Something For Doc, driven by Matt Kakaley, used a different tact to get a similar result Saturday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's $35,000 Open Handicap Pace.

Leaving from post position No. 4 as the 3-4 favourite, 'Doc' allowed someone else to control the early action. That someone was the returning Tobago Cays (Jim Pantaleano), who led through early intervals of :27.1 and :57 flat.

Roadway (George Brennan) moved from fourth toward the 1:24.1 three-quarters, with second-choice Electrofire (Brian Sears) second-over.

Meanwhile, Tobago Cays owned a length and a half lead into the lane, but about to feel the pinch. Something For Doc edged out from the pocket, leaving the passing lane to Nob Hill High (Tyler Buter). The former whipped the latter by a head in 1:53.1. Electrofire grabbed the bottom of the ticket, with Tobago Cays and locally-debuting Mr Hasani N (Brent Holland) settling for the minor spoils.

For Something For Doc, a five-year-old Western Hanover gelding co-owned by trainer Ron Burke (as Burke Racing), Weaver Bruscemi and Strollin Stable, he returned $3.50 for his third win (second consecutive Saturday feature) in four seasonal starts. The exacta paid $37, with the triple returning $161.
