YONKERS, NY, Friday, May 16, 2014-Brian Sears used different tactics to produce the same result (ironically with the same payoff) Friday night, winning both of Yonkers Raceway $38,000 co-featured Open Handicaps.

Sears went down the soggy road with Fast and Feisty in the distaff derby. From post position No. 6, she splashed her way through intervals of :29.1, :58.2, 1:27.4 and 1:55.4.

The final margin was three-quarters of a lengths over a stubborn, first-up Hula's Z Tam (Pat Lachance), with tepid 5-2 choice Fashion Mystery (Eric Carlson), Keystone Wanda (Brent Holland) and Virgin Mary (Matt Kakaley) rounding out the payees.

For Fast sand Feisty, a 5-year-old daughter of Allamerican Native owned by Vincent Apolinario and trained Anthony Skultety Jr., she returned $10,20 (second choice) for her sixth win in 13 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $83, with the triple returning $366.

The week's marquee trot saw Lorenzo Dream-from post No. 7--launch a big move in and out of the final turn. He continued it through the lane, picking off the leading (:28.1, :57.1, 1:26.4) Itzaziam (Pat Berry) by a length-and-a-three-quarters in 1:57.

First leader Tall Cotton (George Brennan), Fort Valley As (Dan Dube) and Blacktuxwhitesocks (Jordan Stratton) settled for the small change. Southwind Warsaw (Jason Bartlett) jumped it off as the 8-5 favorite, as did eight-hole assignee Super Manning (Kakaley).

Sears ended with four winners on the 12-race card.

For Lorenzo Dream, a 7-year-old Taurus Dream gelding owned by Vincent Laurenzo and trained by Julie Miller, he returned $10.20 (second choice) for his fourth win in 14 '14 tries. The exacta paid $61.50, the triple returned $448.50 and the superfecta paid $1,698.
