Macs Jackpot, despite four weeks off, a scratched-sick line in between and a first-over trip Saturday night (Nov. 30), took Yonkers Raceway’s $42,000 Open Handicap Pace.

Away fourth from assigned-post position 2, Macs Jackpot found himself in behind Havefaithinme N, Bettors Fire N and Fine Diamond.

Havefaithinme N led through intervals of :27.1 and :56 seconds before Macs Jackpot moved. He led the conga line which included The Real One and 17-10 choice Saying Grace N. Havefaithinme N found three-quarters in 1:24 but was about to get collared. Macs Jackpot took over soon thereafter with The Real One in pursuit.

Macs Jackpot did close the sale from early in the lane, holding off The Real One by a length in 1:51.3 while matching a season’s-best effort. Saying Grace N was a non-threatening third with Havefaithinme N and The Wall picking off the remainder.

For fifth-choice Macs Jackpot, a five-year-old Somebeachsomewhere gelding co-owned by Howard & Michael Ouriel and trained by Jeff Smith, it was her ninth win (third consecutive) in 26 starts this season. Brent Holland drove the $20.00 winner. The exacta paid $97.50, the triple returned $426 and the superfecta paid $1,171.
