Odds-on Luminosity and Machs Beach Boy shared the Saturday night glory, winning Yonkers Raceway’s pair of $40,000 Open Handicaps.

Luminosity (George Brennan, $2.80), starting from post position six in the marquee trot, took away any suspense early. He easily worked around Cashontherocs (Jason Bartlett), then completed the requisite route (:27.3, :57.2, 1:26, 1:55.2).

The final margin was 2-½ lengths over a from-last Zooming (Tyler Buter), who skimmed the cones. Cashontherocs was third with a two-move Natural Herbie (Verlin Yoder) and Uva Hanover (Jordan Stratton) also earning pay envelopes.

For Luminosity, a five-year-old Cash Hall gelding co-owned (as Burke Racing Stable LLC) by (trainer) Ron Burke and Weaver Bruscemi LLC, it was his 13th win in 30 seasonal starts.

The weekly featured pace saw an early scrum between Moonliteonthebeach (Bartlett), E Z Noah (Mark MacDonald) and a parked-out Great Vintage (Dan Dube). That led to brisk numbers (:26.1, :54.3) on a brisk night, which was not the way to do business.

As Great Vintage was retreating toward a 1:23.1 three-quarters, Machs Beach Boy (Pat Lachance, $21.20) left the cones. The move may have pushed 11-10 choice Take It Back Terry (Brennan) wide as E Z Noah was about done on the lead.

Machs Beach Boy owned a length advantage into the lane, then whipped by a length-and-a-quarter in 1:51.4. Dream Out Loud N (Buter), Moonliteonthebeach and Sapphire City (Stratton) rounded out the payees.

For fifth choice Machs Beach Boy, a six-year-old Mach Three gelding trained for his driver for Ontario co-owners Dan Mogridge and Jeffrey Oborne, it was his 10thwin in 33 tries this season.
