by John Horne for Tioga Downs.
Fillies and Mares, Open 2 Pace ($9000) headlined the Tioga Downs card on Friday
slight betting favorite, So Nice (Mike Merton) pushed the gate open and was
loose on the lead from the outset. So Nice upped her lead to three
lengths after three-quarters in 122.4.
And Liberty (Aaron Byron) followed patiently in the loose pocket all the way to
the top of the stretch. Once the 6 year-old mare by Total Truth jumped
out of the pocket, she looked like she was shot out of a cannon. Owned by
Tracy Moss and trained by Robert Lounsbury, she would blow right by
in deep stretch for the win in 1:51.2.
And Liberty would pay $5.00 for the win. So Nice hung on for second with
Rock my World (Mike Simons) getting third.
Downs returns to live racing Saturday (May 13) at 6:50pm with a nine race card
featuring the Open Trot ($12,000).
