YONKERS, NY, Friday, January 9, 2015-Yonkers Raceway's 2015 season began Friday night with a $35,000 featured Filly and Mare Open Pace.

Second-choice Set Me Up (George Brennan, $5.80), from post position No. 4, whipped her four foes, going the distance (:28.3, :58.2, 1:26.4, 1:54.4). Palm Patrol (Mark MacDonald) moved from third down the backside, closing the margin before missing a half-length. Cooking the Books (Eric Carlson), a no-factor, 7-10 fave Robin Cruiser (Jordan Stratton) and Grounded (Jason Bartlett) completed the cashers/finishers.

Early outside assignee--and probable favorite--Voelz Hanover was scratched-ill.

For season-debuting Set Me Up, a now-6-year-old daughter of Shark Gesture co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke and Weaver Bruscemi, she comes off a career-best $120,000 season in 2014. The exacta paid $41.80, with the triple cancelled due to the abbreviated number of starters.

The Raceway's live season continues night Saturday (post time 7:10 PM) and Sunday (post time 11:55 AM), the latter a French-centric, trot-filled card with seven oversized fields at the mile-and-one-quarter distance. After that, it's Monday (7:10 PM), Tuesday (1 PM), then Thursday through Saturday (all at 7:10 PM).
