Caviart Luca won the Yonkers Raceway conditioned harness racing feature on Apr. 20 with a textbook final quarter first-up sweep.
George Brennan was unable to win the early pace duel with the gelding and dropped him into third. He sat there through splits of :26.4 and :55.4 set by Runrunjimmydunn N (Scott Zeron) but pulled out approaching three-quarters and advanced quickly.
Caviart Luca reached the leader's sulky as they completed the third panel in 1:24.2 and edged out an advantage as the field headed down the lane. Pocket-sitter Fizzing N took his shot in the final eighth (Jim Marohn Jr.), and Flying Finn N slid up the rail late, but Caviart Luca consolidated the 1:53 victory under mild urging. Flying Finn N got up for second, and Fizzing N was third.
