Ontario-owned Machs Beach Boy (Pat Lachance, $7.30) lasted on the lead Saturday night, annexing Yonkers Raceway's "sloppy" $26,000 winners-over feature.

Leaving from post position No. 3, Machs Beach Boy pocketed 6-5 choice Mystician (Jason Bartlett), then went the distance through soggy intervals of :28.3, :59.3, 1:27 and 1:55.3. Mystician ducked inside and missed by a scant schnoz, with a rallying Life Up Front (Jordan Stratton), McDynamite (Mark MacDonald) and a first-up American Venture (Eric Carlson) settling for the remainder.

For second choice Machs Beach Boy, a five-year-old Mach Three gelding trained by his driver for co-owners Jeffrey Oborne of Jordan Station and Dan Mogridge of Hillsdale, the win was his eighth in 29 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $19, with the triple returning $59.50.

Note that since no one hit Saturday’s Pick 5, Monday’s gimmick begins with a carryover of $2,679.39 (50-cent based wager, races five through nine).
