Winbak Dimensions captures Tioga Downs Sunday feature

2008 Tioga Downs Pacer of the Year Winbak Dimensions captured his first victory of the year in the $15,000 Open Handicap Pace on Sunday afternoon.

Corey Braden sent Winbak Dimensions from the two hole to capture a pocket ride behind post time favorite Bullville Powerful (Jim Taggart Jr.) through fractions of 27.3, 55.3, and 1:24.1.

As the field rounded the final turn, Braden sent Winbak Dimensions to the outside and battled Bullville Powerful to the wire getting up to win by a neck in 1:52.1.

Although it was the first win in 10 seasonal starts, the 7-year old son of Village Jove-Exact Dimenions has banked more than $27,000, and has missed the board only twice.

Jim Perry trains Winbak Dimensions for William and Jack Heinz of Ohio.

Bullville Powerful (Jim Taggart Jr.) hung on for second, while Anvilanunoit N (Bruce Ranger) got up for third.

Jimmy Marohn Jr. and Howard Parker each posted driving doubles on the afternoon’s 12-race card.
