New York Sire Stakes stopped by Yonkers Raceway Tuesday night, with the $238,032 Art Watson Pace for three-year-old fillies

Since See You at Peelers has taken to beating up on a new set of defenseless lasses, tonight offered the chance for other talented members of the state-bred sewing circle to grab some glory.

Eight divisions - including two early non-bettors - comprised the cotillion.

Some Girls Do (Brian Sears) offered up a 1:53, down-the-road effort in the opening ($29,529) group. The daughter of American Ideal, co-owned (as Burke Racing) by trainer Ron Burke, Frank Baldachino, Earl Smith and Weaver Bruscemi, is a snazzy 11-for-15 this season (earnings in excess of $216,000).

Some Girls Do defeated New Album (George Brennan) by a length.

Southwind Jazmin (Jason Bartlett) edged away from a stubborn Alexachase (Jordan Stratton) by a half-length in the second ($29,529) off-the-card event (1:551) for a third consecutive sire stakes win and fourth win in six '11 tries overall. Mark Harder trained by Art Major lass for owner Rick Phillips.

The first wagering Watson (third overall, purse $29,529) was won by Arlington Ave (Kim Crawford, $4.40), lasting on the lead (life-best 1:55.3) as the 6-5 choice The daughter of Riverboat King, 3-for-7 this season, was trained by Maureen Salino for co-owners De Ca Sa Stb, William Salmeri, George Berkner and Arthur Lucarelli.

"We've been racing her from behind in most of her starts. but she drew the inside here and I thought this was a field she could go with," Crawford said. "Besides, if I didn't win, the owners weren't going to give me a ride back home."

The fourth ($29,529) foray (second on the betting card) saw Eve Marie Seelster (Bartlett, $14) prevail up the passing lane a life-best 1:54.4. She was able to get the better of both City Delight (George Brennan) and a Hazes Zure Beat by a head and neck, respectively. the Artiscape filly, trained by Mike Hall, is co-owned by Allen & Ira Kaplan and David Sheib.

JK Owhatanite (Bartlett), last seen here winning the $197,634 Lismore Pace, won the evening's final ($30,129) NYSS group, easily neutralizing both the eight-hole and her seven inside rivals.

The daughter of Bettors Delight threw out a 1:53.4.effort, defeating Lightning Maddy (Brennan) by 3-3/4 wrapped-up lengths. Linda Toscano trained the 3 Brothers Stables homebred, who's now 4-for-5 this season.

"She was as good tonight as she was in the (Lismore)," Bartlett said. "She's very talented and just does her job."

Tuesday night's other NYSS events, worth $30,129, $29,529 and $30,129, were won by Winbak Corazon (1:55.2), Ms Malicious (1:54.1) and Asteria Blue Chip (1:54.2).
