A Holland hat trick…plus one

Yonkers, NY – Brent Holland threw down the gauntlet entering Yonkers Raceway final weekend of the season, winning four races during Friday night’s (Dec. 14) 10-race card.

The Holland highlight reel began rather innocently when even-money Lone Raider ($4) went the distance in the $18,750, fourth-race claiming handicap pace (1:53.1).

He then broke out the bombardier, with 38-1 Amateur Hour ($79.50) closing from sixth off the final turn to defeat 22-1 Ella Michelle A (Eric Goodell) in the $29,000, sixth-race pace (1:54.2). Those two prices combined for a $721 exacta, $2,691 triple and $19,040 superfecta (base $2 payout).

Holland came right back in the $23,000, seventh-race pace, again closing from sixth, this time with All About Madi ($8.30) in 1:54.1. It was the 25th career win for the 5-year-old daughter of Brandon’s Cowboy, owned and trained by Brittany Robertson.

Tired of those come-from-behind tactics, Holland and Vague Traces ($10.20) finished what he started in the $23,000 pacing finale (1:53.3).

The Raceway wraps its 2018 season Saturday night (Dec. 15) with a first-post time of 6:50 p.m. before a ‘French’ Sunday matinee (Dec. 16, first post 11:45 a.m).
