    AS WAS written seven short nights ago, Newborn Sassy is just better than her rivals right now.

    She proved it again last night by easily winning Yonkers Raceway’s $44,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace while also becoming the sport’s newest millionairess.

    Not even an assigned eight-hole hindrance could deter her appointed rounds here.

    Strung out early by Medusa, Newborn Sassy made the lead before a 27.2-second opening quarter-mile.

    After a rated :29.1 next station (:56.3 intermission), 6-5 favourite Magic Forces (George Brennan) tried it first-up from fifth.

    However, a :27.4 third quarter (1:24.2) dismissed that one as Newborn Sassy owned a length-and-a-half lead into the lane.

    Medusa edged out, but wasn’t close to reaching, the final margin a length in 1:52. Mach It A Par settled for the minor.

    For second choice Newborn Sassy, a five-year-old daughter of Western Ideal owned by CC Racing & Joann Looney-King and trained by Jim King junior, it was her ninth win in 27 seasonal starts, taking her earnings to $1,007,445.

    “She can race either way,” driver Jordan Stratton said. “This week, some of the better mares she’s been facing weren’t here, but she beat a good group and the eight-hole is never an easy job.”
