Roundtown Rocker (Jim Taggart Jr.) charges late to take the Tioga Downs featured harness racing pace ($9,000) on Saturday (May 18).

Meadowbranch Ricky put up all the early fractions (:27.4, :57.0, 1:25.2).

Roundtown Rocker ($14.20), who is trained by Rick Dane for owners Scott Dane and the Rock&Roll Stable, was third after three-quarters. He went flying in the stretch and wore down second place finisher Meadowbranch Ricky to win in a seasonal best time of 1:55.3. Jack Rules (Andy Santeramo) came up late to finish third.

Roundtown Rocker is a 6-year-old gelding by Hard Rock N Roll. It was his second win this season. He now has 33 career victories.

Jim Taggart Jr. had two more wins on the night. His other wins came with Soho Hanover ($9.00) and Six Bax ($6.00).

Live racing returns to Tioga Downs with a 13 race card on Sunday (May 19) starting at 1 p.m.
