Future Character (Rick Dane Jr.) parlayed a first over grind into an Open pace victory on Sunday night (May 27) at Tioga Downs. Leaving from post position number four in a harness racing field of six, Future Character got away fifth and began the first over journey as the field reached the half mile in 55.3.

Last week's Open winner, Vlos (Fern Paquet Jr.) were on the front, but offered little resistance to the first over threat as the field reached three quarters in 1:23. Around the final turn Future Character and Dane cleared to the lead and opened up on the field to score in a seasonal best of 1:52.

It was the second win of the season for the 8-year old son of Shady Character - Red Seafor the Rock & Roll Stable of Chicago, IL. Hay Goodlooking (Rick Plano) found room late to get up for second, while Sheer Brilliance (Jim Taggart Jr.) was third.

Dan Noble posted a driving grand slam on the night's 12 strong race card, while Corey Braden enjoyed a double.

Tioga Downs continues with live racing on Monday, May 28 (Memorial Day) with a post time of 1:30 pm featuring 13 divisions of the New York State Fair Stakes for 3-year old pacers.
