New York-bred colts barrage Yonkers

On Tuesday, June 14, nine Hambo-hopefuls will go to the gate among seven divisions of the New York Sires Stakes for colt trotters at Yonkers Raceway. The first two divisions will be held before the betting program.  

In the first division, the only hopeful in here is Rarely Ordinary (Conway Hall). He has had only one third in one start and must improve here to beat fellow state-breds.  

The second division also has no betting and features to eligibles. They are Evil Urges (Cash Hall) and House On Fire (Conway Hall). “Evil” has won two of five for Illinois-trainer Homer Hochstetler and is the top money-winner in this field. “Fire” is a Ray Schnittker-trained hopeful that is getting better with each start, having won two of seven in the early season.  

In the third division, wagering begins and Whitewater Rapids (Credit Winner) and Market Rebound (Credit Winner) are the eligibles in here. “Rapids” finally got a good post and showed his stuff after some troubled trips that showed promise. He is ready to add another win here, as “Rebound” still searches for the winner’s circle.  

New Zion (Conway Hall) and Typical Newyorker (Conway Hall) are both eligibles in the fourth division. This is a very even field which will probably be won by a smooth gait and a good trip, two things the eligibles should depend upon.  

Johnny B Kemp (Credit Winner) is the only hopeful in the fifth division and although he is the morning-line favorite he has been disappointing in his first two starts. Trainer Jimmy Takter may have him sent to the lead to try to steal this one, otherwise it could be another dull effort.  

In the sixth division, Tiger’s Too Good (Conway Hall) is the only eligible and he seems to tower over the competition here.

There are no hopefuls in the last division.
