Shady City wins Tioga Downs feature again!

Shady City (Larry Staulbaum) would take the Open Pace ($12,000) on Sunday (July 9) for the third straight time.  All together the 7 year-old has won five straight.

Time Out I'm Tired (Jim Marohn Jr.) would jump out of the gate first but Fire Your Guns (Mike SImons), would work hard to take the lead before the first quarter.  Fire Your Guns (American Ideal) would take all the early fractions :27.1, :54.2, 1:21.3.

Time Out I'm Tired (Artiscape) would come out the pocket and challenge at the top of the stretch.  Shady City (Metropolitan), who is owned by Staulbaum and trained by Kimberly Asher, would then make a three wide move in the stretch to blast by and win in a lifetime best of 1:50.1.  Shady City ($5.90) would hold off a late charge by second best, Andreios Kardia (Aaron Byron).  Time Out I'm Tired would hang on for third.

Staulbaum would win two more on the card.  He led Barbarian ($9.60) to victory, hanging on to beat Wellwesaid (Mike Merton).

Staulbaum would get his thrid win with Winyard Hanover ($20.60) passing Lyons Johnny late in the stretch.

Tioga Downs returns to live action on Friday starting at 6:50pm
