YONKERS, NY, Tuesday, March 3, 2015-Stop us if you've heard this one before...Dan Dube, Yonkers Raceway's leading driver thus far in 2015, won five more races Tuesday afternoon.

Dube rolled the first four during the 12-race card, beginning with Show Me Up ($16) in the $9,000, pacing opener (1:55.3). After that, it was Mack's Gold Band ($9.40, $58 double) in the $9,000, second-race trot (1:57.3), then odds-on Rock Fame ($3.20) in the $9,000, third-race pace (1:56.2). Dube’s fourth consecutive victory was behind Jackie Goldstein ($7.10, $220.50 Pick 3) in the $13,000, fourth-race trot.

His fifth win of the day saw him duck inside with Lucky Times ($19) in the $11,000, eighth-race pace (life-best 1:54.1).

Dube's quintet gives him 75 wins locally for the season.

Note that no once took down Tuesday's Pick 5, Thursday's gimmick begins with a carryover of $3,743.02 (50-cent base wager, races 7 through 11).

The Raceway's live season continues Thursday through Saturday (all at 7:10 PM), then a "French" Sunday matinee (1 PM). Evening simulcasting accompanies all night programs, with afternoon simulcasting available daily (all provided Mother Nature cooperates).
