Regil Elektra was able to get to Sell A Bit N in a battle of two “figure” horses Friday night, winning Yonkers Raceway’s $32,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace.
In play early from penultimate post position five, second choice Regil Elektra and driver Jason Bartlett made the first lead. She then saw 3-5 fave Sell A Bit N (Jordan Stratton), from her ordered outside venue, move past.
Sell A Bit N led the way through a :27.1 opening quarter-mile and :56.3 half, seeing no pressure until Jungle Genie N (Brian Sears) came out from fourth down the backside. That one never reached the leading lass at the three-quarter pole in 1:26.
Sell A Bit N owned a length-and-a-half lead into the lane before Regil Elektra ducked inside. The latter won an elongated battle by a nose in 1:54. Pole-assigned Daut Full (Tyler Buter) was a best-of-the-rest third as the 57-1 rank outsider, with Request for Parole (George Brennan) and Rockn Ruby N (Dan Dube) settling for the remainder.
For Regil Elektra, a six-year-old daughter of Mach Three owned by Fred Monteleone and trained by Keith Armer, it was her fourth win in eight seasonal starts. She paid $5.90 to win.
