Sayitall BB wins distaff pace at Yonkers
« Return to News
Yonkers Raceway’s soggy Friday night $35,000 featured Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace was won by a down-the-road Sayitall BB (George Brennan, $3.80).
The Breeders Crown champ—and lone 3-year-old here—was odds-on and assigned outside her five elders. She quickly negated that nuisance, sloshing around Grounded (Jason Bartlett) and taking it to the house (:27.3, :57.2, 1:25.3, 1:54.3).
Coffee Addict (Dan Dube) moved from third down the backside, but was originally dismissed entering the far turn. That one did hang around a bit while Sayitall BB owned a two-length lead into the lane. Four of her rivals fanned out in attempt to catch her, but none could. The final margin was three-quarters of a length over rank outsider Dune in Red (Tyler Buter), with Palm Patrol (Larry Stalbaum), Coffee Addict and a belated Robin Cruiser (Jordan Stratton) completing the cashers. Grounded faded to last…no money, only moist memories.
For " BB,” a daughter of Tell All co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke and Weaver Bruscemi, it was her 10th win in 16 seasonal starts ($519,910). The exacta paid $28.20, with the triple returning $183.50.
