If your favourite driver is Dan Dube and your favourite number is four, congratulations and go collect. Dube went 'four-th' Saturday night, winning both halves of Yonkers Raceway’s soggy $42,000 co-featured Open Handicaps.

Great Vintage ($6.20) had nary an anxious moment in the weekly pacing feature, working around a returning P H Supercam (Jason Bartlett) and strolling through fractions of :27.4, :57.1, 1:25.2 and 1:53.2.

Great Vintage whipped 19-10 choice P H Supercam—out four weeks prior to this start—by a couple of lengths. Texican N (Eric Carlson) was a three-hole third, with Rock On Moe (Jordan Stratton) and a tough-trip All Bets Off (George Brennan) settling for the remainder.

For second choice Great Vintage, a seven-year-old son of American Ideal trained by Jimmy Takter for co-owners his wife, Christina, John Fielding and a pair of Gorans (Anderberg and Falk), it was his third win in five seasonal starts. The exacta paid $19, with the triple returning $62.50.

The week’s marquee trot saw 11-10 choice Daylon Miracle—in one notch after an inside scratch—duplicate the down-the-road (:28.3, :58.2, 1:27, 1:56.4) MO of Great Vintage.

Daylon Miracle held off a second move of outside assignee Luminosity (Brennan) by a length and a half, with Backstreet Hanover (Tyler Buter), Rock Of Cashel (Eric Goodell) and Lorenzo Dream (Carlson) rounding out the payees.

For Daylon Miracle, a six-year-old daughter of Pegasus Spur owned by Allard Racing and trained by Rene Allard, it was her eighth win in 14 ’15 tries. The exacta (two wagering favourites) paid $11.20, the triple returned $47.80 and the superfecta paid $165.50.
