Yonkers, NY---Odds-on favorite Regil Elektra (Brian Sears, $2.70) was more than good enough Friday night (Jan. 8), winning Yonkers Raceway’s featured $20,000 conditioned pace for the ladies.

In play from post position No. 3, Regil Elektra was looped leaving by Cracker Coffee (Tyler Buter) directly to her outside. The people’s preference then took over before a :28.1 opening quarter-mile. From there, intervals of :57.2, 1:26.1 and 1:54.2 made her a safe winner.

Rockn Ruby N (Dan Dube) wound up a three-hole second—beaten by 1-1/4-lengths with Cracker Coffee, Apricot Sour (Jason Bartlett) and Nippy W Hanover (Jordan Stratton) rounding out the payees. Bartlett has seven wins through the first two programs.

For Regil Elektra, a 6-year-old daughter of Mach Three owned by Fred Monteleone and trained by Keith Armer, she won her seasonal debut. The exacta paid $6.80, the triple (three wagering favorites in order) returned $17.20 and the superfecta paid $114.50.

The Raceway’s season continues Saturday night (first post 7:10 PM), Sunday afternoon (12:10 p.m.), along with Monday (7:10 p.m.) and Tuesday (1 p.m.).
