MOTHER NATURE GONE, MEANING YONKERS BACK TO BUSINESS AS USUAL


MOTHER NATURE GONE, MEANING YONKERS BACK TO BUSINESS AS USUAL
BY FRANK DRUCKER, Publicity Director, Empire City @ Yonkers Raceway

YONKERS, NY, Monday, January 25, 2016-After the Northeast's initial snowstorm of the season left a lovely 20 1/2 inches in beautiful, downtown Yonkers over the weekend, Yonkers Raceway was back it Monday night.



Saturday's first-of-the-season cancellation turned out to be a one-hit wonder, as track superintendent Ed Ryan and his posse worked tirelessly Sunday into Monday to get the field in game shape. Monday night's dozen-race program-with guest announcer Peter Kleinhans doing for the honors for an under-the-weather John Hernan-went off without a hitch.

Favored Siloutte (Dan Dube, $4.20) enjoyed the track crew's work enough to turn in a life-best 1:55.2 effort in the $15,000, third-race pace.


The Raceway's season continues Tuesday afternoon (first post 1 PM), then Thursday, Friday and Saturday (7:10 PM each evening)
