New York Sire Stakes action continued Monday night, with Yonkers Raceway hosting the $276,912 Rye Pace for three-year-old fillies.

Anndrovette (Jason Bartlett), making her third start for trainer Mark Kesmodel, blitzed the first of three $92,304 divisions. Leaving from post position three and leaving everyone else in the dust, she rolled through numbers of :27.3, :56.2; 1:24.2 and 1:52.3. Anndrovette hit the line 9-1/2 lengths to the good.

Galimony (Jim Morrill, Jr.), the 1-4 favourite, did not leave and did not have a chance. She came first-up and was all out to hold second over Chatty Kathy (Corey Braden).

For Anndrovette, a daughter of Riverboat King co-owned by her trainer, Joseph Davino, and Jeffrey P Bamond, she returned $7.10 (second choice) for her fourth win in 11 seasonal starts.

"I was prepared to sit a two-hole behind Galimony," Bartlett said. :"When I saw she wasn't there, I just let my filly pace on. "Last week (at Monticello), I babied early, and she made a bobble. She won by open lengths anyway, and I knew she was very talented."

The mile established a track record for soph pacing fillies, knocking a tick off Southwind Tempo's effort in the 2007 Lismore.

Hulas Z Tam (Pat Lachance) fooled no one in particular, winning the final Rye roundup as the 1-20 favourite. Leaving from post three, the defending N.Y.S.S. champ made the lead from Crown Lady (Tim Tetrick) after the :28.2 opening quarter-mile, then hid.

She opened up five lengths into the lane, before being shut down for a three-quarter length win in 1:54.3. Enduring Delight (Bartlett) offered a snappy final eighth to cosmetically close the margin, with Crown Lady third.

For Hulas Z Tam, a daughter of Bettors Delight co-owned (and trained) by Lachance, Z Tam Stables and Margaret Dey, she returned $2.10 for her fifth win in eight seasonal starts (11-for-15 lifetime).

"I can't say enough about her," Lachance said after Hulas Z Tam’s career earnings went over $538,000. "She's done everything we've wanted and she's raced anyway I've asked. She has a couple of more sire stakes starts before coming back here for the (Sept,. 25) final."

Monday's other N.Y.S.S. event was won by Freedom Crossing (Tetrick). The daughter of Artiscape sat pocketed to Barks Like A Dog (Ray Schnittker), then edged by late for the neck decision in 1:55.1. Hartangel (Stephane Bouchard) was third, while 7-5 choice Maxs Leading Lady (Morrill Jr.) trailed throughout from her outside post position.

Freedom Crossing is co-owned by Winbak Farm and Rebecca Williams and trained by Kevin Johnson.
