YONKERS, NY, Tuesday, October 7, 2014—A reminder from Yonkers Raceway regarding its upcoming live schedule.

The Raceway is conducting a half-dozen Sunday matinee cards—from November 9th through December 14th, inclusive—as part of a new wagering relationship with the French parimutuel agencies. The races are to be televised and wagered on through much of Europe.

First post of these trotting-dominated programs is scheduled for 11 AM ET, with more information regarding field sizes and race distances as it becomes available. Please be advised that these six Sunday cards replace five Tuesday evenings (Nov. 11th thru Dec. 9th, inclusive) on the Raceway’s live schedule.
