YONKERS, NY, Friday, July 28, 2017—A reminder regarding Yonkers Raceway’s matinee sojourn this Sunday (July 30th), with a 11:30 AM first post. It’s the third of eight consecutive Sundays.

It’s a dozen-race card, with races 5 (post time 12:50 PM) through 8 (2:20 PM) of the ‘French’ theme, as in overflow fields at the mile-and-one-quarter distance. The $68,000 Open Handicap goes as the fifth race, with last week’s blowout winner, Homicide Hunter (Brian Sears, post 8), leading a 12-horse ensemble.    
August Sunday post times are (tentatively) listed at 12:30 PM (updates if/when necessary).

The ‘New York, New York Double’ is also back this Sunday, including Saratoga’s 3rd race (post time 2:07 PM) and Yonkers’ 10th race (post time 3 PM).

Final post for Sunday is scheduled for 3:40 PM.
