MACH IT A PAR WINS FRIDAY 44G DISTAFF DERBY
June 8, 2018-Yonkers Raceway returned from hiatus Friday night June 8th, with Mach it a Par (Jason Bartlett, $10.60) winning the featured $44,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.
Away fifth from post position No. 6, Mach it a Par watched as Meadows returnee Medusa (Brian Sears) led the early floor show through intervals of 27 and 56.1.
Freakonomics (Eric Goodell) took out of fourth, though not advancing all that much in and out of a 1:24 three-quarters. Mach it a Par then set sail around that one, getting first run on her rear-end rivals. Meanwhile, Medusa owned a length-and-a-half lead off the final turn before the interlopers arrived.
Mach it a Par swallowed up the pacesetter, drawing out to win by a length-and-a-half in a season's best 1:52.3. A from last Newborn Sassy (Jordan Stratton)grabbed second as the 6-5 fave, with 33-1 Delightful Dragon (Brent Holland) also offering late foot for the bottom of the ticket.
A tiring Medusa and Baryna A settled for the minors.
