YONKERS, NY, Friday, May 3, 2019 - It was Lispatty and harness racing driver Mark MacDonald finishing what she started Friday night (May 3rd), winning Yonkers Raceway's $44,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.

Taking it the distance from post position No. 5 (:27.1, :57.1, 1:25.1, season's-best 1:53.3), Lispatty opened to three lengths off the final turn, then held off late arrivals Glenferrie Blade A (Jordan Stratton) and Magic Forces (George Brennan). The former did get second, beaten a half-length, while Rockstar Angel A (Jason Bartlett) and a pocket-tiring Lovineveryminute (Dan Dube) settled for the minors.

Made of Jewels AS (Austin Siegelman) tried it first-up and tired to last among the half-dozen.

For the favored (by $81) Lispatty, a 6-year-old daughter of McArdle owned by Gilbert Garcia-Owen and trained by Gilberto Garcia-Herrera, it was her fifth win in 11 seasonal starts. The exacta (two wagering choices) paid $17.80, the triple returned $63 and the superfecta paid $198.

Mutuel windows open at 10 AM for tomorrow's (Saturday, May 4th) Derby Day card from Churchill Downs. First post is 10:30 AM, with the 145th Kentucky Derby set for 6:50 PM.
