Cinamony Stays Undefeated At Yonkers

The next time they beat Cinamony (George Brennan, $8.10) at Yonkers Raceway would be the first time they beat Cinamony at Yonkers Raceway.

The form spree continued Friday night, as the lass won the $48,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.

Assigned outside what became her six rivals (Road Bet came up ill), Cinamony had to wait her turn before making the lead. She did so around arch enemy -- and 11-10 favourite -- Krispy Apple (Jason Bartlett) just after a :27.2 opening quarter-mile.

It was a :55.3 intermission before Caribbean Rose N (Brian Sears) moved from fourth, not getting all that close at a 1:23.3 three-quarters. Cinamony owned a length and a half lead into the lane before holding Krispy Apple at bay in 1:51.3, matching her own (along with two others) track record for four-year-old mares. The final margin was three-quarters of a length.

Third went to a non-threatening Caribbean Rose N, with Handsoffmycupcake (Dan Dube) and Alhambra (Larry Stalbaum) completing the cashers.

For third choice Cinamony, a daughter of Art Official co-owned by trainer Ron Burke (as Burke Racing) and Weaver Bruscemi, it was her sixth win in 10 seasonal starts (five-for-five since hitting town). The exacta paid $15.20, with the triple returning $45.20.
