YONKERS'RACE WEEK_SIRES, MORE SIRES AND SHEPPARD
Monday night, the $166,374 Armand Palatucci Pace for 3-year-old colts and geldings.$83,937, respectively, comprise the event.
Missile J (Tim Tetrick, post 4), already with the Art Rooney Pace here included in his 7-for-12 seasonal resume ($270,934), leads the second NYSS event.
When last seen locally for sire late month, the American Ideal gelding found himself way too far back before closing for a non-threatening third.
Linda Toscano who trains Missile J for co-owning stables KJ and Purple Haze,also sends out the uncoupled Carlos Danger (Pat Lachance, post 5). The son of American Ideal and Anthony Weiner nom de plume broke his maiden in his 16th career start, winning here (1:55) a week ago.
Monday night's first NYSS grouping includes Artmagic (George Brennam post 2) and Roll Away Joe (Jim Morrill Jr., post 7), both of whom statebred winners the other time road show stopped by.
Thursday night's $163,374 Michael Sorentino Trot finds two divisions of soph colts and geldings
Dayson (Yannick Gingras, post 1), despite jumping it off in the half-million-dollar final of Pocono's Beal, looms a very short price in the $80,937 opening division. The Conway Hall gelding makes his first purse try with straps looking for a 12th win in his 16th career start.
Dante (Ake Svanstedt, post 1), fresh off a win in the Vernon's Empire Breeders Classic (though 25 days between that start and this one), figures a puny parimutuel in the second ($82,437) sire stakes event. The son of Credit Winner has won three of his five seasonal starts ($207,245).
Saturday night, the Raceway's marquee open event for frosh pacing colts and geldings in the $100,000 Lawrence B. Sheppard. No elims were needed this past Saturday as only eight entered. The Sheppard, honoring the man behind the tremendous success of Hanover Shoe Farms, is to be drawn Tuesday morning.
