YONKERS, NY, Saturday, May 3, 2014--Odds-on favorite Take it Back Terry (George Brennan) was resilient and resurgent Saturday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's $28,000 winners-over pace.

Away third from post position No. 2, "Terry" saw Versado (Brian Sears) work around That Man of Mine (Jason Bartlett). The former took over after a 27-second opening quarter before Take it Back Terry set sail for the lead.

The one did get it, finding a :56.3 intermission before having a visitor in the form of RU Ready to Rock). The interloper actually poked about a half-length in front by the 1:24.1 three-quarters, but "Terry" was not in a giving mood.

The fought back, getting the nod over both RU Ready to Rock and Versado in a season's-best 1:52.3. RU Ready to Rock did salvage second, with a cone-skimming Versado settling for third. Four Starz Trace and That Man of Mine settled for the small change.

For Take it Back Terry, a 6-year-old Western Terror gelding co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke, Weaver Bruscemi, Larry Karr and Phil Collura, he returned $3 for his second (consecutive) win in five seasonal starts The exacta paid $28.60, with the triple returning $57.

The Raceway's five-night-per-week live schedule continues, with first post every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:10 PM. Evening simulcasting accompanies all live programs, with afternoon simulcasting available daily.
