Truth And Liberty (Mike Simons) captured the $11,000 harness racing featured Filly & Mare Open Pace at Tioga Downs on Friday (August 23).

Juxta Cowgirl (Aaron Byron) led to the first quarter in :26.4. Truth And Liberty ($4.10) took over as they went by the stands for the first time and led to the half in :55.4. She was the first to the three-quarter pole in 1:24.0. Gigi From Figi (Wally Hennessey) came first over as they went around the final turn.

Truth And Liberty, who is trained by Simons and owned by Fairy Horsemother Stables, shook off Gig From Figi. She then held off the late charge from second place finisher K J's Caroline (Jim Taggart Jr.) to win in 1:52.2. Gigi From Fiji finished third.

Truth And Liberty is a 7-year-old mare by Total Truth. She has won four straight fillies & mares open 1 at Tioga. It was her eighth win this season and her 43rd career victory.

Leading driver Wally Hennessey drove four winners on the night. He combined with trainer Mike Deters for wins with Mach West ($3.30) and Prairie Midnight ($9.40). He teamed up with trainer Jim McDonald for the other two wins. They won with Odds On Cheddar ($14.40), and Tap Tap Tap ($3.30).

Tioga Downs returns to live racing on Saturday (August 24) with a 12 race card starting at 6:15 p.m.
