Tuesday night (July 7), Yonkers Raceway hosted four $35,450 New York Sire Stakes Divisions for trotting two-year-old colt and geldings and stallion Chapter Seven stole the show with his offspring winning three of the four divisions.

In the first division, Race 3, Incommunicado led from start to finish, prevailing by two-and-a-quarter lengths in 1:59. Ahundreddollarbill was second with Dees Red Delicious finishing third.

Incommunicado is a gelded son of Chapter Seven trained and driven by Ake Svanstedt and owned by Knutsson Trotting Inc. and Little E LLC.

In the second division, Race 4, Special Prosecutor held off a fast-closing Super Cruiser by a neck in 2:02.1 with Manuka being placed third after Limitless Winner was disqualified from that show spot.

Special Prosecutor is also a gelded son of Chapter Seven. He was driven to victory by Andy Miller for trainer and co-owner David Dewhurst. Philip Hale co-owns the trotter.

In the third division, Race 6, Ambassador Hanover made a strong brush to the lead around the final turn and held off Sevenshadesofgrey by a length in 1:59.1 with Steel finishing third.

Ambassador Hanover is a son of Chapter Seven trained and driven by Ake Svanstedt. Svanstedt also owns the colt along with Order By Stable and Howard Taylor.

In the final division, In The Cards sat a perfect pocket trip and prevailed by a length in 2:00.1 over pacesetter Credit Con with Fix It Up finishing third.

In The Cards is a gelded son of RC Royalty owned by trainer George Ducharme along with partners Campbell, Dickson and Cimetti with Scott Zeron the winning driver.

Tuesday’s card also featured the first Pick-5 carryover for Yonkers Raceway since returning from the coronavirus hiatus. A $5,894 carryover from Monday night produced an additional $39,291 in wagering for the Tuesday Pick 5. The winning sequence of 2-2-3-1-6 returned $462.25 for a 50-cent wager.

This week and next week, Yonkers expands to a four day race week, adding Friday nights to the Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights, first post is 7:12 p.m. (EDT) each night.
