In Your Room captures Tioga Downs Saturday night feature

In Your Room and Mike Simons
Mike Simons and In Your Room captured the $16,000 open trot on Saturday night at Tioga Downs.

Simons and In Your Room got away third from post position number three as Cold Certified (Aaron Byron), the 1-2 betting favorite, cut through fractions of 27, 56, and 1:24.1. Around the final turn, Simons and In Your Room found themselves four lengths off the lead with Cold Certified controlling the race over a pocket sitting Fox Valley Smarty (Corey Braden). Down the stretch, Simons pulled In Your Room to the outside and she responded trotting a final quarter in 28.4 to get up for a length and three quarter victory in 1:53.4. The win was the sixth of the year in 20 seasonal starts for the 5-year-old daughter of Cr Excalibur – Chris Image for the Classico Stables and trainer Gail Wrubel.  Cold Certified (Aaron Byron) hung on for second, while Fox Valley Smarty was third to round out the 3-5-6 trifecta good for $92.00.

Fern Paquet Jr. recorded a driving triple on the night's 10-race card, while Jimmy Marohn Jr. and Corey Braden each posted doubles.
