YONKERS, NY, Saturday, August 16, 2014-Odds-on favorite Mach it So (Brian Sears, $2.70) delivered on a short promise Saturday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's $44,000 Open Handicap Pace.

Away into a gaping three-hole from post position No. 4, Mach it So saw Dream Out Loud N (Eric Goodell) lead through intervals of :26.4 and 56 seconds flat.

Mach it So--back here for the first time since a dreaded eight-hole in late April's final of the George Morton Levy Memorial Pacing Series--went after the leader toward a 1:23.4 three-quarters, but the leader wasn't ready to give up the ghost.

Mach it So did finally wear down his foe mid-lane, edging away by a length-and-a-quarter in 1:51.2. Dream Out Loud N held second, with Rock On Moe (Larry Stalbaum), The Real One (Pat Lachance) and Life Up Front (Eric Carlson) settling for the remainder.

For Mach it So, 4-year-old Mach Three gelding owned by Bamond Racing and trained by PJ Fraley, it was his sixth win in 14 seasonal starts. The exacta (two wagering favorites) paid $8.50, with the triple returning $55.

The Raceway's five-night-per-week live schedule continues, 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.
