BRIAN SEARS...KING OF THE LONGSHOTS?


Monday night (Oct. 22nd), Sears and---we kid you not 82-1 A Oliveinmymartini became Yonkers Raceway's largest win mutuel of the season, to the tune of $167.50 for ever correct couple of bucks.

This was far for a "shortest distance between two points" number. From post position No. 8 in the $16,000, third-race pace, the lass missed the memo, spotting her rivals about a half-dozen lengths at the start.

A Oliveinmymartini did catch the field, racing fourth along the pylons before slipping out and widest in the final turn. She defeated 11-1 Successful Outlook (Jordan Stratton) by a half-length, with 17-1 Bullvillekarla (Dan Dube) third and 6-1 Fine Art (Brent Holland) fourth.

Making her first start for owner Samuel Abdoo and trainer Amber Buter, the 3-year-old daughter of Three Olives was patrolling the Ohio fair circuit before winning at Dayton 18 nights ago. The 1:55.2 in her local debut was a life-best performance and led a $1,433 exacta, $10,999 triple (base $2 payout, $1 ticket worth $5,449.50) and $129,551 (base $2 payout, 10 cent ticket worth $6,477.55).

A Oliveinmymartini won for the third time in 10 seasonal starts.

Now, about that incorrect indefinite article in her name...
