Psilvuheartbreaker put forth a 1:51.4 season's-best effort Saturday night in Yonkers Raceway's featured $37,000 Open Handicap Pace, giving driver Cat Manzi one of seven wins on the 12-race program.

Assigned post position No. 7, "Heartbreaker" worked around longshot pole-sitter The Awful Truth (Jordan Stratton) before a :27-second opening quarter-mile. He then found a :55.3 intermission before Arts Ragin Jet (Jim Pantaleano) paid a visit.

"Art," with an eight-hole impost, tucked fifth before making his second move. However, he was never able to get close going toward the 1:23.3 three-quarters. Psilvuheartbreaker owned a 2 3/4-length lead into the lane, then held 17-10 favourite Winbak Fox (Jeff Gregory) at bay by three-quarters of a length. Deuce Seelster (Brent Holland), The Awful Truth and Arts Ragin Jet completed the payees.

For Psilvuheartbreaker, a millionaire seven-year-old Nobleland Sam gelding owned by Frank Bellino and trained by Bruce Saunders, he returned $9.20 (second choice) for his fifth win in 21 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $37.20, the triple returned $411.50.

New York Sire Stakes action makes its downstate debut Monday night, with $281,844 White Plains Trot for three-year-old colts and geldings. Six divisions go as races 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9 on the dozen-race card.

Yonkers returns to its customary five-night-per-week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday) live racing schedule beginning Monday night, with first post each racing night at 7:10 p.m. The regular draw schedule/change times also resumes Monday.

Please note that since Belmont Park is dark Sunday, the Raceway is not open for simulcasting.
