YONKERS, NY, Monday, December 1, 2014-Question...Who had a mud facial and won five races Monday night?

If you answered "Jordan Stratton," then advance to the next round, where the questions are more difficult and probably somewhat embarrassing.

Stratton began the month with a quintet of Yonkers Raceway winners, relishing the raindrops and sashaying through the slop.

He swept the $53 early daily double, with the pacer Move Blue Chip ($14.60) in the $9,000 opener (1:58.3) and a catch-drive behind Ibanez ($6.50) in the $9,000, second-race trot (2:01).

It was longshot Western Credit ($24.60) from off the pace in the $10,000, fourth-race trot (2:00.3) for Stratton's third win of the evening, and a first-up Beachy Dream ($9) in the $13,000, ninth-race pace (1:57.2) for his fourth.

Stratton, who had assignments in 11 of the 12 races, completed his very own Pick 5 with a Massive Talent ($5) catch-drive in the $13,000, 11th-race trot (flat two minutes).

The Raceway's five-program-per-week live schedule continues through Dec. 14, with first post every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:10 PM, and the fifth of six Sunday matinees (replacing Tuesday evenings) next weekend just after 11 AM. Evening simulcasting accompanies all night programs, with afternoon simulcasting available daily.
