YONKERS, NY, Friday, May 10, 2019--Alexa's Power (Jason Bartlett, $6.10) retook from Lispatty (Mark MacDonald), then held that one off Friday night (May 10th), winning Yonkers Raceway's $44,000 Filly and Mare Open harness racing Handicap Pace.

Making the first lead from assigned post position No. 2, Alexa's Power gave it up to Lispatty before playing leapfrog on the lead.

'Alexa' controlled the race (:27.3, :57.1, 1:25.1, 1:53.2), taking minimal first-up pressure from Queen Josephine (Troy Beyer), while 13-10 favorite Glenferrie Blade A (Jordan Stratton) went wide to nowhere around that one.

Alexa's Power owned a length-and-a-quarter lead into the lane, then outgamed Lispatty by a half-length. Twinkle (Brent Holland) offered decent foot at both ends for third, while Glenferrie Blade A and Oceania (Eric Goodell) settled for the remainder.

For second choice Alexa's Power, a 4-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere co-owned by Jeff & Michael Snyder and trained by Jim Campbell, it was her first win in six seasonal starts (career earnings over $600,000). The exacta paid $51, the triple returned $172.50 and the superfecta paid $488.
