BIT OF A LEGEND N WINS SATURDAY NIGHT 44G OPEN HANDICAP PACE
Such was Jordan Stratton's post-race assessment after slight choice Bit of Legend N went last to first Saturday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's featured $44,000 Open Handicap Pace.
Unsurprisingly away last from his eight-hole confinement, Bit of a Legend N watched the sort of scrum he needed develop.
Caviart Luca (George Brennan) made the first lead, looping Americanprimetime (Greg Merton). The latter then made the lead right at a 26.2 opening quarter-mile, then found a 55.1 intermission. Doctor Butch (Jason Bartlett) was situated third, while Barimah A (Brent Holland) moved first-up from fourth.
Givenupdreaming (Eric Goodell) chased from second-over, with Robbie Burns N (Joe Bongiorno) behind that one and Bit of a Legend N working from fourth-over. The octet tightened up in and out of a 1:23.3 three-quarters, with Robbie Burns N wide and Bit of a Legend N widest.
Americanprimetime owned a length lead into the lane, but company was coming. Robbie Burns N disposed of Americanprimetime, but Bit of a Legend N dispatched all of 'em. He whipped Robbie by a widening length and a quarter in 1:51.4. Americanprimetime held third, with a rallying Capozzo (Mark MacDonald) and Caviart Luca settling for the minors.
