Rita J and Ron Pierce posted the fastest mile Sunday afternoon for 3-year-old filly pacers and lowered the track record for that class with a mile timed in 1:53.2 in New York Fair Stakes action at Tioga Downs.

The 3-year-old daughter of Bettor’s Delight is owned by Kenneth Jacobs of Baldwinsville, New York and is trained by Linda Toscano.

Ecstatic went postward in her first race back since taking on the top older trotting mares in the $250,000 Breeders Crown two weeks ago. David Miller sent the 5-year-old daughter of Self Possessed right to the front and never looked back en route to a 2 1/2-length victory in 1:56.4.

Cannae Cindy and Jeff Gregory posted an impressive victory leaving from post position nine for trainer Ed Lohmeyer. The 3-year old daughter of Bettor’s Delight was hung to the quarter pole in :28.1 but was never affected, posting a final quarter timed in :28.2 to win by three-quarters of a length in 1:54.3.

Tioga Downs will resume live racing from Nichols, New York on Monday, August 14, with a post time of 6:50 p.m. (Tioga release)
