Favoured Lispatty (George Brennan, $5.70) was first to the lead and first to the wire Friday night (October 27), winning Yonkers Raceway’s $50,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.

In play from ‘inside’ post position No. 5 (after winning five through eight draw), Lispatty stung Newborn Sassy (Tyler Buter), releasing that rivals after a :26.3 opening quarter-mile.

‘Sassy’ then found a :55.3 intermission before Mach It A Par (Jason Bartlett) tried it first-up from fourth in and out of the 1:23.4 three-quarters.

Newborn Sassy put away that stubborn miss, but she was vulnerable. Lispatty ducked inside, then defeated a second-over Betabcool N (Eric Goodell) by a length in 1:52.4. Newborn Sassy, Mach It A Par and 44-1 rank outsider Certified Ideal (Brent Holland) settled for the remainder.

For Lispatty, a four-year-old daughter of McArdle owned by Gilberto Garcia-Owen and trained by Gilberto Garcia-Herrera, the win was her sixth in 24 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $35.60, with the triple returning $213.

A friendly reminder from Yonkers Raceway that Saturday evening’s Pick 5 wager starts with a carryover of $2,496.90.

The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager comprising races seven through 11 during every racing card. It has no consolation payoff, meaning if no one selects all five winners (as was the case Friday night), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
