Yonkers Raceway has announced an across-the-the-board purse increase and some condition changes, beginning with next week’s sheet.

The hike raises the overnight purse range from $8,500 (for non-winners of $5,000 last five starts and/or $12,500 claimers) to $45,000 (weekly Opens/Open Handicaps). The current structure is $8,000 to $40,000.

As far as conditioned races, the new non-winner ‘limits’ (all in five last five starts) appear below.

• $5,000 (winners over $20,000 in 2016 not eligible)
• $7,500 (w/o $37,500 n/e, optional $15,000 claimer)
• $10,000 (w/o $50,000 n/e, optional $20,000 claimer)
• $15,000 (w/o $75,000 n/e, optional $30,000 claimer)
• $20,000
• $25,000

The race office may tweak these (or any) conditions as necessary.

Again, the new scale takes effect next Monday (May 16). For more information, please contact the race office at 914-457-2627.
