Favourite Mach It A Par (Jason Bartlett, $4.10) prevailed from the pocket on Friday night (September 28), winning Yonkers Raceway’s $44,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.

Making the first lead from assigned post position No. 4, Mach It A Par gave it up to second choice Newborn Sassy (Eric Goodell) before a :27.2 opening quarter-mile.

That one rated a :29.1 second subsection (:56.3 intermission) before Magic Forces (George Brennan) made her second move, first-up from fourth. However, a :27.4 third quarter (1:24.2) disposed of that challenger, ‘Sassy’ taking a length and a quarter lead into the lane.

Mach It A Par then eased her way out and by, winning by a length and three-quarters in 1:53. Second went to Keystone Wanda (Jim Marohn Jr.), who closed from seventh at the three-quarters. Newborn Sassy saved the bottom of the ticket, with Terror At Night (Mark MacDonald) and Scandalicious (Brent Holland) rounding out the payees.

For Mach It A Par, an eight-year-old daughter of Mach Three co-owned by D’Elegance Stable IX, Carmen Iannacone, T L P & Gandolfo Stables and trained by Rich Banca, the win was her ninth in 31 seasonal starts (career 46-for-139, earnings over $982,000). The exacta paid $37.60, the triple returned $207.50 and the superfecta paid $901.
