Somewhere In L A avoided the third-turn happenstance Saturday, August 12, winning Yonkers Raceway’s $55,000 Open Handicap Pace.

Passive from assigned post position 6, Somewhere In L A watched as Luck Be Withyou made the lead directly outside of favourite Sunfire Blue Chip.

Luck Be Withyou, not in a giving mood, parked Sunfire Blue Chip through testy early fractions of :26.1 of :54.3. However, passing the half and moving toward the three-quarters, Lucky Be Withyou made a break, wiping out himself and the parked-out Sunfire Blue Chip.

Dynamic Youth then found himself leading at the 1:23.2 three-quarters, but the back markers were closing in. Somewhere in L A rolled wide around Sunfire Blue Chip opening a length-and-quarter lead into the lane.

He won by a length-and-a-quarter in 1:52. Second went to an inside dive of 42-1 Polak A, with Evenin Of Pleasure, Bit Of A Legend N and P H Supercam rounding out the payees.

For third choice Somewhere in L A, a six-year-old Somebeachsomewhere co-owned by D’Elegance Stable IX, Carmen Iannacone, T L P & Gandolfo Stables, it was his 10th win in 25 tries this season. Trained by Richard Banca and driven by Jason Bartlett, he paid $7.70.

Yonkers offers up the fifth of eight consecutive Sunday matinees August 13, with a first post of 12:30 PM.
