Cold Certified won for the 2nd time in two starts in 2013, both on the 5/8th mile oval in Nichols, Ny.

Both times Corey Braden put the 4 year old son of Kadabra-I Like Stephanie on the front and both times he never looked back.

Tonight, over a tracked listed sloppy after hours of steady rain, Cold Certified wrangled the front in a quick 27.4. After backing down to the half in 57.4, Braden used another burst of speed to lengthen his lead to five thru ¾ in 1:26.1 and cruised home to a length and three quarter victory over a hard charging Windsong Hercules, who shook loose late to close for 2nd, Fool's Revenue was 3rd.

Corey Braden posted a driving triple while Bruce Clarke and Victor Kirby each secured driving doubles; Tyler Raymer had a training double.

Also taking place during the races was the Annual Miss Tioga contest. A record 19 contestants entered to battle it out for the crown. When the dust settled, Mary Katherine Julp from nearby Vestal, Ny was the winner. She currently attends UMBC studying Biology and Pre-dental.

Tioga Downs continues live racing action on Sunday, July 28th with New York Sire Stakes for 3 year old colt pacers, post time will be 1:30pm, for more information on Tioga Downs please visit us online at
