YONKERS, NY, Tuesday, January 7, 2020--Yonkers Raceway's Tuesday night (Jan. 7th) harness racing Pick 5 wager had some old money and some new shooters.

A $4,751.30 carryover and a $15,000 guaranteed pool resulted in $22,253 of fresh investments.

The sequence proved rather formful until 18-1 shot Be Best (Brent Holland, $38.80) rallied to win the concluding leg going away in 1:54.4.

The winning combination of 6/3/1/1/5 returned $586.50 for every correct half-a-buck wager.

As a reminder, Yonkers' Pick 5 wager now encompasses races 5 through 9 nightly.

A night after Jim Marohn Jr. won four races to begin the Raceway's 2020 season, Jason Bartlett did him one better, with five winners during the dozen-race card.

Note the Raceway's usual five-program-per-week schedule (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday) has returned, though with a new first post of 7:05 PM.
