BRENNAN WINS FIVE, INCLUDING BOTH 44G CO-FEATURES
Brennan won five of Yonkers Raceway's dozen races, including the pair of $44,000 Open Handicap Paces.
He and Always at My Place ($6.70) tracked down a clear, 7-5 favorite Bettor Memories (Jason Bartlett) late, winning the boys' featured pace in a soggy 1:53.2. The latter had taken the lead, disposing of early leader Techtor Hanover (Jordan Stratton) down the backside.
However, Always at My Place, from post position No. 5, made up two lengths in the lane, the final margin a head. It was 45-1 Soho Lennon A (Tyler Buter) third, with Theartofconfusion A (Brent Holland) and Great Vintage (Jim Marohn Jr.) coming away with the remainder.
For second choice Always at My Place, a 7 year old Down Under Bettor's Delight gelding co-owned as Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi, Larry Karr and Phil Collura, it was his ninth win in 28 seasonal starts (career 46 for 136, $1.048 million). The exacta paid $11.20, the triple returned $164 and the superfecta paid $542.
The girls' marquee pace saw Brennan, Burke and a two-moving Monica Gallagher ($11.40) prevail in 1:54.3. Into a three-hole from post No. 6, Monica went up and over a stopping Call Me Queen Be, then opened a couple of lengths in the lane.
Monica Gallagher whipped 17-10 choice Lispatty by that same margin, with Keystone Wanda, Medusa and Scandalicious settling for the minors.
For fourth choice Monica Gallagher, a 4 year old Mach Three miss co owned by her trainer and Weaver Bruscemi, it was her ninth win in 22 '18 tries. The exacta paid $39, the triple returned $146.50 and the superfecta paid $508.
Burke had three winners, though Rene Allard whipped him with four.
It's a quick turnaround for the Raceway, which is back at it again Sunday with a first post of 11:10 AM.
