ANDY RAY WINS SUNDAY 44G OPEN HANDICAP TROT
The Sunday feature went at the flat mile, one race after the seven added-distance 'French' trots.
The field of seven was effectively downsized to four as three of the gang-The Last Chapter, Crazy About Pat. and Gruden -did the dance of the damned.
Meanwhile, Andy Ray-from post position No. 5-worked around 1-2 choice Lean Hanover for the lead before a 28.1 opening quarter-mile.
He then gave it up to DW's NY Yank, with that one finding a 57.4 intermission. However, "Andy" was getting' itchy and gettin' out before a 1:26.3 three-quarters.
Andy Ray disposed of DW's NY Yank, but Lean Hanover was poised right behind. The people's preference proved no match, though, as Andy Ray finished it off by three-quarters of a length in 1:55.3. A tiring DW's NY Yank was third, dividing the smaller envelope with a trotting-in-place Lazarus and The Last Chapter.
For second choice Andy Ray, a 6 year old Crazed gelding owned by Yinson Quezada and trained by Anette Lorentzon, it was his sixth win in 27 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $16.40, the triple returned $28.50 and the superfecta paid $251.50.
Sunday's incarnation of the 'New York, New York Double' featured a winning combination of 5-Tequila Sunday (Aqueduct's 1st race) and 1-Quick Summer (Yonkers' 5th race), returning $23.70 for every correct $1 ticket. Total pool was $3,416.
