Dragin The Wagon (Aaron Byron) goes gate-to-wire to win the Saturday night (June 23) featured pace ($10,000) at Tioga Downs.

Dragin The Wagon ($7.10) charged out of the gate from his outside position and put up all the fractions (:27.3, :571, 1:25.2, 1:55.0). Trained by Jeff Byron for owners Cary, David, and Michael Cantelon, Dragin the Wagon was pressured a little at the top of the stretch by second place finisher Noble Anthony (Atlee Bender), but the gelding found another gear and won easily. SR Radar finished third.

Dragin The Wagon is an 8-year-old gelding by Angus Hall. It was his third win of the season and his 42nd career victory.

Mike Merton won three races on the night. His wins were with Jupiter Johnny ($3.70), Commentary ($7.60), and Odds In Play ($13.20).

Tioga Downs returns to live racing on Sunday (June 24) featuring three divisions of the New York Sire Stakes (NYSS) for 3-year-old trotting fillies. Also Tioga Downs, the Southern Tier Harness Horsemen's Association, and the Harness Horse Breeders' of NYS are joining together once again to host its Annual "Scholarship Race". It will be after race 2. The 15 race card starts at 1:00 p.m.
