Just reward for the faithful

    PERFECT BET

    FOR someone who’s on the verge of claiming another local driving title, Jason Bartlett had his share of Yonkers Raceway non-believers last night.

    Those disciples who did keep the faith were handsomely rewarded, with Bartlett winning five of the dozen races, including some at very un-Bartlett-esque prices.

    It started innocently enough, with favourites Marvalous Jet ($5.10) and American Island ($3.20).

    Then, the double-digit parade took over. A pocketed I Dance U Prance ($11.40) was up at the wire before Day Trade Hanover ($57) prevailed from a three-hole.

    Bartlett rounded out his quintet when Perfect Bet ($30) left sharply, ripping out of the pocket to win in 1:54.4.

    The Bartlett 7-8 late double returned a holiday-bill-paying $608.
