Accelerating clear on the backstretch in a :26.4 third quarter, Laurie Lee Poulin and Mike Deters's Prairie Jaguar ($7.70) returned to his winning ways, holding clear in the $14,000 Open 1 Pace on Sunday (June 8) afternoon at Tioga Downs.

The six-year-old Florida-sired Spy Hard gelding was eager to set an ambitious pace, but was rated by Jim Marohn, Jr. through a :56 half mile.  
 
On the backstretch, Prairie Jaguar edged clear of Electrofire (John Cummings, Jr.), while Glass Prince (Rick Dane) made a first-over rally into second.  With the remainder of the field struggling to keep pace with Prairie Jaguar through three-quarters in 1:22.4, the battle was mainly for minor spoils.  Prairie Jaguar held clear to the line, but was kept to task in his 1:51 victory, with Glass Prince holding second, and Electrofire staying on to be third.
 
The $11,000 Open 2 Pace was taken by Golden Gun ($31.00) in similar fashion, pushing clear on the backstretch en route to a 1:52.2 win with John Cummings, Jr. in the bike.
