When live racing returns to Yonkers Raceway in 2012, one-mile racing will be returning, as well.

Yonkers has announced that all races --- overnights, series and stakes --- will be contested at the traditional one-mile distance. Yonkers had offered overnight events exclusively at a distance of one mile and one sixteenth since last February.

In its release, the track issued no reason for reverting back to the one-mile distance, but it did state that any distance exceptions will be indicated on its weekly condition sheet.

The track has also announced that nomination forms are available for its early 2012 series, the Petticoat and Sagamore Hill Pacing Series (both close Wednesday, February 1), as well as the Blue Chip Matchmaker and George Morton Levy Memorial Pacing Series (both close Thursday, March 1).
