Sent right to the front Friday night, Krispy Apple finished what she started, winning Yonkers Raceway’s $45,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.

From post position No. 7, Krispy Apple (Jason Bartlett, $6.60), as the second choice, saw a couple of other ladies—Rock N Roll Xample (Dan Dube) and Sell a Bit N (Jordan Stratton)—grab the early attention.

However, Krispy Apple took over before a :27.3 opening quarter-mile, then completed her evening (:56.3, 1:24.1, 1:51.4). Sell a Bit N edged out in the lane, but missed three-quarters of a length, with Rock N Roll Xample a best-of-rest third. Jonsie Jones (Tyler Buter) and a never-involved slight 9-5 favourite Mach It A Par (Brian Sears) rounded out the payees.

For $1.7 million earner Krispy Apple, a eight-year-old daughter of Western Ideal co-owned by Bamond Racing and Joseph Davino and trained by Jeffrey Bamond, Jr., it was her sixth win (46th lifetime) in 15 seasonal starts.

Saturday night’s 13-race card features a pair (races 8 and 9) of half-million-dollar Triple Crown events, beginning with Yonkers Trot No. 62, led by Hambletonian winner Marion Marauder (Scott Zeron). Directly after that, it’s the 61st Messenger Stakes, with Racing Hill (Brett Miller) the prohibitive favourite.
