YONKERS, NY, Saturday, June 14, 2014--George Brennan rolled a Yonkers Raceway foursome Saturday night, including both $32,000 co-features.

Odds-on Aracache Hanover ($3.40) gave nothing else a chance in the winners-over event. From post position No. 3, he snapped through intervals of :27.1, :56, 1:23.4 and 1:52.1. The margin at the wire was a length-and-a-quarter over a first-up Connery Blue Chip (Eric Carlson), with Panongahela (Jason Bartlett), Mach's Beach Boy (Pat Lachance) and Fat Man's Alley (Brent Holland) rounding out the payees.

For "Aracache," a 7-year-old son of Dragon Again co-owned by William Switala & James Martin and trained by Ron Burke, it was his fourth win (third consecutive at three different venues) in 15 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $18.20, with triple returning $55.50.

The co-featured Preferred Handicap saw Take it Back Terry ($5.20) gut it out in 1:52.4. "Terry," from post No. 4, moved to attack 3-2 favorite China Grill (Lachance) as that one laid down the law with sub-sections of :27.2, :56.3 and 1:24.3.

Take it Back Terry survived the long grind, whipping the horse on his back--Fameous Western (Bartlett)--by a head. Code Word (Brent Holland), China Grill and Malak Uswaad N (Eric Goodell) settled for the remainder.

For second choice "Terry," a 5-year-old Western Terror gelding co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke, Weaver Bruscemi, Larry Karr Phil Collura, he's now 4-for-10 this season. The exacta paid $56.50, the triple returned $231 and the superfecta paid $513.

The Raceway's five-night-per-week live schedule is back in business, with first post every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:10 PM. Evening simulcasting accompanies all live programs, with afternoon simulcasting available daily.
