Made of Jewels AS (Jordan Stratton, $21.60) picked off a take-no-prisoners Angel’s Pride (Brent Holland) late in the lane Friday night (Nov. 30th), winning Yonkers Raceway’s ‘sloppy’ $44,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.
Away third from assigned post position No. 3, Made of Jewels AS watched as the polester Angel’s Pride parked a wide-early Lispatty (Tyler Buter) through intervals of :27.2 and :55.2.
While Lispatty was wide, 3-10 favorite Monica Gallagher (George Brennan) was even wider, forced to race parked second-up. Lispatty backed away readily before the 1:23.3 three-quarters, at the same time backing into ‘Monica.’
Meanwhile, Made of Jewel AS took out of third and took aim at Angel’s Pride as that one owned a couple of lengths in and out of the final turn. However, she couldn’t close the sale, as her pursuer went by. The margin was a length-and-a-quarter in 1:53.2.
Third went to Keystone Wanda, with Regil Elektra (Jason Bartlett) and Monica Gallagher—waiting too long to go around her tiring tow—settling for the small envelopes.
For third choice Made of Jewels AS, a 5-year-old daughter of Panspacificflight owned and trained by Ricky Bucci, it was her eighth win in 39 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $196.50, the triple returned $699 and the superfecta paid $1,854.
Friday evening’s Pick 5, which began with a $4,266.35 carryover and $15,000 guarantee, attracted $16,069 in end-of-the-month coin. After takeout, that left an approximate pool of $16,300, with the winning combination of 3/6/3/4/3 returning $8,147.75 for both correct 50-cent wagers.(Yonkers)
