With no distaff derby on the social schedule, other high-condition contests for the ladies led Yonkers Raceway’s Friday night festivities.
A $23,000 event saw a pocketed—from post position No. 2—Shezza GNP N (Jordan Stratton, $5.90) just prevail over a hard-charging, 71-1 I Wish You Well (Pat Lachance) in 1:54.4. The margin was a head. It was 41-1 Blush Hanover (George Brennan) rallying for third, while pace-setting (:26.2, :55.2, 1:24.2) Bellatricks (Brent Holland) faded to fourth…though beaten just three-quarters of a length.
Betabcool N (Jason Bartlett) picked off the final pay envelope, while 6-5 choice American Empress N (Mark MacDonald) was hung for her troubles and backpedaled to last.
For second choice Shezza GNP N, a 6-year-old Down Under daughter of Art Major owned (as Tritton Inc.) and trained by Peter Tritton, it was her third win 13 seasonal starts. (Yonkers)
