NYSS prep races highlight Friday night card at Tioga


A duo of NYSS prep races highlighted Tioga Downs' Friday night, 12-race card, with Jamie Sue posting the fastest time of the night.

Jim Meittinis sent Jamie Sue to the front after the field went by the opening quarter in a soft 28.4.

The duo then cut through fractions of 58 and 1:27 before heavy pressure was applied by the first-over Marinade Hanover (Sam Schillaci).

Meittinis had to ask Jamie Sue for all she had down the stretch to fight back and find the wire first in 1:54.2.

Mark Ford trains the 3-year-old daughter of Art Major – Road To Pandalay for Robert Di Nozzi of Ossining, NY.

Brownsville Bomber (Fern Paquet Jr.) was victorious in 1:55.4 in the second division of the NYSS preps on Friday night for trainer Ed Hart.

Fern Paquet, Jr. posted a driving triple on the night's 12-race card, while Jim Meittinis and Jim Marohn Jr. each collected two driving victories.

Tioga Downs continues live racing on Saturday night (May 12) at 6:50 pm with a 10-race card.
