Four Straight For In Secret
Aug 27

In Secret (George Brennan) gave nobody else a chance this afternoon, winning Yonkers Raceway’s $50,000 Open Handicap Trot to score his fourth straight win.

With a seven horse field (after a defection), the weekly trotting feature went at the flat mile. The scratch moved the eight-hole assigned In Secret in one notch, and he was long gone (:27.4, :56.4, 1:24.4, 1:54.1). The life best effort was also the fastest local trot mile of the season.

Taco Tuesday (Jordan Stratton) tried to stay within sniffing distance from a loose pocket, but tired. In Secret, dismissed at 12-1 in winning a week ago, fooled very few here. He opened a trio of lengths in and out the final turn, winning by 3¼ lengths.

Georgie’s Pockets (Jim Marohn Jr.) extricated himself from third to chase home the runaway, with Dewycolorintheline (Jeff Gregory), Taco Tuesday and Sumatra (Eric Goodell) rounding out the payees.

For In Secret, a five-year-old Dewycheatumnhowe gelding co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke, J&T; Silva Stables, Larry Karr and Weaver Bruscemi, it was his seventh win in 18 seasonal starts. The partners purchased the OSS graduate from Per Henriksen and partners.

Sunday’s installment of the ‘New York, New York Double’ offered a winning combination of 5-Portfolio Manager (Saratoga’s 3rd race) and 2-Madman Hall (Yonkers’ 5th race) returning $8 for every correct $1 wager. Total pool was $5,688. Note the Raceway’s post time next Sunday (Sept. 3rd) is 12:30 p.m.
