Stratton With A Six Pack At Yonkers

Published: September 6, 2018 11:35 pm EDT

Jordan Stratton put together a memorable Thursday evening at Yonkers Raceway thanks to a six-win performance.

Stratton won six races from his eight drives. One of wins came in a dead-heat, while two were part of the $168,499 New York Sire Stakes Mike Cohen Pace for three-year-olds fillies.

Stratton won the first ($55,833) division with a pocketed Line Dancer ($12.40) in a life-best-matching 1:54.2. The daughter of Art Major, co-owned by (trainer) Ricky Bucci and Blue Meadow Farm, has won five of her 18 seasonal starts.

Stratton doubled his sire stakes pleasure in the second ($55,833) Cohen event, when a first-up Newsday (S7.20) matched Line Dancer’s 1:54.2 effort.

The At Major miss, co-owned by (trainer) Richie Silverman, Mary Kinsey Arnold, Edward McEnery and Michael Gluckman, is 4-for-13 this season, including a pair of NYSS wins here.

“It was one of those nights that everyone I drove raced well,” Stratton said.

Wisdom Tree (Matt Kakaley, $2.70) continued her statebred dominance in the night’s final ($56,833) Empire grouping thanks to a down-the-road night’s-fastest 1:53.2.

Her sire stakes resume reads six wins (including two here) and a second in seven tries. The daughter of Betterthancheddar, co-owned by Tom Pollack & Jeff Cullipher and trained by Ed Hart, has won 10 of her 13 ’18 tries.

“She’s smart and she’s fast and I love her,” Hart said.

“Every so often I’m entitled to one of these,” Kakaley said.

New York Sire Stakes continue Tuesday night, with Yonkers Trot winner Six Pack in the $172,000 Milt Taylor Trot (three-year-old colts/geldings).
