Encore Racing’s Yankee Injunuity, turning back to a turf-sprint after seven straight grass races at one mile and one-sixteenths, came fastest of all through the stretch to win the five and one-half-furlongs $52,250 Don Ciccio Stakes at Hawthorne Race Course.

Sent off at odds of 33-1, the 4-year-old son of Yankee Victor is trained by James McMullen and was ridden flawlessly to victory by Jose Ferrer. The time for the race, restricted to 3-year-olds and up, was 1:04.64. It was a half-length back to Chihulykee, who in turn was a neck ahead of Rock Gold. Piratesonthelake cut most of the fractions before tiring late and finishing fourth.

The 8-5 post time favorite, Myboycharlie, the only 3-year-old in the field, never fired and finished last of 12.

“He got bumped a little bit early,” said Chris Emigh, Myboycharlie’s jockey. “But after that he never really fired at all.”

For Yankee Injunuity, it was his fifth win of the year and increased his 2008 earnings to $110,729.

Hawthorne Race Course began its Fall/Winter Thoroughbred meet on Friday, September 26, 2008 and will continue through January 11, 2009. Post time on Fridays through November 28 will be at 2:35 pm central time. Post time on all other cards will be 1:35 pm central time. Dark days will be Mondays and Tuesdays. We are located at 3501 S.
