YONKERS, NY, Monday, July 23, 2018--A sort of quirk in the schedule finds the statebred frosh fillies back for second time in 18 evenings, with Yonkers Raceway hosting Tuesday night's (July 24th) $159,000 New York Sire Stakes Frank Becerra Pace. Post time for the dozen-race card s 6:50 PM, with the sire stakes event going as races 7 (purse $78,800) and 8 (purse $80,200), respectively. The opening event finds So Awesome (Tim Tetrick, post 4) going after a Westchester repeat. The daughter of So Surreal went the distance (1:55.3) as the 3-4 favorite the last time she hit town from this exact same venue. The lass, who has that lone win in three tries, is owned by William Hartt and trained by Scott DiDomenico. Crazy Cute (Jordan Stratton, post 5) chased So Awesome around the oval from the pocket, while Boogie Roll (Tyler Buter, post 7) was a 12-1 upstetter when the ladies visited Tioga (1:54). American Marilyn (Jason Bartlett, post 3) made an early break in her stateside/statebred debut (race won by Boogie Roll). Tuesday night's second and final division has St. Somewhere (Yannick Gingras, post 5) eying a sire stakes hat trick. She had no eight-hole issues here, finishing what she started by open lengths (1:54.4). She returns off a Tioga win (1:52.2) The daughter of American Ideal is co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke, Phil Collura, J&T Silva-Purnel & Libby and Weaver Bruscemi. Hurrikane Norakane (Dan Dube, post 3) was placed first the last time this caravan stopped by, while Zero Tolerance (George Brennan, post 8) was snapped late at Tioga by St. Somewhere in her first sire stakes try. Gia's Surreal (Bartlett, post 1) has been a bridesmaid in her two Empire soirees. by Frank Drucker, for Yonkers Raceway

The Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) has numerous breedings for harness racing stallions standing in various states. These breedings are being sold and not auctioned to protect the value of the stallions. Some stallions are Yankee Cruiser, So Sureal, Shark Gesture, Rocknroll Dance, Rock N Roll Heaven, McArdle, Lucky Chucky, Jurgen Hanover, Big Stick Lindy, Real Desire and many more. This is SRF's most important and consistent source of funding, which comes from yearly and lifetime breeding sales and donations. The revenue generated helps provide for the care, boarding, feeding, veterinary, farrier, dental, worming, rehabilitation and re-training of 198+ Standardbreds, 125 of which are permanently retired due to age and/or injury. This is SRF's 26th year as the only organization solely dedicated to the Standardbred breed, the only one of its kind also providing full care for horses when adoption is not possible, and following their welfare in every home diligently for life. SRF has served thousands of Standardbreds, and helped hundreds of children through its award winning programs. Breeding donations, and SRF's sale of such gifts make a substantial difference. To donate or purchase a breeding please contact Tammy Hollock at 732-446-4422 or email accounting@srfmail.com. SRF is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and gifts to SRF are tax-deductible.
