Rockin' Glass (Dan Dube) negated his ordered impost and his seven rivals Saturday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's $44,000 Open Handicap Pace.
Starting from the eight hole, Rockin' Glass made the lead around 17-10 favorite McClelland (Mark MacDonald) after a :26.4 opening quarter-mile. Then there was a :55 second intermission and 1:23.2 three-quarters, with Blatantly Good (Eric Goodell) offering only limited, first-up competition. Rockin' Glass owned a length-and-a-half lead into the lane, then defeated pole-assignee Four Trumps A (Larry Stalbaum) by a half-length in 1:52.1. McClelland, Nob Hill High (Jordan Stratton) and Code Word (Jason Bartlett) rounded out the payees.
For Rockin' Glass, a 4-year-old Rocknroll Hanover gelding owned by Lee Cotroneo and trained by Cad Gregory, he returned $8.30 (second choice) for his 13th win in 27 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $92.50, with the triple returning $268.
The Raceway continues its normal five-night-per-week live schedule, with first post every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:10 PM. Evening simulcasting accompanies all live programs, with afternoon simulcasting available around the NYRA schedule. (Yonkers)
