YONKERS, NY – In The Arsenal and Betting Exchange went postward as a coupled entry in the $300,000 Art Rooney Final for three-year-old colt pacers Saturday night at Yonkers Raceway, but what happened in the race will likely be remembered for how it ended. Bizarre. Strange. Odd. Perplexing. Any one of those would sum it up.
Both had the lead at various points, and were actually in an interesting battle in the stretch. It looked as though In The Arsenal, driven by Brian Sears, would win easily, but he started to bear out and took some funny steps. But he was able to hold off Betting Exchange, driven by David Miller, to win by a head.
