The second Sunday matinee card of the season is set for Yonkers Raceway this Sunday, January 15, with an early 11:30 AM first race post time. The “New York, New York Double” featuring Aqueduct‘s third race, the 44th running of the Busanda Stakes, and the sixth race at Yonkers, a mile and 1/4 trotting affair, will makes its ’17 debut. Libby’s Tail with Irad Ortiz, Jr. up from post three, is the 6-5 morning line favorite at the Big A, while leading driver Jason Bartlett is in the sulky behind the 8-5 favorite Lo Rail Crossing from post position one in the Yonkers leg.
Then, it’s on to Dan Rooney’s Sports Bar at Empire City Casino for the NFL playoffs.
