FAVES PREVAIL IN YONKERS' 160G NYSS MICHAEL SORENTINO TROT
A pair of $80,200 events led to a pair of winning favorites.
The opening division saw Gimpanzee (Brian Sears, $3) mock both an eight-hole and seven outclassed foes, an as-he-pleased 4-length win in 1:57.3
Away fourth early, Gimpanzee went up and over early (28.3, 59.2) leader Cavill Hanover (Dan Dube) before a 1:28.2 three-quarters.
Gimpanzee opened 3 lengths into the lane, then finished it off because the rules said he had to. Our White Knight (Scott Zeron) did get into second (for the fifth time), with Bazillionaire (Trond Smedshammer) third and Brady Bunch (Andy Miller)-who missed the memo at the outset-fourth.
As for Gimpanzee, the son of Chapter Seven hasn't been tested thus far, winning his first four NYSS races by a combined 161/2 lengths. Gimpanzee is trained by Marcus Melander for Delray Beach, FL, co-owners Courant Inc. and S R F Stable. The exacta paid $44, the triple returned $307 and the superfecta paid $1,467
"He's just very mature," Sears-single digits away from 10,000 career wins-said.
The evening's second and final grouping was won by Chapter Fashion, who two-moved to the lead from post position No. 7, then held sway 29.2, 59.3, 1:29, 1:58.1.
Thunder tried it first-up, missing three-quarters of a length, with Chip Chip Conway third and Xcuseme fourth. The other half of the field, including second-choice Keystone Cash, all misbehaved at some juncture.
