Yonkers, NY — A season-debuting Robyn Camden (Jim Marohn Jr., $11) proved best Friday night (Jan. 24), winning Yonkers Raceway’s $35,000 Filly and Mare Preferred Handicap Pace.
In play from post position No. 5, Robyn Camden was able to get into an early pocket after 11-10 favorite Feelin Red Hot (George Brennan) made a nasty break. From there, Robyn Camden was stalking Cay’s Blessing (Jason Bartlett) through fractions of :27.2, :56.4 and 1:25.3.
It was an antsy two-hole for Robyn Camden, who edged out early to take her shot. Robyn Camden did go by mid-lane, the final margin a half-length in 1:54.2. Rockin The Boys A (Jordan Stratton) was a three-hole third, with Made Of Jewels AS (Eric Goodell) fourth around the oval. Misbehavers Shes Pukka N (Dan Dube) and the aforementioned Feelin Red Hot were fifth and last among the half-dozen.
For fourth choice Robyn Camden, a 5-year-old daughter of Art Professor owned by Jason O’Sullivan and trained by Rene Allard, she’s off a 14-win, $192,940 season in 2019. The exacta paid $50, with the triple returning $178.
The Raceway’s mutuel windows open at 11 a.m. Saturday (Jan. 25) for Gulfstream Park’s Pegasus Day program, with first post of 11:30 a.m. The $3 million Pegasus World Cup and $1 million Pegasus World Cup Turf go as races 11 and 12, respectively.
