SOPH COLTS DOWNSTATE FRIDAY NIGHT IN 173G NYSS DICK McGUIRE TROT
There's a pretty fair Yonkers Raceway group gathering Friday night (July 27th))in the $173,500 New York Sire Stakes Dick McGuire Trot for the sophomore colts and geldings.
Post time for the dozen-race card is 6:50 PM, with the pair of $86,750 sire stakes events-named for the former New York Knickerbocker standout, Hall of Famer and avid horseplayer-going as races 7 and 8.
The opening division includes Helpisontheway (Brian Sears, post 3), who held sway in last weekend's $61,900 boys division of the Tompkins Memorial at the Meadowlands.
The son of Chapter Seven is thrice a winner in seven seasonal starts, including a statebred win at Tioga (life-best 1:52.2. Linda Toscano trains for Camelot and Bays Stables & Little E LLC.
Friday night's second and final division sees The Veteran (Jordan Stratton, post 2) as arguably the horse to beat. The Muscle Mass colt, co-owned by (trainer) George Ducharme, Steven Michaels, W J Donovan and Jim Winske, has been the odds-on choice in his last four tries (two sires, two overnights). He settled for second (to Winning Shadows) at Monti in his latest and is 4 for 7 this season.
New York Sire Stakes continue here Monday night (July 30th) with the $172,000 Bruce Hamilton Pace (3 year old colts/geldings).
