YONKERS, NY, Friday, January 17, 2020--Itty Bitty (Dan Dube., $8.10) was the best after two moves Friday night (Jan 17th), winning Yonkers Raceway's $35,000 Filly and Mare Preferred Handicap Pace.

Away third from assigned post position No. 5, Itty Bitty watched as 3-5 favorite Feelin' Red Hot (George Brennan) leapfrogged her quintet of inside rivals.

After early intervals of :27 and :57, Itty Bitty was out and moving toward a 1:25.2 three-quarters. She then engaged the leader in and out of the final turn, with the people's preference empty through the lane. Itty Bitty was able to close the sale, the final margin over two-hole Cay's Blessing (Jason Bartlett) a neck in 1:54.2. Made of Jewels AS (Eric Goodell), Renaissance Lady K (Jordan Stratton) and Feelin' Red Hot settling for the minors.

Tipp City (Brent Holland) was outrun.

 

For second choice Itty Bitty, a now-6-year-old daughter of Always a Virgin co-owned (as Allard Racing) by (trainer) Rene Allard, B&I Stables, Stephen Klunowski and John Schmucker, it was a successful seasonal debut for a 24th career victory. The exacta paid $51, with the triple returning $181
