YONKERS TROT WINNER SIX PACK HANDLES 172G NYSS MILT TAYLOR TROT
Six Pack (Ake Svanstedt ($2.10)found himself parimutuelly partnered with Trot runner-up Helpisontheway (Jim Morrill Jr.) in the second ($86,750) statebred soiree.
The pole-sitting latter stung Six Pack-from post position No 3-through a 27.1 opening quarter-mile. Six Pack then rated a 30-second next subsection (57.1 half), before finishing it off (1:25.4, 1:54.3). The widening margin, four lengths in and out of the final turn, cosmetically closed to a length and a half at the tape.
Helpisontheway barely held second, with I'm the Muscle . The Veteran and Winning Shadow came away with the remainder.
For Six Pack, a Muscle Mass colt co-owned by his trainer/driver, Little E LLC, Stall Kaimer and Lars Berg, it was his seventh win in 10 seasonal starts. The exacta (two wagering favorites) paid an even money $7.50 and the triple returned $17. Superfecta wagering was not offered.
Tuesday night's opening sire stakes event saw Perlucky (Trond Smedshammer, $32.20) roll pace-setting Clive Bigsby from second-over.
Away a bit tardy from post position No. 2, Perlucky watched as pole-sitting 'Clive' seated Purpose Blue Chip and Lindsey's Pride jumped it off.
After early intervals of 28.1 and 58.1, Perlucky hitched a ride behind Don going toward a 1:26.4 three-quarters.
Clive Bigsby owned a length-and-a-half lead into the lane, but Perlucky was poised. With minimal urging, he went by, winning by a length in a life-best 1:56.1. Clive Bigsby saved second over a needing-room Purpose Blue Chip, with 13-10 choice Cruising in Style a belated fourth.
For sixth choice Perlucky, a son of Lucky Chucky trained by his driver for owner Purple Haze Stables, it was his second win in 10 '18 tries. The exacta paid $99, the triple returned $348 and the superfecta paid $1,209. Ironically, both of Perlucky's wins have come at odds of 15-1.
New York Sire Stakes downstate prelims conclude the 16th of 16 legs with Friday night's (Sept. 14th) $156,200 Lew Barasch Trot for 2 year old colts/geldings.
