Roundtown Rocker (Wally Hennessey) wins the $9,000 featured harness racing trot at Tioga Downs on Saturday (August 24).

BJ Loarado (Mike Merton) took the lead just before hitting the first quarter in :27.0. He continued to lead hitting the half in :56.1. Jack Rules (Andy Santeramo) started to put on the pressure as BJ Lorado hit three-quarters in 1:24.4. The two trotters went around the last turn shoulder to shoulder.

Roundtown Rocker ($6.70), who is trained by Rick Dane for owners Rock&Roll Stable and Scott Dane, was locked in the box as they turned for home. He would squeeze through an opening on the inside and holdoff a late charge by second place finisher Meadowbranch Ricky (Mike Simons) to win in a seasonal best 1:54.4. Jack Rules held on for third.

Roundtown Rocker is a 6-year-old gelding by Hard Rock N Roll. It was his fourth win in 2019. He now owns 35 career victories.

Wally Hennessey added three more wins on the night. His other wins came with P L McCracken ($5.20), No Reason At All ($13.00), and Blueberry Heaven ($10.40). Mike Simons and Andy Santeramo each drove two winners on the night. SImons finished first with Cayenne Victory ($3.80), and Eldorado Of Gold S ($15.60). Andy Santeramo got his victories with You Said It ($3.10), and Uncle Hanover ($5.50).

Tioga Downs returns to live racing with an 11 race card featuring Reynold Memorial races for freshmen trotters and pacers starting at 1 p.m.
