Don't Know Chip and Corey Braden captured Tioga Downs' $16,500 open trot on Saturday night.

As the field raced passed the half mile mark of the race in 58.1, Braden moved Don't Know Chip first up to contend head to head with Aruba Vacation by three quarters in 1:26.1.

Around the final turn, Braden asked for more from Don't Know Chip and he responded opening up to win in 1:55.3.

Spring Goal (Luke Plano) came on late to finish second, while All About Justice (Mike Simons) hung on for third.
