My True Delight and Phil Fluet equaled the track mark of 1:52.1 for older pacing mares on Saturday night at Tioga Downs in the $14,000 Fillies and Mares Open Handicap Pace.

The duo found a spot in the middle of the pack as Nip N Attack and Howard Parker cut through fractions of :27.3, :55.1, and 1:23. Corey Braden edged out of the pocket with Golden Falcon N to challenge around the last turn, but My True Delight was too strong as she went three wide through the lane and captured her second victory of the year.

Judy Lanpher owns and trains the 6-year-old daughter of Bettor\'s Delight-My True Art. The victory lowered her lifetime mark by a full second, and with the winner’s share of $7,000, increased her lifetime earnings to more than $192,000.

In the first leg of the M&J Oil and Lube Pace, Touch And Go and Parker pulled to the front past the three-eighths pole and never relinquished the lead. The duo paced through fractions of :28, :56.2, and 1:23.3 before sprinting away from the field in :28.3 to stop the teletimer in 1:52.1. It was the third win in nine starts for the 4-year-old son of Life Sign-Go Lightly. Nick Giberson trains Touch And Go for Suttons Bay Racing and the mile of 1:52.1 established a new lifetime mark.

In the second division of the pacing series, the betting favorite Cheyenne Knight did not disappoint his backers. Trainer-driver Bruce Clarke sent the 4-year-old Dragon Again-Cheyenne Sabrina gelding three wide down the backstretch to open up on the field. It was the fifth win in eight starts for Cheyenne Knight, who captured the first leg in 1:52.3. (Tioga Downs)
