I'm wondering the same thing. By rule, when should they stop wagering, and when do they stop wagering. I mean, its probably not a track rule, its gotta be a state rule that defines when to shut off wagering, right?

I also wonder about Maywood, where the gate pulls away even earlier than at Yonkers.

Based on recent events it would seem that YR stops wagering when the horses reach the starting line. And if they stopped wagering when the gate actually opens, it would cost them an unknown but decent amount of handle.

At some tracks, either a bell or a buzzer sounds from the tote system when the race closes. We would need someone ontrack at Yonkers to tell us if that is the case there, and when it happens.

Sorry I can't answer the question.
