BATAVIA, N.Y. --- Puff Mommy continued her winning ways on Wednesday night as she rallied once again to win the $7,400 Open I-II pace for fillies and mares at Batavia Downs. It was the second straight victory for the razor-sharp Puff Mommy and third in her last four appearances.

It was another big backside move once again that sent Puff Mommy ($7.30) to the victory. She went three-wide down the backstretch for Batavia Downs' leading driver Shawn McDonough and collared the pace-setting You're Too Funny at the top of the lane, easily pacing away to the 2-3/4 length win in 1:55.3 over the fast track. You're Too Funny (Kevin Cummings) held on for second while Real Joy (Ron Beback Jr.) took the show spot.

It was the ninth win of the season for Puff Mommy (Cambest-Ten Pound Puff) who is owned by Empowered Racing and trained by Carl Smith. It moved the 6-year-old mare's seasonal earnings to $51,808 and career total to $235,860. It was also her 30th career victory.

The racing continues on Friday night at Batavia Downs with a 12-race program slated for 6:30 p.m. The feature will the $8,500 Open Trot where BZ Glide is the 5-2 favorite despite being assigned the eight post. Mike Caprio in the sulky.
