News And Notes
Speaking of drivers, Brian Sears is saying he is very much at home being a Yonkers regular. Sears abandoned the New Meadowlands for more lucrative purses on the four-turn mile in New York. So far this year, Sears is winning at a 27.3-percent clip and sits atop the driver standing, according to USTA reporter Ken Weingartner.
“Things are going well,” Sears said. “You have to get the opportunities and sometimes you get on a little roll but I’m not going to keep up that pace.”
