Prior to the harness racing program at Yonkers Raceway on Saturday night, the Raceway presented its first-ever Racing Under Saddle exhibition, featuring seven accomplished horsewoman riding trotters at a distance of 9/16-mile distance.

The event was won--wire-to-wire--by Sara Waddon, who guided You Go Girl in a minute, 10 seconds. S F Aceinthehole (Lindsay Greene) was second, with Where's Harry (Helen Gregory) third. Also competing were Noelle Duspiva, Jennifer Lowery, Nicole Mellberg and Jennifer Connor.

The exhibition was enthusiastically received by patrons and participants alike, with Yonkers already looking for an encore performance.

"We all had so much fun," Waddon said. "There were some nerves, but once we were behind the gate, it's very competitive. I'm very excited and my horse was super. I really appreciate (trainer) Chris (Marino) letting me borrow her."
