Harness racing fans were treated to twenty of the sports best horses in training and two fantastic races on Sunday afternoon (June 10) at Tioga Downs, that included the $184,000 Artiscape Pace and

In the $184,000 Artiscape Pace, Dreamfair Eternal and Jody Jamieson left from post position number one and got away sixth as Anndrovette (Tim Tetrick) surged to the lead from post position number nine.

As the field passed the quarter in 26.1, Brian Sears was forced to the front with Put On A Show after a failed attempt to tuck in third. The outer flow developed with Chancey Lady (David Miller) pulling first over from fifth supplying a perfect second over trip for Dreamfair Eternal and Jody Jamieson.

The field tripped the half mile mark in 53.4 and continued a heavy pace by three quarters in 1:21. Around the final turn Chancey Lady continued her impressive first over grind, but the biggest threat was on her back with Dreamfair Eternal exploding off of Dave Miller's helmet to pace clear of the field in the stretch.

The mile of 1:49 established a new track and stakes record that Dreamfair Eternal had held in partnership with 2011's Artiscape Champion, Anndrovette.

Rocklamation (Ron Pierce) opted to sit in along the rail third during the mile and found room late to be second, while Drop The Ball (Yannick Gingras) closed from ninth at the three quarter pole to be third.

The win was the first of the year for the 8-year old daughter of Camluck - J Cs Nathalie, who is owned by John Lamers and is trained by Patrick Fletcher.
