Bullseye and Steve Smith paid a whopping $192.50 for the 1:55 win.
Smith and Bullseye ($192.50) was cited for excessive tote board lighting Tuesday afternoon, winning Yonkers Raceway's $10,000, eighth-race pace with the chunkiest mutuel of the season.

Unhurried from post position No. 7, Bullseye was seventh at the three-quarters and fifth into the lane. He outmuscled Inthenameofjames (Jason Bartlett) by three-quarters of length in 1:55, his first board finish in three 2016 tries. Last Dragon (Brian Sears), the just-over-even-money favorite, led into the stretch but tired and finished last.

Bullseye, a 5-year-old Cam's Card Shark gelding owned by Alroy Chow and trained by Anita Vallee, also led the highest exacta ($793) thus far this season. It's fair to say upset, which begin the Pick 5 sequence, was responsible for the wager going unclaimed. Thus, Friday night's gimmick features a carryover of $2,163.39 (50-cent base wager, races 7 through 11).
