YONKERS, NY, Saturday, July 5, 2014-Odds-on favorite PH Supercam (Jason Bartlett, $2.60) fooled very few Saturday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's $44,000 Open Handicap Pace.

Pocketed from a very generous post position No. 3, he sat patiently behind Aracache Hanover (George Brennan). "Aracache" found sub-stations of :27, 55.2 and 1:23.1, taking a length-and-a-half lead into the lane.

P H Supercam, all dressed up this week after a pair of belated eight-holes efforts, zipped inside and zipped by. The final margin was three-quarters of a length in 1:51.1...matching a season's- and life-best. Last week's winner, Pancetta (Jordan Stratton), flew home to snatch second, with Aracache Hanover, Sir Ziggy's Z Tam (Pat Lachance) and Casimir Jitterbug (Larry Stalbaum) rounding out of the payees.

For George Morton Levy Series winner P H Supercam, a 7-year-old Million Dollar Cam gelding owned by Bamond Racing and trained by PJ Fraley, it was his fifth win in 19 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $26.60, with the triple returning $108.

Special Saturday props to Keystone Velocity (Stratton, $2.80), whose 1:50.4, 9¼ -length flogging of the field in the $20,000, fourth-race pace was the fastest local mile of the season. It also matched the venerable former all-track record holder Silver Almahurst's 1993 (final of Levy) standard for an aged pacing horse.

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.
