It's like a theme show, with another Yonkers Raceway Ladies Night Friday in the third round of the Blue Chip Matchmaker for Open pacing mares

.

As was the case in the first two rounds, five $40,000 divisions went postward.

The song remains the same for See You At Peelers (Brian Sears, $2.10), who won her third race in as many series/seasonal starts.

Leaving from post position No. 5 in the fourth division, the people's preference worked around Oceans Motion (George Brennan) before a :27.1 opening quarter-mile. From there, a dawdling :30-second next station (:57.1 half) ended what minimal suspense there may or not have been. From there, a 1:25.2 three-quarters and a 1:52.4 mile resulted in a comfy, two and three-quarter length victory.

P Note Blue Chip (Tim Tetrick) was a first-up second, with Billmar Scooter (Eric Goodell) and Oceans Motion completing the triple and superfecta, respectively.

'Peelers,' a four-year-old statebred daughter of Bettors Delight co-owned by breeder Christina Takter, Jim and John Fielding and trained by Jimmy Takter, is now 25-for-28 in her career ($1,546,900). The exacta paid $9.90, the triple returned $24 and the superfecta paid $45.50.

The evening's other Matchmakers were summarized as such:

Odds-on favourite Ginger And Fred (Jason Bartlett, $3.40) two-moved to secure the lead, then was a handy, three and three-quarter length winner in 1:53. Fox Valley Sage (Cat Manzi) was a first-up second, with Pancleefandarpels (Mark MacDonald) third.

Ginger And Fred, a six-year-old daughter of Real Artist trained by Ron Burke for co-owners Howard Taylor, Robert Feldman, Edwin Gold and Jerry Silva, is now three-for-11 this season. The exacta paid $11, with the triple returning $40.40.

Series-debuting Lightning Treasure (Brennan, $13.80) sat loosely-pocketed to 1-5 choice Chancey Lady (Tetrick), then rolled by, getting the fave by a half-length in Mystical Diva (Sears) was a best-of-the-rest third.

Lightning Treasure, a seven-year-old daughter of Western Ideal owned by Lightning Stable and trained by Keith Armer, is now two-for-four this season. The exacta paid $21.60, with the triple returning $59.

A first-up Western Silk (Brennan, $3.80) wore down the in-play-early Rocklamation (Sears) by in 1:52.4. Krispy Apple (Tetrick) closed the gap into the first two, but was third nonetheless.

Western Silk, a five-year-old Western Terror miss co-owned by Ross Warriner and Tom Hill and trained by Andrew Harris, is now two-for-three in this series and on the season. The exacta paid $6.30, with the triple returning $11.60.

Anndrovette (Tetrick, $2.10) retook from Symphony In Motion (Sears), rated a :57.3 middle half, then held sway. She defeated Symphony In Motion by in three lengths in 1:53.1, with Hulas Z Tam (Pat Lachance) closing inside for third.

Anndrovette, a five-year-old statebred daughter of Riverboat King co-owned by Bamond Racing and Joe Davino and trained by PJ Fraley, is three-for-six this season. The exacta paid $13.20, with the triple returning $61.50.

Friday's $33,000 Open Trot was won by a repeating Flex The Muscle (Jeff Gregory, $16.80) in 1:56.4.
