Two divisions of the 3-year old pacing fillies and one division for 3-year old pacing colts have drawn out to take center stage at Tioga Downs on Sunday, May 16th with a post time of 1:30 pm.
Pennsylvania Sire Stakes Champion, Dancinwiththestarz leads the first field of six pacing fillies in her second start of her sophomore campaign. Her first start came last week in a division of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes at The Meadows with Brian Sears shipping in to do the driving for trainer John Stark Jr. The 3-year old daughter of Four Starzzzz Shark-So Western cut the mile en route to a 1:53 victory for the Springtime Racing Stable of Johnstown, NY and Shannon Brott of Gloversville, NY. Trainer John Stark Jr. has called on the driving skills of Jim Morrill Jr. on Sunday afternoon at Tioga Downs.

Feeling You leads the second John Simpson Memorial division from post position one for trainer George Berkner. The 3-year old daughter of Cambest-Ripreza Hanover recently won the Wilkes Barre Late Closing Final at Pocono Downs in a lifetime best equaling 1:51.2. Jim Morrill Jr. has done the driving for the past three starts for owner-breeder Alan Kirschenbaum of Burbank, California, and has been listed once again on Sunday afternoon.
In the lone $42,227 division for 3-year old pacing colts, Mark Ford sends in a pair of pacers in Eagle Jolt and Park Lane Midnight. Eagle Jolt looks to lead a field of eight as in eight starts in 2010 he has posted three wins, three seconds, and a third for earnings of more than $27,000. Three starts back in late April Eagle Jolt finished second to Berry’s Creek Champion, Rock N Roll Heaven in a 3-year old open at The Meadowlands timed in 1:51.1.
