American Courage remained undefeated in his young career scoring in 1:54.2 in New York Sire Stakes action at Yonkers Raceway Tuesday night.

American Courage is now a perfect 7-for-7 with four-consecutive wins in New York Sire Stakes action for two-year-old pacing colts, taking the $70,300 second race division. Driver Matt Kakaley moved to the lead approaching the first quarter and held sway to a half-length victory over Ill Drink To That with Sexy Blue Chip four-and-one-quarter lengths further back in third.

The son of American Ideal now has three wins at Yonkers Raceway, having taken the MGM Springfield Stakes Elimination and Final last month. The $225,000 New York Sire Stakes Final will be at Yonkers Saturday, Sept. 12 as part of the $1.8 million New York Night of Champions with eight division finals.

There was a non-betting $69,000 New York Sire Stakes division before the card and Sauvignon Blue Chip led at every point to a 1:54.4 victory. Tyler Buter guided the son of Art Major to his first lifetime win for trainer and co-owner David Dziengiel.

Live racing resumes at Yonkers Thursday with a 7:12 p.m. (EDT) first post. Racing is currently being conducted four nights a week: Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
