Yonkers, NY --- Yonkers Trot winner Six Pack returned to the scene of his handiwork Tuesday night (Sept. 11), dominating a division of Yonkers Raceway’s $172,000 New York Sire Stakes Milt Taylor Trot for 3-year-old colts and geldings.

Six Pack was much the best in Tuesday's New York Sire Stakes action at Yonkers Raceway.
Six Pack (Ake Svanstedt, $2.10) found himself coupled with Trot runner-up Helpisontheway (Jim Morrill Jr.) in the $86,750 second state-bred soiree.

The pole-sitting latter stung Six Pack — from post position three — through a :27.1 opening quarter-mile. Six Pack then rated a :30 next subsection before finishing it off in 1:54.3. The widening margin, four lengths in and out of the final turn, closed to 1-1/2 lengths at the tape.

Helpisontheway barely held second, with I'm The Muscle (Jason Bartlett) third. The Veteran (Jordan Stratton) and Winning Shadow (Mike Simons) came away with the remainder.

For Six Pack, a Muscle Mass colt co-owned by his trainer-driver with Little E LLC, Stall Kaimer and Lars Berg, it was his seventh win in 10 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $7.50 and the triple returned $17.

Tuesday night’s $85,250 opening Sire Stakes event saw Perlucky (Trond Smedshammer, $32.20) roll pace-setting Clive Bigsby (Bartlett) from second-over.

Away a bit tardy from post position two, Perlucky watched as pole-sitting Clive Bigsby seated Purpose Blue Chip (Dan Daley) and Lindsey’s Pride (Brent Holland) jumped it off.

After early intervals of :28.1 and :58.1, Perlucky hitched a ride behind Don (Stratton) going toward a 1:26.4 three-quarters.

Clive Bigsby owned a 1-1/2 length lead into the lane, but Perlucky was poised. With minimal urging, he went by, winning by a length in a life-best 1:56.1. Clive Bigsby saved second over a needing-room Purpose Blue Chip, with 13-10 choice Cruising in Style (Morrill) a belated fourth.

For sixth choice Perlucky, a son of Lucky Chucky trained by his driver for owner Purple Haze Stables, it was his second win in 10 seasonal tries. The exacta paid $99, the triple returned $348 and the superfecta paid $1,209. Ironically, both of Perlucky's wins have come at odds of 15-1.

New York Sire Stakes downstate preliminaries conclude with Friday night’s (Sept. 14) $156,200 Lew Barasch Trot for 2-year-old colts and geldings.
