YONKERS, NY, Friday, November 22, 2019-- Yonkers Raceway graded the distaff derby on a curve Friday night (Nov. 22nd), going with a brisk $35,000 Preferred Handicap Pace for the harness racing ladies.

It was Robyn Camden (Jim Marohn Jr., $16.20) getting the better of Lady Dela Renta A (Jordan Stratton) and 25-1 Cabowabocuttie (Eric Goodell) in a cavalcade of closers, the teletimer doing its thing in 1:55.4

At the outset, 4-5 fave Write Me a Song (George Brennan) found the lead, working around Sudden Change N (Austin Siegelman) before a :26.4 opening quarter mile. Then, Kaitlyn N (Jason Bartlett) grabbed the baton, parked into the second turn for the privilege.

It was a :55.3 intermission before Shady Caroline (Matt Kakaley) took out of fourth, challenging in and out of the 1:25.3 three-quarters. She towed in Cabowabocutie while our heroine, Robyn Camden, was third-over from assigned post position No. 4.

They had to get to Kaitlyn N and her length-and-a-quarter leader into the lane.

They did.

Cabowabocuttie grabbed the first lead, but Robyn Camden was about to go by. 'Robyn' then held the late threat of a cone-extricating Lady Dela Renta A at bay, the final margin three-quarters of a length. A last-to-fourth Clear Idea (Joe Bongiorno) and a tiring Kaitlyn N settled for the minors.

For third choice Robyn Camden, a 4-year-old daughter of Art Professor owned by Jason O'Sullivan and trained by Rene Allard, it was her 12th win in 27 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $103, the triple returned $783 and the superfecta paid $3,717.
