Hot List (Jim Marohn Jr.) captured Friday night's $16,000 fillies and mares miracle mile 1-2 handicap at Tioga Downs.
The duo of Marohn – Burke have been on a roll lately at Tioga Downs, and they continued their success on Friday night as Marohn put Hot List on the lead from post four after an opening quarter of :26.3. From there Hot List controlled the half mile mark in :55.1 as Aaron Byron and Little Santamonica unleashed a wicked first over move down the backside and stuck a nose in front as the field reached three quarters in 1:23. Around the final turn, Hot List fought back and repelled the tough challenge from Little Santamonica to go on and win by a length in 1:51.4.
Ron Burke trains the 5-year old daughter of McArdle-Only Gossip for the ownership group of Burke Racing, Di Scala Jr., and Massari of Pennsylvania and New York.
Fiesta Camcun (Corey Braden) used a pocket trip to secure second, while Little Santamonica (Aaron Byron) hung on for third to round out the 4-5-6 trifecta good for $54.50.
Jimmy Marohn Jr. and Corey Braden each posted driving triples on the night's ten race card.
