Driver Jason Bartlett took down half of Yonkers Raceway’s 10-race Saturday, Dec. 15 card, including the $44,000 Open Handicap Pace with a two-moving Bettor Memories.

Away third from post-position six, Bettor Memories saw 8-5 fave Gokudo Hanover lead through early intervals of :26.3 and :56.1. Bettor Memories was out to engage approaching the 1:24.1 three-quarters, taking over early in the lane. Christen Me N, who protected the pocket at the outset, slid out with dead aim, but could not reach.

Bettor Memories prevailed by three-quarters of a length in 1:52.2. The Real One snapped a tiring Gokudo Hanover for third, with Caviart Luca picking off the final pay envelope

For fourth choice Bettor Memories, a five-year-old Bettors Delight gelding owned by Gus Dovi and trained by Nifty Norman, it was his sixth win in 28 seasonal starts. He paid $11.00 to win. The exacta paid $36, the triple returned $103 and the superfecta paid $293.50.

Saturday night’s Pick 5 wager, which began with a carryover in excess of $2,200 and a $10,000 guaranteed pool, attracted $17,696 of new investments. After takeout, that left an approximate pool of $15,530, with each correct 50-cent wager (6/7/3/6/2) returning $1,194.50.

The Raceway wraps its 2018 season with a ‘French’ Sunday, Dec. 16, first post 11:45 a.m. The ‘New York, New York Double’ goes as Aqueduct’s first race (post time 12:20 p.m.) and Yonkers’ fourth race (post time 1 p.m.).
