ALEXA'S POWER WINS 14TH LISMORE
Driver Tim Tetrick has made the race his own personal playground, winning Yonkers Raceway's Saturday night (May 26th) edition with the homebred Alexa's Power ($3.70).
The $111,444 companion event to the Art Rooney Pace attracted eight 3-year-old lasses after one was given lovely parting gifts in last week's lone elimination.
As for Alexa's Power, she-from post position No. 6-was away third, behind Pass Line Bluechip (Jason Bartlett) and Believe in Me (Brian Sears). Her position was secured after Python Blue Chip (George Brennan) and elim winner Jewels Forreal (Dan Dube) both made early breaks, the latter ending up racing inside the cones.
Pass Line Bluechip found a 28-second opening quarter-mile, before Alexa's Power moved again. It took her just about a quarter-mile to wrest the lead, eventually doing so before a 56.2 intermission.
Checkered Past (Mark MacDonald), as the 69-1 bombardier, went first-up from fifth, not getting close to the leader and her 1:25.2 three-quarters.
Alexa's Power held a length-and-a-half lead entering the lane, then held off her two pursuers. Pass Line Bluechip took her shot from the pocket as did Believe in Me from the three-hole.
The leader hung tough, however Alexa's Power won by three-quarters of a length in 1:53.4. Pass Line Bluechip photoed Believe in Me for second, with a ground-saving Reign on Me (Brett Miller) and Solitary (Brent Holland) grabbing the minors.
Python Blue Chip, Checker Past and Jewels Forreal rounded out the order.
For Alexa's Power, a daughter of Somebeachsomewhere owned by Jeff Snyder and trained by Jim Campbell, is was her third win in four seasonal starts. The exacta paid $8.40, the triple returned $29.40 and the superfecta paid $231.
