YONKERS, NY, Saturday, August 22, 2015 - Dynamic Youth (George Brennan, $5.10) and (Cashontherocs, Brennan again, $29.20) divided Yonkers Raceway's Saturday night glory, winning the $48,000 harness racing co-features. Dynamic Youth, as the 3-2 favorite, just about went the distance in the blind-draw Open Pace. In play from post position No. 6, he retook from Rock on Moe (Dan Dube) after a :26.2 opening quarter-mile. After that, intervals of :55.3, 1:23.3 and 1:51.1 closed the sale. The final margin over a stubborn, first-up Sapphire City (Jason Bartlett) was a length-and-a-half, with a belated The Real One (Pat Lachance), Texican N (Eric Carlson) and Rock on Moe coming away with the minor moolah. For Dynamic Youth, a Bettor's Delight 6-year-old gelding trained by Ron Burke for co-owners Ken Tucci, C&G Racing and J&T Silva Stables, it was his fifth win in 13 seasonal starts. The exacta (two wagering favorites paid $15, with the triple returning $53.50. The week's marquee trot, this one handicapped, saw pole-assigned Cashontherocs stalk Sevruga (Lachance), then beat him up the inside. The former threw down fractions of :27.4, :57.1 and 1:26, while parking out Dewycolorintheline (Jordan Stratton). Sevruga had a length-and-a-half into the lane, but Cashontherocs went in, and by. The margin was a half-length in 1:55.1. A wide Not Afraid (Dube) was third, with tepid 3-1 choice Tober (Bartlett) and Outburst (Tyler Buter) completing the cashers. For seventh choice Cashontehrocs, a 6-year-old Cash Hall gelded trained by Scott DiDomenico for owner Larry Fischer, he's now 3-for-21 this season. The exacta paid $55, the triple returned $221 and the superfecta paid $8,725 (base $2 payout). Also Saturday night, Bright Blue Eyes (Brian Sears, $5.60) and Murderer's Row (Bartlett, $25.20) won their respective $20,000 eliminations for the Hudson Filly Trot. The 3-year-olds won in 1:56.3 and 1:57.1, respectively, and shall be joined in next Saturday's $149,240 final by (alphabetically) Katniss, Lady Winona, Marion Millionair, Oh My Darlin', Scented Roses and Wouldn't Itbesweet. Rules of the Road (Bartlett), the 1-2 choice in the first elim, broke early and often and finished last. The Raceway's live season continues Monday night (first post 7:10 PM), with the $151,624 New York Sire Stakes Pat Quaglietta Trot (2-year-old fillies). Frank Drucker

Beach Memories, P H Supercam, and Polak A will try to remain unbeaten in the George Morton Levy Memorial Pacing Series on Saturday at Yonkers Raceway, but Beach Memories will do it from a new barn. The 5-year-old pacer has moved from the harness racing stable of trainer Ron Burke to trainer Scott DiDomenico. Saturday's third round of the Levy Series features four divisions, with P H Supercam competing in the first division, Polak A in the third and Beach Memories in the fourth. All three horses are 2-for-2 in the series and tied for the top spot in the series standings. A trainer can enter only one horse per preliminary-round division, and later only two in each of the series final and consolation, and Burke co-owns four Levy participants - Bettor's Edge, Clear Vision, Foiled Again, and Take It Back Terry - in addition to training Beach Memories for owners Strollin Stable, AWS Stables, King McNamara, and Country Club Acres Inc. Country Club Acres' Jim Koehler said Burke suggested the barn change for Beach Memories and recommended DiDomenico. Burke trained previous Strollin Stable and Country Club Acres standout Won The West. "I'm sure if the (series) conditions were different, he'd keep the horse," Koehler said. "But he was getting concerned about being able to race all the horses if there were fewer divisions. He owns all those other horses (in the series). I don't blame him for that. He's always treated us very fairly. He's an amazing guy." Beach Memories has won two of five races this year and earned $65,300. For his career, the son of Somebeachsomewhere-Allamerican Memoir has won 16 of 61 starts and $600,404. The gelding, who captured the 2013 Pennsylvania Sire Stakes championship, was trained by Brian Brown until last November. "I don't think he's a Won The West, you don't find two or three of them, but I know he's got potential," Koehler said. "If he gets the lead, he's tough to pass. "I think the (Levy) is one of the most interesting series in harness racing," he added. "It's a lot of fun. We just hope we race well." Beach Memories won both his Levy prelims by a neck; the first in 1:52.2 and last week in 1:53. He drew post five in Saturday's third round. "It's pretty neat to get a horse like this," DiDomenico said. "The owners called me the other day and I thought they were pulling my leg. People don't usually call you with one like this. Fortunately Ronnie has a lot of quality horses and fortunately I was the one to get the call." P H Supercam drew post two in his third-round division, which includes no other horse in the Levy's top 10. He is trained by Jeff Bamond Jr. and driven by Jason Bartlett. Polak A, with Brian Sears listed to drive for trainer Tony O'Sullivan, got post three in his split, which also includes Michael's Power and Foiled Again. Michael's Power is fourth in the series standings and Foiled Again is tied for seventh with Dancin Yankee, Sapphire City, and Windsong Jack. Bettor's Edge, who is tied with Warrawee Needy for fifth in the series, headlines the remaining division, which also includes Sapphire City and Windsong Jack. Dancin Yankee and Warrawee Needy are among the horses who will attempt to beat Beach Memories in the fourth division. They drew posts one and seven, respectively. by Ken Weingartner Harness Racing Communications USTA
