MACH'S BEACH BOY WINS SATURDAY 26G FEATURE


MACH'S BEACH BOY WINS SATURDAY 26G FEATURE
BY FRANK DRUCKER, Publicity Director, Empire City @ Yonkers Raceway

YONKERS, NY, Saturday, November 1, 2014-Mach's Beach Boy (Pat Lachance, $7.30) lasted on the lead Saturday night, annexing Yonkers Raceway's "sloppy" $26,000 winners-over feature.

Leaving from post position No. 3, Mach's Beach Boy pocketed 6-5 choice Mystician (Jason Bartlett), then went the distance through soggy intervals of :28.3, 59.3, 1:27 and 1:55.3. Mystician ducked inside and missed a scant schnoz, with a rallying Life Up Front (Jordan Stratton), McDynamite (Mark MacDonald) and a first-up American Venture (Eric Carlson) settling for the remainder.


For second choice Mach's Beach Boy, a 5-year-old Mach Three geleing trained by his driver for co-owners Jeffrey Oborne and Dan Mogridge, it was his eight win in 29 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $19, with the triple returning $59.50.

Note that since no one hit Saturday's Pick 5, Monday's gimmick begins with a carryover of $2,679.39 (50-cant bases wager, races 5 through 9).

The Raceway's five-night-per-week live schedule continues, with first post every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:10 PM (note Sunday matinees begin Nov. 9, replacing Tuesdays [beginning Nov. 11]). Evening simulcasting accompanies all live programs, with afternoon simulcasting available daily.
