Quick Deal (George Brennan) became Quicker Deal Friday night, bettering his own Yonkers Raceway track--and world--record on Friday night.
 
Leaving from post position No. 5--the same starting stop from his previous record Oct. 15--in the $25,000, 11th-race trot----the 2-5 choice was three-wide early before making the lead. He did just that before a :27.1 opening quarter-mile, rated a :56.1 half, then went on administer a beating.
 
A 1:24.2 three-quarters bumped his lead to seven lengths. It was an even dozen turning for home, and 12¼ at the wire, which he found in 1:53.2...one tick faster than his jolly jaunt from mid-October. Bound for Fame (Jordan Stratton) was second, with Calchip's Brute (Brian Sears) third.
 
The effort also wiped himself out of the world record ledger under the category of "aged gelding, half-mile oval.”
 
For Quick Deal, a 5-year-old Revenue S gelding trained by Ron Burke for co-owners Our Horse Cents Stable and Rossie Smith, he returned $2.90 for his seventh win in 19 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $17.80, with the triple returning $52.

Quick Deal has won his last three races (two here, one at Harrah's Philly) by a combined 37¼ lengths.

Yonkers Raceway's Friday night $37,000 co-featured Open Handicaps--Pace for the ladies and a Trot for all duly authorized--were won by a pointed-to-the-passing lane Royal Cee Cee N (Brian Sears, $2.60) a two-move Zooming (Jason Bartlett, $7.20).

Late to the dance in her last two starts, Royal Cee Cee N was in this game at the outset. Making the first lead from post position No. 5, the 3-10 choice gave it up to last week's winner, Rock N  Load (Dan Dube) right at the :27.1 opening quarter-mile. After a cheap, 29-second next interval (:56.1 half), Marty Party (Jason Bartlett) moved from fourth, with Ginger and Fred (George Brennan) in behind.

It was Rock N Load leading in the out of the 1:24.3, up a length entering the lane. The people's choice was all dressed up in her after-Halloween best, waiting for her close-up. She ducked inside, went past the lead and getting the best of a wide Ginger and Fred by a head 1:53.2.

Third went to Rock N Load, with Mary Party and Dawn's Legacy (Jordan Stratton) grabbing the minor moolah.

For Royal Cee Cee N, a 7-year-old Down Under daughter of Christian Cullen owned and trained by Mark Harder, it was her eighth win in 25 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $12.60, with the triple returning $56.50.

The weekly trotting feature saw Zooming, from post No. 4 (in one notch after an inside defection), made a second move to work around Lorenzo Dream (Brent Holland). Zooming made the lead before a :27.3 opening two furlongs, then rated  a comfy :57.4 half. It was 3-2 choice DW's NY Yank (Brennan), who had left into a three-hole,. moving again.

Meanwhile, Zooming maintained the lead through the 1:26 three-quarters, widening to 2 1/2 lengths turning for home. He prevailed by 2 1/4 lengths in 1:54.1. Lorenzo held second with a flattening "DW," with Whata Winner (Steve  Smith)  and Super Manning (Dube) earning the small change. Returning millionaire Little Brown Fox  (Sears) broke early as the second choice.

For third choice Zooming, a 5 year-old Classic Photo gelding trained by Amber Buter for co-owners Stephen Oldford, Oldford Farms and Tyler Buter, he's now 10-for-32 this season. The exacta paid $59, the triple returned $281 and the superfecta paid $1,227.

Saturday night features finals for both the 58th Messenger Stakes ($450,000) and Lady Maud ($176,684), premier events for 3-year-old pacers. The former, third jewel of the Pacing Triple Crown, goes as the eight race...1- Odds On Equuleus (Corey Callahan, 8-1), 2- Ronny Bugatti (Jason Bartlett, 6-1), 3-Word Power (Brennan, 6-1), 4-Good Day Mate (Eric Goodell, 10-1), 5-Twilight Bonfire (Tim Tetrick, 8-1), 6-Lonewolf Currier (Sears, 5-1), 7-Sunfire Blue Chip  (Yannick Gingras, 3-1), 8-Lucan Hanover (Dave Miller, 4-1).
