Proving it's nothing if not a good sport, the Raceway offered congrats to Abbatiello, who arrived at his latest plateau at Freehold Raceway.

The 47-year-old Abbatiello, whose Harness Hall of Fame father, Carmine, won a few Yonkers races in his day, is actually at 2,001 wins and more than $13.2 million in career purses.

His single-season bests are 212 wins (2014) and $1.6 million in purses (2008) in career which began in 1999, but wasn't 'full-time' until 2005.

Yonkers' Thursday Pick 5 wager, beginning with a double-carryover of just under $8,200, attracted $25,620 of fresh funding. The winning combination of 5/1/2/1/4 paid $217.50 for every correct half-a-buck wager.
