 The harness racing meeting at Yonkers Raceway  on Monday night hosted the $151,624 New York Sire Stakes Pat Quaglietta Trot for 2-year-old fillies.

Four divisions, worth $37,556, $37,556, $38,256 and $38,256, comprised the event.

Odds-on choice Goosebump Hanover (Jim Morrill Jr., $3.30)-from post position No. 4--slipped out late, went wide and won the opening grouping in 1:59.1.

Credit to Thelimit (Sam Schillaci), who actually beat the winner to the outside, settled for second, a half-length behind. Royal Surprise (Dan Daley) was third.

For "Goosebump," a daughter of RC Royalty co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke, Joe DiScala Jr., Crawford Farms and J&T Silva Stables, it was her third win in six seasonal starts.

The exacta paid $21.20, with the triple returning $78.

The evening's second Quaglietta event was strictly a two-lass affair, with pole-sitting Dizzy Broad (Morrill Jr., $6.90) picking off 3-5 favorite Posterity (Charlie Norris) from the pocket in a life-best/night's-fastest 1:58.1.

The margin was a length-and-a-half, with Dazzling Dollars (Trond Smedshammer) a best-of-the-rest third.

For Dizzy Broad, a daughter of Broad Bahn co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Burke, Weaver Bruscemi, Frank Baldachino and Earl Smith Jr., she's now 3-for-5 in her first season.

The exacta paid $10.80, with the triple returning $34.80.

Monday's third sire stakes event was another two-speed number, with short-price miss Non Stick
(Dan Dube, $2.80) handily besting Pampered Winner (Jimmy Takter).

From post No. 2, the people's preference two-moved and won by 2½ lengths in 1:59.4.

Straight A Student (Mark MacDonald) was a rallying third.

For Non Stick, a daughter of Lucky Chucky co-owned (as Svanstedt Racing) by (trainer) Ake Svanstedt and Little E LLC, she's a perfect 4-for-4 to begin her career.

The exacta paid $11, with the triple returning $23.40.

The evening's final statebred division was a maiden-breaker for Franniegetyourgun (Takter, $15.60).

She sat pocketed from post No. 2, then eased past Lima Playtime (Scott Zeron) by a length-and-a-quarter in 1:59.2.

Lucky Kristen (Brian Sears) was third.

For "Frannie," a Lucky Chucky miss trained by her driver for her driver's wife, Christina, Herbert Holland, Serafino Barone and Steve Bitlisli, is was that first win in four frosh tries.

The exacta paid $110.50, with the triple returning $505.

The Raceway's live season continues Tuesday with a "French-centric" matinee (first post 1 PM).
