John Horne for Tioga Downs.
Soph (Mike Merton) beats four other mares to take the Fillies and Mares Open 2
at Tioga Downs (May 19).
Soph, a 7 year-old Admirals Galley mare went right to the front. Owned by
Mark Wamp and trained by Todd Buter, Super Soph would hit the first quarter in
27.3 and never look back, winning gate to wire in 1:52.1. Super Soph
paid $14.60 for the upset win. A Wish For Wings (John Cummings Jr.)
followed in the pocket the whole way and finished second. Kruella (Mike
Simons) finished third.
Downs is scheduled to start their 10 race card at 6:50 tomorrow but will follow
the live showing of the Preakness.
