Mach It A Par (Jason Bartlett, $7.60), after paying her way through the just-concluded Blue Chip Matchmaker, rallied from off the pace Friday night (April 27) winning Yonkers Raceway’s $30,000 Filly and Mare Preferred Handicap Pace.

At the outset, it was Caviart Cherie easily clearing her seven inside rivals. Last week’s winner then gave it up to Elliesjet N (Jordan Stratton) before a ‘good’ :26.4 opening quarter-mile.

Mach It A Par, meanwhile, left for a seat from post position No. 7. She found one fifth, winding up second-over behind tepid 5-2 choice Lovineveryminute (Brian Sears). Both were out moving prior to a :55.3 intermission, though the first-up number wasn’t making many inroads. That forced Mach It A Par wide right at the 1:23.4 three-quarters.

ElliesjetN owned a length and a half lead in and out of the final turn, but her pursuer was about to pay her a visit. Mach It A Par wore down the leader, edging past by three-quarters of length in a season’s-best 1:52.4.

Gina Grace N (Larry Stalbaum), Lovineveryminute and Caviart Cherie settled for the minors.

For second choice Mach it a Par, an eight-year-old daughter of Mach Three co-owned by D’Elegance Stable IX, Carmen Iannacone, T L P & Gandolfo Stables and trained by Richard Banca, it was her third win in a dozen seasonal starts. The exacta paid $27.60, with the triple returning $108.50.

The winner is now over $800,000 in career earnings after her 40th victory.
