YONKERS, NY, Friday, October 4, 2019- An uncovered Lady Dela Renta A (Jim Marohn Jr., $9.60) picked off Feelin' Red Hot (George Brennan) at the wire Friday night (Oct. 4th), winning Yonkers Raceway's $42,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.

Away third from post position No. 2, Lady Dela Renta A watched as 9-10 fave Feelin' Red Hot pocketed Alexa's Power (Dan Dube) through early intervals of :27.4 and :56.3.

Lady Dela Renta A then moved, engaging the leader past a 1:24 three-quarters. Feelin' Red Hot owned a three-quarter-length in and out of the final turn, but the pursuer was relentless. Lady Dela Renta A stuck her tongue out late, prevailing by a neck in 1:52.1.

Alexa's Power tired in the pocket but held third, with Betterb Chevron N (Jordan Stratton) and Lispatty (Austin Siegelman) settled for the minors.

It was Liberty Rose N (Eric Goodell) at the back of the half-dozen.

For third choice Lady Dela Renta A, a 5-year-old Down Under daughter of Well Said co-owned by Dolne Farm Services & Blindswitch Racing and trained by Jose Godinez, it was her eighth win in 23 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $33.80, the triple returned $96 and the superfecta paid $200.

A friendly reminder from Yonkers Raceway that Saturday evening's (Oct. 5th) Pick 5 wager starts with a carryover of $5,299.21 and a $15,000 guaranteed pool. The guarantee is in conjunction with the U.S. Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Program.

The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager comprising races 7 through 11 Saturday night. It has no consolation payoff, meaning if no one selects all five winners (as was the case Friday night), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
