Maxdaddy Blue Chip was a 1:49.3 upset winner in the Sunday (May 14) Tioga Downs feature, the $12,000 Open Pace.
Driven by Mickey McNichol, the 5-year-old Sportswriter gelding would sit back in fourth for most of the race, watching as the two favorites, Clear Vision (Larry Staulbaum) and Pretty Boy Hill (Jason Bartlett), battled all the way to the backstretch.

After Pretty Boy tired before the paddock turn, Clear Vision would be left alone on the lead as they turned for home. Andreios Kardia (Aaron Byron) looked poised to take over after leaving the pocket in the stretch. McNichol would then guide Maxdaddy Blue Chip, who is owned by Fred Monteleone, three wide down the stretch to get the victory.
Maxdaddy Blue Chip, who is trained by McNichol, paid $27 to win. Clear Vision would hang on for second with Andreios Kardia third.
Tioga Downs returns to action on Friday (May 19) at 6:50 p.m.. (Tioga)
