In the cold and wind-driven snow of Yonkers Raceway, the Cat Manzi Countdown Clock advanced ever so slightly Monday night

Manzi won once in his seven Westchester drives, leaving him at 13,999 driving victories--third all-time--for his career. He prevailed with the odds-on McArdle Park ($3.30) in the $14,000, third-race pace (1:57.2).

The quest for his latest milestone continues here Tuesday night, with Manzi scheduled for another seven drives.

In another matter, horsemen are advised that nomination forms are available for Yonkers Raceway's 2011 winter series. The Petticoat and Sagamore Hil Pacing Series, for 3- and 4-year-olds of both genders, both close Feb. 15. The series commence March 18 (Petticoat) and March 19 (Sagamore Hill).

The George Morton Levy Memorial Pacing Series and its companion Free For All event, the Blue Chip Matchmaker, both close March 1. The Levy, getting underway March 26, offers an estimated $1 million total purse, while the Matchmaker, beginning March 25, goes for a estimated total of $750,000.

Nomination forms are currently available on-line at www.yonkersraceway.com and in the nightly live program, and soon in select harness publications and on their respective web sites. For more information, please contact the race office at (914) 457-2627.

Evening simulcasting     accompanies all live programs, with afternoon simulcasting available around the NYRA schedule. Wednesday afternoon simulcasting ends at approximately 5:30 PM. 

Please be advised that the final 2010 live program is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 21, with the 2011 season beginning Thursday, Jan 13 (pending approval of the New York State Racing and Wagering Board). (Yonkers)
