YONKERS, NY, Friday, June 7, 2019--With no distaff derby on the social schedule, other high-condition contests for the ladies led Yonkers Raceway's Friday night (June 7th) festivities.

A $23,000 event saw a pocketed--from post position No. 2--Shezza GNP N (Jordan Stratton, $5.90) just prevail over a hard-charging, 71-1 I Wish You Well (Pat Lachance) in 1:54.4. The margin was a head. It was 41-1 Blush Hanover (George Brennan) rallying for third, while pace-setting (:26.2, :55.2, 1:24.2) Bellatricks (Brent Holland) faded to fourth...though beaten just three-quarters of a length.

Betabcool N (Jason Bartlett) picked off the final pay envelope, while 6-5 choice American Empress N (Mark MacDonald) was hung for her troubles and backpedaled to last.

For second choice Shezza GNP N, a 6-year-old Down Under daughter of Art Major owned (as Tritton Inc.) and trained by Peter Tritton, it was her third win 13 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $368.50, the triple returned $2,681 and the superfecta paid $22,930 (base $2 payout, 10-cent ticket worth $1,146.50).

Yonkers' mutuel windows open at 11 AM Saturday (June 8th) in advance of the 151st Belmont Stakes and Belmont Park's first post of 11:35 AM.
