YONKERS, NY, Monday, April 22, 2019-There's a cool $73,000 up for grabs Tuesday night (Apr. 23rd) in the final of Yonkers Raceway/Standardbred Owners Association of New York Bonus Trotting Series.

After three harness racing preliminary rounds, Swansea emerged as the only perfect participant, winning each as an odds-on favorite. The 4-year-old Swan for All gelding landed post position No. 3 in the seventh-race finale, with George Brennan driving for co-owners Triple D Stables & Dana Parham and trainer Scott DiDomenico.

For the season, Swansea has seven wins and three seconds in a dozen starts ($91,375).

Joey Bats (Jason Bartlett, post 8) sandwiched a pair of series wins around a second to Swansea. The 4-year-old Holiday Road gelding, 4-for-7 this season, is trained by Andrew Harris for co-owners Marc Reynolds, Scott Dillon and Michele Nelson.

Rich and Miserable (Dave Miller, post 7) uncorked a solid rally to chase home Joey Bats a week ago after he won his previous start, while Chasin' Dreams (Jordan Stratton, post 6) had a win, a second and a third in his trio of tries.

Omaha Omaha (Tim Tetrick, post 1), Henderson Seelster (Mark MacDonald, post 2), No Excuses (Scott Zeron, post 4) and Whether or Not Fi (Yannick Gingras, post 5) round out the roster.

All entrants, save for Omaha Omaha, are eligible for an SOA-paid $10,000 bonus for winning the final.

A $35,000 series consolation goes as the fourth race.

The series was open to 3-year-olds and their elders who were non-winners of six parimutuel races and/or $100,000 through this past Feb. 1st (winners over $150,000 lifetime through that same date ineligible).

First post for the 10-race card is 6:50 PM.
