Yonkers, NY--Despite the inclement weather two short-field harness racing divisions roughed the wind and the rain and competed over a muddy racetrack in the North American Amateur Drivers Association's $8,000 non-wagering trots which were presented on Thursday night (Oct. 29) prior to the waging card getting underway at Yonkers Raceway.

In the first split 17-year-old Brett Beckwith scored behind DW's Revenge in 2:01 while Paul Minore and If I Must notched their second victory in amateur events in less than a week, having won an American Harness Drivers Club trot at Freehold Raceway on Sat, October 24. Their victory tonight was in a 2:00.3.

In his division Beckwith sat a pocket until the three quarters and then rallied DW's Revenge to a going away 4-1/2 length triumph over Jacks To Open (Nicole Dicostanzo) who was cutting the fractions. Tough Get Going garnered the show dough for Joe Faraldo.

In the other split, Paul Minore charged If I Must to the lead as the wings of the mobile gate folded then grabbed leather and allowed Tony Ciufettelli to take command with Someway Sam Hall. Minore then sat chilly and followed Ciuffetelli's lead all the way to the top of the stretch and then rallied his trotter to score a head triumph. Third place went to Ladys Big Stormont and driver Alan Schwartz.
