A duo of New York Sire Stakes 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.
