For the second time in as many months, purses at Yonkers Raceway will get a double-digit increase.

The newest Yonkers condition sheet shows that purses will be raised an average of 21.6 percent, starting on August 1. The Opens -- the top overnight class -- will be increased from $34,000 to $40,000, and one of the lower classes, for non-winners of two races, will increase from $6,500 to $8,000.

These increases come on the heels of an approximately 15 percent increase that went into effect this past July 1. That increase saw the Open classes rise from $30,000 to $34,000, and the non-winners of two races class increase from $5,500 to $6,500.
