Trainer Tye Loy shipped into Tioga Downs with newcomer Sand Windsor on Friday night, and took home the featured $16,500 fillies and mares Open Handicap Pace.
Leaving from the rail Sand Windsor worked out a perfect second-over cover trip and tipped three-wide as the field passed three-quarters in 1:24.4. Down the stretch driver Greg Grismore asked for more from Sand Windsor, and she responded, opening up on the field to score in 1:53.4 for her second win of the season. Lickcreek Jazzy (Ed Hensley) finished second, while Leanback Coco (Phil Fluet) closed late for third.
The 4-year old daughter of Real Desire–Time N Again is owned by Bill Sanders of McDonald, Tennessee, and with the win, she increased her seasonal earnings to more than $293,000.
Corey Braden and Ed Hensley each posted driving triples on the night’s 12-race card, while Greg Merton chalked up two wins. (Tioga)
