All Munkey Business and John Plutino captured Saturday night’s $10,000 featured condition trot at Tioga Downs. Plutino got All Munkey Business away in the pocket as Prairie Big John (Jim Marohn Jr.) put up fractions of 28.3, 56.3, and 1:24.4. Around the final turn, Prairie Big John began to come back to the field and All Munkey Business was in perfect striking position. Down the stretch Plutino moved All Munkey Business to the outside and went right by the leader to open up and win by a length and a quarter in 1:55.1. It was the second win of the year for the 5-year old daughter of Dream Vacation – Eagle Lane for the Funky Munky Stable LLC of New York, New York and trainer Jean Drolet. Prairie Big John held tough to finish second, while Stars And Glides (Bruce Clarke) was third.
