Bartlett Clicks For Six

When the track’s leading driver wins many races, it’s not exactly a case of man bites dog. That said, when the track’s leading driver wins half the races on the card, we are lawfully obligated to acknowledge the feat.

Jason Bartlett did just that Thursday night, winning six of Yonkers Raceway’s dozen dashes.

Bartlett’s first win came – fittingly - in the first race, taking the $11,000, opener with odds-on Bazillion ($2.40) in 1:54.4. After finishing second - by a nose - in the second, Bartlett won the next five races in-a-row.

He clicked with Mach This Way ($5.10) in 1:54.4, My Spring Fling ($3.90) in 1:56.2, Denyittotheend ($5.30) in 1:56.4, Rockin Rambaran ($4.60) in 1:53.4 and Classy Lane Rose ($5.10) in 1:55.1.

The streak ended with a tiring third-place finish in the eighth race, then sixth in the ninth, second in the 10th, fourth in the 11th and a snapped-late second in the 12th-race finale.

Bartlett’s six-pack gave him 133 local wins for the season.
