A quick look at Thursday night's harness racing results from Yonkers Raceway showed leading driver Jason Bartlett winning six races...which he did, during the 13-race parimutuel card.

However, throw in one non-betting division of the Empire City Claiming Series, and fast math says Jason Bartlett notched a Lucky 7 for the second consecutive Thursday.

Bartlett's happy-half dozen on the wagering card included his own personal Pick-4, after Einstein's Theory ($2.60) won the $10,000, third-race pace in 1:56.1, Hard Hitter ($3.90) won the $15,000, fourth-race Empire City Claiming Series pacing event in 1:55.4, Pacific Flora ($3.60) won her $15,000, fifth-race portion of the same series (1:56.1) and Winbak Bunny ($4.60) was a passing-lane winner (1:57) in the $15,000, sixth-race Empire Series pace.

Allikait Fighter ($6.50) was Bartlett's fifth winner, taking the $10,000, eight-race pace (1:56.1) before odds-on Thebeastfromtheast ($3.20) ambushed her foes in the $20,000 pacing finale (1:54).

Bartlett began the night with AB Ruff Stuff sticking his nose out at the right time, winning the second Empire non-bettor in a blanket finish (1:59.1)

Four of the seven winners were trained by Matt Medeiros.

Bartlett entered Thursday ranked fourth in 2009 North American driver standings with 418 victories.
