George Brennan) and Village Jessica (Dan Dube) rounded out the payees.
