The Fourth of July produced few feature-race fireworks, with favoured Four Trumps A romping over Yonkers Raceway's $48,000 Open Handicap Pace.

With Larry Stalbaum (three winners on the 13-race card) doing the honours, Four Trumps A--as the 1-2 choice--left from post position No. 5. He took as brief three-hole while another leaver, Eagle Real One (Ray Schnittker), jumped it off in the first turn.

The favourite then moved past pole-sitting Tenant In Chief (Brent Holland) just after a :27.2 opening quarter-mile. He then rated a :56.3 half before accelerating down the backside. King Cat Anvil N (Jordan Stratton) gave it a go first-up toward the 1:24 three-quarters.

That one was easily dismissed while Four Trumps A opened a five-length lead turning for home. He prevailed by 5-3/4 lengths in 1:51.4, matching his own fastest local '09 effort. King Cat Anvil N did hold off the rest, with Forensic Z Tam (Pat Lachance), Sadies Soloist (Jason Bartlett, like Stalbaum, three winners Saturday) and Tenant In Chief completing the cashers.

For Four Trumps A, a seven-year-old Down Under son of Trump Casino co-owned by (trainer) Kimberly Asher and Mike Sorentino Jr., he paid $3 for his seventh win in 13 North American seasonal tries. The exacta paid $19, with the triple returning $145.
