YONKERS, NY, Saturday, October 4, 2014-P H Supercam (Jason Bartlett, $18.40) sat, sat, and sat again Saturday night, before eventually angling out and winning Yonkers Raceway's $44,000 Open Handicap Pace.

Assigned outside his seven foes after winning this race a week ago, P H Supercam watched as Dream Out Loud N (Eric Goodell) paid a :26.2 opening quarter-mile price to get around pole-assignee The Real One (Pat Lachance).

Dream Out Loud N then hung 6-5 choice Easy Again (George Brennan) through a :55.2 intermission. Moving toward the 1:23.3 three-quarters, the leader was tiring and the people' choice stopped. Casimir Jitterbug (Dan Dube) went wide, while a parade of ponies extricated themselves from the cones.

First The Real One, then Fameous Western (Larry Stalbaum) and finally a ground-saving P H Supercam, who had advanced taking the inside route. That one widened to win by a couple of lengths in 1:52. Second went to a last-over Pancetta (Eric Carlson), with Fameous Western, The Real One and Casimir Jitterbug rounding out the payees.

For fifth choice P H Supercam, a 7-year-old Million Dollar Cam gelding owned by Bamond Racing and trained by PJ Fraley, it was his ninth win in 30 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $79, with the triple returning $602

A $25,000 Open Handicap Pace for 3-year-old colts and geldings--leading to the Messenger Stakes here later this month--was won by All Bets Off (Brennan, $3.60). That one defeated over a fast-closing McWicked (Bartlett) in 1:52.4.

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.
