DOBSON'S DOWNSTATE HAT TRICK
Driver Billy Dobson celebrated Abe Lincoln's 209th birthday Monday night (Feb. 12th) with a honest-to-goodness memorable Yonkers Raceway performance.
The Saratoga standout came downstate for three drives, resulting in three off-the-pace wins...even if one was behind a trotter.
Said trotter was Western Credit ($14.60), who reeled in a stubborn fave Aruba Vacation late in the $7,500 second race. The margin as neck in 1:58.1.
Next, a last-to-first Stonedust ($41.60), overcoming the eight-hole in the $10,000, third-race pace (1:56.2). The 4-year-old Sagebrush gelding was making just a seventh career start.
Dobson's three-fer was completed in the $17,000, seventh-race pace, pouncing after a contested battle to prevail with Gussy's Dragon ($10.20) in 1:55.3. "Gussy" held off 8-5 choice Queen Josephine by a scant nose.
Donald Billings trained Western Credit, who turned out to be a one start rent-a-trotter, while Monica Krist trained both Stonedust and Gussy's Dragon.
