YONKERS, NY, Friday, October 18, 2019--Harness racing favorite--and lone leaver--Tequila Monday (Eric Goodell, $3.90) finished it off Friday night (Oct. 18th), winning Yonkers Raceway's $42,000 Filly and Mare Open Pace.

From post position No. 6, Tequila Monday worked around pole-sitting Robyn Camden (Jim Marohn Jr.) before a 27-second opening quarter-mile. From there, the Raceway's fastest-ever femme (a 1:50 flat effort in late June) was sufficiently swift through intervals of :56.1, 1:24.3 and 1:52.2.

Tequila Monday held off a second-over I'mprincessgemma A (Joe Bongiorno) by a half-length, with Robyn Camden third. The small envelopes went to a first-up Write Me a Song (George Brennan) and Glenferrie Blade A (Jordan Stratton).

For Tequila Monday, a 5-year-old statebred daughter of American Ideal co-owned by Northfork Racing & Chuck Pompey and trained by Chris Oakes, it was her 10th win in 13 seasonal starts (career 27-for-57). The exacta paid $12.60, the triple returned $29.20 and the superfecta paid $74.50.
