Kelly Ford's Something For Doc ($7.60) repelled a stout challenge from even-money favorite All Stienam to capture Sunday (May 8) afternoon's $8,200 top-level harness racing pacing event at Tioga Downs.
 
Justin Huckabone secured the pocket early with the 8-year-old Western Hanover gelding, brushing with a circuit to go to overtake Golden Gun (Tyler Freese) after a :27.2 initial quarter. After rating a :29.2 second split, Something For Doc was forced to accelerate by the favored All Stienam (Jim Marohn, Jr.), who applied stern first-over pressure on the backstretch. Something For Doc would not be worn down, edging away off the far turn and defeating All Stienam by 1-3/4 lengths in 1:53.1. All Golden Gun just stayed on for third from his loose pocket trip.
