SHARTIN N WINS 373G FINAL OF B-C MATCHMAKER
It took just one more start to restore the reputation.
Odds on fave Shartin N (Tim Tetrick, $3.80) gave nothing else a chance Saturday night (Apr. 21st), winning Yonkers Raceway $373,000 final of the Blue Chip Matchmaker.
A week after a confounding, double-break performance, Shartin N-who had won her first three series preliminaries before taking the subsequent fourth round off-had something to prove.
An unhurried fourth after winning the draw, Shartin N saw Sell a Bit N (Jordan Stratton), Medusa (Yannick Gingras) and eight-holer Lakeisha Hall (George Brennan) all leave in front of her.
It was Sell a Bit N leading through pokey intervals of 27.2 and 57 before Shartin N began her assault. Moving with purpose, she engaged the leader right at the half, then rolled by. A 27 second third quarter (1:24 three quarters) gave her the lead, which she widened to 31/2 lengths entering the lane.
The final margin was 41/2 lengths in a spiffy 1:52.2. Sell a Bit N did save second over 49-1 outsider Motu Moonbeam N (Brent Holland), with Dude'salady (Scott Zeron) and Lady Shadow (Jason Bartlett) settling for the minors.
