It was a grinding Lispatty who prevailed Friday night, winning Yonkers Raceway’s $42,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.

Away an early fourth from post position No. 2, Lispatty improved one place when 4-5 pole-sitting fave Kaitlyn N (Jason Bartlett) jumped it off.

Alexas Power (Jim Marohn, Jr.) and Dibaba N (Eric Goodell) fronted the fray early, with the former leading through subsections of a :27-second opening quarter-mile and a :55.4 intermission.

Lispatty was out and moving toward a 1:23.4 three-quarters for driver Austin Siegelman, hooking Alexas Power in and out of the final turn before putting that one away. Lispatty then held off the lass she towed into it, Angels Pride (George Brennan), by three-quarters of a length in 1:52.3.

Betterb Chevron N (Jordan Stratton), Dibaba N and ‘Alexa’ settled for the small change.

For sixth choice Lispatty, a six-year-old daughter of Mcardle owned by Gilberto Garcia-Owen and trained by Gilberto Garcia-Herrera, it was her eighth win in 27 seasonal starts. She paid $33.80 to win.
