Narcian Jewel (Mike Merton) steals the harness racing Fillies and Mares Open II on Friday night at Tioga Downs. Tempus Seelster (Tom Jackson) would forge to the lead just before the first -quarter (26.3). Shutthefrontdoor (Mike SImons) would be parked out first-over and would duel with Tempus Seelster all the way to three-quarters.

Narcian Jewel ($12.00) who is trained by Al Annunziata would go three-wide at the top of the stretch. Owned by Blindswitch Racing Stable, Dolne FM Services, Frascella and Farina, the 6 year-old mare by Shadow Play would charge right by to win in 1:52.1. K J's Caroline (Jim Taggart Jr.) would come on late to finish second. Goldstar Rockette (Aaron Byron) would end up third.

Merton would have two more winners on the night. His first win was during race two with Highly Thought Of ($9.40) holding off the late running Always Dee One (Jim Taggart Jr.) in 1:53.1.

Merton's third win came with Caviar Hall ($13.00) taking the 3 year-old filly from fifth to first in the stretch just nipping Just Like Bud (Corey Braden) in 1:59.3.

Tioga Downs return to action Saturday night with a 10 race card starting at 6:50 P.M.
