As if owner Frank Bellino and trainer Bruce Saunders didn't have enough Saturday night fun (see Rock N Roll Heaven in the Berry's Creek), Psilvuheartbreaker (Cat Manzi) added to it, winning Yonkers Raceway's featured $37,000 Open Handicap Pace.

The even-money favourite, leaving from post position No. 5, offered minimal suspense. He cleared pole-sitting Image Of Dawn (Pat Lachance) like a hurdler, rolling through open-lead fractions of :27, :56 and 1:24.2. Handsome Harry (Brett Miller) tried a second move after leaving for a seat, but "Heartbreaker" had four lengths for hone. He won by three comfy lengths in a season's-best 1:53.4, with Days Of Courage N (Stephane Bouchard) getting into second and Ghees House (Brent Holland) third.

A fumbly-gaited Handsome Harry and Lindys Bandit (Jordan Stratton) completed the payees.

For Psilvuheartbreaker, a millionaire seven-year-old Nobleland Sam gelding, he returned $4.20 for his third win in 17 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $38.80, the triple returned $326.50 and the superfecta paid $4,025.
