Judge Joe wins Yonkers Trot

Aug 30, 2009 - 3:32 AM YONKERS, N.Y.(AP) -- Judge Joe beat Neighsay Hanover by 3 3/4 lengths to win the $750,774 Yonkers Trot on Saturday night.

Judge Joe went wire-to-wire for the win in 1:56 1/5 and paid $3.40. Ron Pierce guided the colt quickly from the rail and shrugged off all his challengers for the easy win.

There won't be a triple crown winner as Muscle Hill, who won the Hambletonian, bypassed the Yonkers Trot to easily capture the $200,000 American National at Balmoral Park in Illinois tonight.

Windsong Soprano took the $367,985 Hudson Filly Trot upseting favorite Yursa Hanover, who broke stride on the first turn.

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
