Dream Out Loud N picked off favoured Bettors Edge Saturday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's $33,000 Open Handicap Pace.
Assigned post position two, Dream Out Loud N and Matt Kakaley worked out a pocket trip behind 2-5 choice Bettors Edge. That one threw down intervals of :28.1, :57.2 and 1:25.2. All the while, he was pestered by a fumbly-gaited, but persistent, longshot Eddie Sweat (Jason Bartlett).
Bettors Edge (George Brennan) eventually dismissed that one, taking a length lead into the lane. However, Dream Out Loud N was just minding his business. He angled out and easily went by, the margin a couple of lengths in 1:53.3. Bettors Edge held second, with Dallenbach Hanover (Brian Sears), Lumberjack Willie (Jordan Stratton) and Sapphire City (Eric Carlson) settling for the remainder.
For Dream Out Loud N, a seven-year-old Down Under Bettors Delight gelding owned by Joe Muscara and trained by Darren Cassar, he returned $18 for a season-debuting victory.
