It’s a frosh-fest Monday night (Aug. 20), with Yonkers Raceway hosting the $160,400 New York Sire Stakes Michael Sorentino Trot for two-year-old colts and geldings.

Post time for the dozen-race card is 6:50 p.m., with the pair of $80,200 state-bred events going as races six and eight.

The opening division finds Gimpanzee (Brian Sears, post 8) eying a fourth Sire Stakes win in as many starts. The son of Chapter Seven hasn’t been tested thus far, winning those first three races by a combined 12-1/4 lengths. He hits town after a lifetime-best 1:55.4 effort at Saratoga, a track record for that age group.

Gimpanzee is trained by Marcus Melander for Delray Beach, Fla. co-owners Courant Inc. and S R F Stable.

Geldings Horns For Three (Jason Bartlett, post 1) and Cavill Hanover (Dan Dube, post 2) have each won twice in Sire Stakes competition, the latter edging the former earlier this month at Batavia.

Our White Knight (Scott Zeron, post 5) has been a bridesmaid four times (with one third) in his five NYSS tries, while Brady Bunch (Andy Miller, post 7) has chased home Gimpanzee in his last couple of Sire Stakes efforts.

The evening’s second grouping has Thunder (Zeron, post 5) going after a third consecutive NYSS win. The son of Conway Hall, trained by John Butenschoen for co-owners Crawford Racing, Jeremey Day and VIP Internet Stable, was an off-the-pace, lifetime-best 1:58.3 at Batavia in his latest work night.

Chip Chip Conway (Jim Taggart Jr., post 3) has two wins and two seconds in a half-dozen seasonal starts, while Chapter Fashion (Bartlett, post 7) enters off an open stakes win in a division of the Arthur Tompkins Memorial at Tioga Downs, a maiden-breaking 1:56.1.
