Yonkers returns with popular Pick-5 pool
Sunday, June 14, 2015 - Frank Drucker, publicity director, Yonkers Raceway


Yonkers, NY---Yonkers Raceway-and a healthy Pick 5-both returned Saturday night. Buoyed by a $25,569.51 carryover and a $60,000 guaranteed pool, $58,454.62 was invested with confidence, leaving a total pool (after takeout) of $69,410.53.

The winning combination of 1 (Backstreet Hanover), 1 (Orillia Joe), 4 (Fort Knox), 5 (Rock on Moe) and 6 (Lorenzo Dream) returned $623.75 for every 50-cent winning ticket. Note that to spice things up, the first two races in the sequence were both contested with 10 horses at an added (1 1/4 miles and 1 1/16 miles, respectively) distance.

Saturday's $42,000 tri-features were won by...
--Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace)--Alhambra (catch-driver Jason Bartlett, $10.40) in 1:53.3;
--(Open Pace)--The Real One (Pat Lachance, $4.90) in 1:51.2;
--Open Handicap Trot-Backstreet Hanover (Tyler Buter, $6) in 2:26 (again, 1 miles).

Special Saturday props to the Hilltop Helper, a free handicapping sheet compiled and distributed by the Standardbred Owners Association of New York. The certified expert sniffed out the winning Pick 5 numbers with a mere $36 investment.

New York Sire Stakes visit downstate Monday night, with Yonkers hosting the $166,375 Art Watson Pace (three divisions) for 3-year-old fillies.

The Raceway's five-program-per-week schedule is now back in vogue, with first post every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:10 p.m., with Tuesday matinees at 1 (a "French-centric" Tuesday this week). Evening simulcasting accompanies all nighttime programs, with afternoon simulcasting available daily.
