YONKERS, NY, Monday, January 5, 2015-Yonkers Raceway's 2015, 238-program live schedule begins Friday night, along with the return of evening simulcasting. Another example of good things coming to those who wait.

A 12-race card has been drawn, featuring q $35,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace (6th race), where a locally-debuting millionaires--now-10-year-old Voelz Hanover (Pat Lachance)-was assigned outside her five rivals.

Please note the post times for the upcoming season are as such...--Mondays/Thursdays/Fridays/Saturdays - first post 7:10 PM
--Tuesdays - first post 1 PM
--Sundays -- first post 11:25 AM (only one [11th] in January)

Save for a six-card first full week, Yonkers generally offers a five-program-per-week schedule. Included in that is a proposed 31 days (174 races) simulcast to a French-hubbed audience. The "French races" begin this Sunday Sunday, Jan. 11, and end with the final (Dec. 13) program of the season.

A stakes schedule shall be announced shortly.

The complete 2015 schedule is pending approval of the New York State Gaming Commission.
