Yonkers Raceway hosted the New York Sire Stakes' Armand Palatucci Pace for three-year-old colts and geldings on Tuesday evening, with three divisions — at $55,833, $55,833 and $54,833, respectively — making up the ‘sloppy’ event.

Tuesday’s opening group saw favoured Pointomygranson (Scott Zeron, $4.70) go the distance, holding off a closing-ranks Cultural Paradise (Brian Sears) by a neck. Pole-sitting Serious Major (Jim Morrill, Jr.) was a best-of-the-rest, three-hole third.

The winner, from post position No. 4, knocked off his appointed rounds (:26.4, :56.4, 1:25.1, 1:53.1) for a second consecutive (NYSS) victory after beginning the season 0-for-10.

For Pointomygranson, an American Ideal gelding owned by Gold Standard Equine and trained by Chris Ryder, it was a life-best effort.

The second statebred soiree offered the exact same, two-speed scenario in exact same (1:53.1) time.

Fave Outkast Blue Chip (Morrill, Jr., $4.60), from post No. 3, went the distance, this one after subsections of :27.3, :56.2 and 1:25. The margin was a drifting couple of lengths, with Americas Sleet (Jason Bartlett) third.

For Outkast Blue Chip, a Roll N Roll Heaven colt owned by Blue Chip Bloodstock and trained by Buzzy Sholty, it was his fourth win in 14 seasonal starts.

The final Palatucci contest found In A Single Bound (Billy Dobson, $2.40) maintaining his solid form. A third down-the-road wagering choice in as many divisions, In A Single Bound—from post No. 2—left around Ideal Wheel (Zeron), then completed the task at hoof (:28, :57.1, 1:25.2, 1:53.2).

In A Single Bound opened a length-and-a-half into the lane, then whipped Ideal Wheel by a half-length. Music is Art (Bartlett) closed from last among the quintet to grab third.

For In A Single Bound, a Roll with Joe gelding co-owned by Dennis & Simone Noud and trained by Monica Krist, he’s now 10-for-14 this season.
