YONKERS, NY, Monday, December 12, 2016—This Sunday (Dec. 18th) brings the end of Yonkers Raceway’s live season, and—not coincidentally—the final 2016 rendition of the ‘New York, New York Double’.
With Yonkers’ first post at 1 PM sharp, the Sunday’s sequence begins with Aqueduct’s third race (post time 1:18 PM), then our second race (post time 1:30 PM).
The ‘New York, New York Double’ is a cooperative effort between the New York Racing Association (NYRA), Yonkers Raceway and their respective horsemen.
Past performance pages for these races shall again be made available in all corresponding on-track and simulcast programs. The ‘New York, New York Double,’ also available through Empire City Bets, is a one dollar minimum wager and an 18.5 percent takeout rate.
