Freshman Fillies at Tioga on Monday


The long weekend of NYSS events wraps up with a rare Monday evening card on July 29 at Tioga Downs. 

24 talented two-year-old pacing fillies split into three $36,378 divisions.

Race three is the first sire stake and Scandalicious is the 5/2 morning line choice. This American Ideal filly has two wins in the NY program already, including a 1:56.2 Yonkers score. Andrew Mc Carthy is in to drive for trainer Scott DiDomenico and owner JFE Enterprise, LLC. 
JK Molly sets a new track record in the Tompkins Geers


The middle division features the Art Major lass JK Molly, who lowered the Tioga track record for her age and sex to 1:52.2 in last week's Tompkins-Geers Grand Circuit stakes. She races out of the Linda Toscano barn with her go-to driver Tim Tetrick named. The 3 Brothers Stables of New York, New York own the fleet filly. 

Ali Blue is offered a shot at redemption in the eighth race. She and her legion of fans, which sent her off at $.15 on a dollar in the Tomkins-Geers, met with disappointment when she broke a hopple soon after the start and had to be pulled up by Yannick Gingras. Owners Christina Takter, John & Jim Fielding and R A W Equine, INC, hope she returns to her previous perfect form for Gingras and trainer Jimmy Takter on Monday.  

The supporting card features five divisions of Excelsior stakes for pacing fillies. First post on Monday is 6:50pm. Visit the Tioga website for more details.
