Habitat Wins an Eventful Yonkers Trot

YONKERS, NY – You had one top horse break stride and another get disqualified from second and placed fifth after a rare drivers’ objection. This Yonkers Trot had a little bit of everything, from controversy to a blow-out win from a horse that was lost in the shadow of his more highly regarded stablemate.

Crazy Wow was supposed to be the horse that would give Ron Burke a win in the Yonkers Trot, but he went on a break at the start and finished last. But for the Burke stable and those who played the favored entry, Habitat saved the day with a 3 1/2-length win in the $500,000 race Saturday night.
