Yonkers Raceway will host New York Night of Champions (Part II) this Saturday night (September 26). The card will feature four $225,000 New York Sire Stakes finals for two-year-olds.

The NYSS events, each sponsored by a prominent breeding farm, have been carded as Race 2 through Race 5 on the 12-dash card. First-race post time is 7:10 p.m.

A quick, hot-off-the-presses look at the quartet appears below.

Second Race (Allerage Farm Colt/Gelding Trot) – They haven’t knocked off Dayson (Jeff Gregory, Post 4) all summer, as evidenced by his seven-for-seven ($182,612) seasonal resume. Having already earned 10 times his purchase price, the Conway Hall gelding looks to complete his run of the state-bred table.

Reve Royale (Brian Sears, Post 2) and Allerage Echo (Sears also listed, Post 3) have each won four races this season.

Third Race (Crawford Farms Filly Trot) – Points leader Posterity (Charlie Norris, Post 4) has, obviously, been as consistent as of these lasses (seven starts, five wins, two seconds, $88,046), while no one has stuck it to Non Stick (Dan Dube, Post 5) quite yet (five-for-five, $72,948).

Both are Lucky Chucky lasses.

Dizzy Broad (Jim Morrill Jr., post 8) needed more influence with the draw, but she enters with three consecutive victories.

Fourth Race (Winbak Farm Filly Pace) – Divisional diva Soft Idea (Jim Morrill Jr., Post 6) strolls into the finale with six wins (two-for-two at Yonkers, including a track record [1:53.4], a second and a third ($144,407). The daughter of American Ideal is surrounded – at least at the outset – by a three-headed, Ron Burke-trained ‘monster’ in Mother Of Art (Matt Kakaley, Post 5), Dime A Dance (Kakaley also listed, Post 7) and Encore Deo (George Brennan, Post 8). Of those, the middle sister appears the scariest.

No Clouds Bluechip (Sears, Post 3) has also enjoyed a six-figure season.

Fifth Race (Genesee Valley Farm Colt/Gelding Pace) – Much intrigue because of the draw, which banished Lawrence B. Sheppard Pace winner Autotune Hanover (Tyler Buter, Post 8) and the undefeated (four-for-four) Travel Playlist (Marcus Miller, Post 7) to the two outside venues.

Both are sons of Art Major. ‘Autotune’s’ enrtymate, points champ Joe Larry N Curly (Morrill Jr., Post 4) — who is a Roll with Joe colt — enters with five wins in eight seasonal starts and leads his weight class in earnings ($171,781).

Program changes shall be made Wednesday morning.
