Yonkers Trot winner Six Pack returned to the scene of his handiwork Tuesday (Sept. 11) and dominated a division of Yonkers Raceway’s $172,000 New York Sire Stakes Milt Taylor Trot for three-year-old colts and geldings.

Six Pack found himself parimutuelly partnered with Trot runner-up Helpisontheway in the $86,750 second statebred soiree.

The pole-sitting latter stung Six Pack—from post-position three—through a :27.1 opening quarter. Six Pack then rated to the half in :57.1 before finishing with a 1:25.4 third-quarter and hitting the wire in 1:54.3. The widening margin, four lengths in and out of the final turn, closed to a length-and-a-half at the tape.

Helpisontheway barely held second with Im the Muscle third. The Veteran and Winning Shadow came away with the remainder.

For Six Pack, a Muscle Mass colt co-owned by his trainer-driver Ake Svanstedt, Little E LLC, Stall Kaimer and Lars Berg, it was his seventh win in 10 seasonal starts. He paid $2.10 to win. The exacta (two wagering favorites) paid an even-money $7.50 and the triple returned $17. Superfecta wagering was not offered.

Tuesday night’s $85,250 opening sire stakes event saw Perlucky roll pace-setting Clive Bigsby from second-over.

Away a bit tardy from post-position two, Perlucky watched as Clive Bigsby seated Purpose Blue Chip while Lindseys Pride lost stride.

After early intervals of :28.1 and :58.1, Perlucky hitched a ride behind Don going toward a 1:26.4 three-quarters.

Clive Bigsby owned a length-and-a-half lead into the lane but Perlucky was poised. With minimal urging, he went by and won by a length in a life-best 1:56.1. Clive Bigsby saved second over a needing-room Purpose Blue Chip, with 13-10 choice Cruising in Style a belated fourth.

For sixth choice Perlucky, a son of Lucky Chucky trained by driver Trond Smedshammer for owner Purple Haze Stables, it was his second win in 10 tries this season. He returned $32.20 to win. The exacta paid $99, the triple returned $348 and the superfecta paid $1,209. Ironically, both of Perlucky‘s wins have come at odds of 15-1.

New York Sire Stakes downstate prelims conclude—the 16th of 16 legs—Friday, Sept. 14 with the $156,200 Lew Barasch Trot for two-year-old colts and geldings.
