E Street Plan takes second leg of the Nichols True Value Late Closer


E Street Plan and Mike Simons took home Saturday night's second division of the Nichols True Value late closer at Tioga Downs.

The duo left alertly from post position number eight and relinquished the lead to pacesetter Eastend Eddie (Sean Bier) through an opening quarter of 26.4.

Simons then let Eastend Eddie do the heavy lifting through fractions of 55.2 and 1:23.2 before pulling around the final turn to challenge in the stretch.

Down the stretch Eastend Eddie reached for more, but E Street Plan proved too strong capturing victory in 1:51.

The mile established a new lifetime mark for the 3-year old son of Rocknroll Hanover – Plan On It, who posted his fifth win in ten seasonal starts for trainer Chuck Connor Jr.
