The daughter of Gamblers Dream settled off a hotly contested pace in which Derek Delight parked Angelwithanattitude, while Seboomook Fool Yah gathered momentum following a brisk half-mile in 54.3 seconds. Seboomook Fool Yah swept by the leaders to three-quarters in 1:24 and opened up four lengths at the wire.
Trained by Wayne Givens, Seboomook Fool Yah notched her seventh win of the year and broke one of the longest standings records at Harrington, which was previously held by Ireneonthemove (1:52.3) set in 2006.
Victor Kirby had four winners on the program, one of which was aboard the red hot My Ideal Hanover ($2.80), who prevailed in 1:52.4 for her fourth straight win in the $17,000 Mares Open. Owned by Jason Johnson, the 5-year-old Western Ideal mare was a front-stepping winner over Springforth and Grandview Hanover. Trained by Jay Gannon, My Ideal Hanover boosted her seasonal bankroll to nearly $50,000.
Davis had a driving triple. Jon Roberts had a double.

Tall Cotton hustled to the lead from post 6, then dug in late to capture Tuesday’s $18,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows. Tall Cotton, who had been performing most recently at Yonkers, blazed through three-quarters in a demanding 1:23.4, making him vulnerable to the first-over challenge of Tamarind. But when Dave Palone asked Tall Cotton for late trot, the 8-year-old Revenue S-B Cor Peatra gelding responded, holding off Tamarind by a head in 1:53.1. Mike The Trader closed well at 25-1 for show. Ron Burke trains Tall Cotton, who extended his career bankroll to $562,431, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, Edwin Gold and Howard Taylor. Mike Wilder and Palone each drove four winners on the 15-race card.
The 1:58.1 freshman filly trotting record set by Rose Run Keepsake and Steve Carter in 2008 was equaled on Tuesday in Northfield Park’s sixth race. First time starter Youre’re Majestic appeared to be an unlikely candidate to equal a track record. The program showed her only line as a qualifier, trotting in 2:07.2. But when the horses crossed the finish, she was in front and no other 2-year-old filly has ever trotted the Flying Turns faster. Gloria Gillis owns You’re Majestic. Trainer Ladarrius Whitaker called upon Ronnie Wrenn Jr. for the winning drive. You’re Majestic (Majestic Son-You’re Adorable) started from post four. She sat in a stalking position and let her competition carve ambitious fractions of :28.4, :58.4 and 1:28.2. Wrenn tipped her inside at the top of the stretch and You’re Majestic responded like an experienced horse and bested her competition by a quarter-length in 1:58.1. You’re Majestic was the only freshman in the race and returned $27.40 to win. The win was one of six victories on the night for Ronnie Wrenn Jr.
Due to the severe weather, Scioto Downs cancelled the last five races on the Tuesday night card.
Jefferson Tare continued his winning ways at the Hippodrome 3R Tuesday, posting his fifth straight victory in a 1:58 romp for driver Pascal Berube. Leaving from post three in the ninth race pacing feature, Berube sent Jefferson Tare to the lead and the duo never looked back. They cut fractions of :29.2, 1:00 and 1:29.1 and opened up on the field by two lengths at the top of the stretch and pulled away to win by seven open lengths at the finish. Ladylyonne (Stephane Gendron), the lone filly in the field, was second with Snipper Phil (Marie Claude Auger) third. It was the fifth win in six starts this year for Jefferson Tare. The 3-year-old gelded son of Jereme's Jet is trained by Pierre Leclerc, who co-owns Jefferson Tare with Gina Bragagnolol. He went off as the overwhelming 1-5 wagering favorite and paid $2.40 to win. Also of note, in the sixth race feature trot, Guy Gagnon’s Domino Cybele led from start to finish by 1-1/2 lengths in 2:01.4. It was the fourth win in five starts for Domino Cybele, a 5-year-old gelding by Victory’s Force. He paid $2.70 to win as the betting favorite.
