It was the Sweet 16th and final downstate Empire visit of the season Thursday night, with Yonkers Raceway hosting the $161,500 New York Sire Stakes Mike Cipriani Trot for three-year-old fillies.

All of 10 lasses entered, so a pair of $80,750 quintets comprised the event.

The opener immediately had a different look when 1-10 favourite Quincy Blue Chip (Jim Morrill, Jr.) jumped it off.

That left pole-sitting Sensibility (Scott Zeron, $11.60) to her own devices, and she finished what she started (:28.4, :58.2, 1:27.2, 1:56.2). Stella Jane (Jason Bartlett) chased around the oval, missing a neck, with Pilgrims Lass (Jim Marohn, Jr.) third.

For Sensibility, a daughter of Muscle Mass co-owned by (trainer) George Ducharme, W J Donovan, Joe Sbrocco and Jim Winske, it was his second win in 11 seasonal starts.

The second sire stakes event saw Winndevie (Bartlett, $2.30) get stung early by Sweet Chapter (Matt Kakaley) before making the lead and drawing out.

From post position No. 5, she had no issues (:28.1, :58, 1:26.2, 1:55), the final margin 4-1/2 length. Sweet Chapter finished more than seven lengths ahead of Gobi Princess (Jordan Stratton).

For Winndevie, a Credit Winner miss owned by Purple Haze Stables and trained by Trond Smedshammer, it was her fourth win of 2019.
