Pocketed favourite Alexas Power (Jason Bartlett, $4.50) gave the public what it wanted Friday night (Aug. 9th), winning Yonkers Raceway’s $46,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.

The board spoke her name and Alexas Power raced as if she knew it. Making the first lead from post position No. 4, she then deferred to raging, eight-hole-assigned Feelin Red Hot (George Brennan) before a 27-second opening quarter-mile.

From there, the lass who had won her previous three tries threw down a :55.4 intermission and 1:23.1 three-quarters.

However, she could not shake either Alexas Power or Dibaba N (Eric Goodell). A bit cooler at the windows this time around, Feelin Red Hot was a bit shorter on the track.

Alexas Power collared the leader early in the lane, going by to whip Dibaba N by three-quarters of a length in a season’s-best 1:51.1. Feelin Red Hot easily held third, with Annabeth (Jim Marohn Jr.) and Betterb Chevron N (Brent Holland) settling for the remainder.

For Alexas Power, a four-year-old homebred daughter of Somebeachsomewhere co-owned by Jeff & Michael Snyder and trained by Jim Campbell, it was her third win in 14 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $28.80, the triple returned $202 and the superfecta paid $974.

Friday night’s Pick 5, a wager that began with a $7,500 carryover and $20,000 guaranteed pool, attracted $26,812 of new coin into the gimmick. It was a 5/4/5/5/3 winning combination returning $107.62 for each correct half-a-buck wager.
