MACKENZIE A WINS FRIDAY NIGHT 40G DISTAFF DERBY
She did it again Friday night, Dec. 15th, winning Yonkers Raceway's $40,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.
With the seven lasses all moving inside one notch after a pole-sitter defection, Mackenzie A floated away from the gate, nestled fifth from her mandated impost. She watched as 3-10 fave Lady Shadow (Jason Bartlett) went over Lovineveryminute (Dan Dube) before a 27.2 opening quarter mile.
It was a 57 second intermission before the Matchmaker conquering heroine did her usual first up routine.
Mackenzie A hooked Lady Shadow in and out of the 1:25.1 three quarters, poking her schnoz in front entering the lane. She drew out by a couple of lengths in a cold and snowy 1:54 (full disclosure that the snow had stopped a few races earlier). Lady Shadow did save second, failing at odds on in both starts since her local return.
Pretty Image (Matt Kakaley), Annabeth (Greg Merton) & Truth and Liberty (Eric Goodell) settled for the remainder.
