Friday night’s Batavia Downs Casino 12-race program featured the $9,000 Filly and Mares Open Pace and the $8,800 Open Handicap Trot.

In the Filly and Mares Open, The Grey Filly took advantage of the scratch of speedy Allamerican Tout and went wire-to-wire to score in 1:57.1, for trainer-driver Ron Bebeck, Jr.

Big City Hanover with Jamie Dunlap tried The Grey Filly first over and wound up second while the pocket-sitter, Jennifers Major and Tom Agosti, took home the show dough.

Sandra Beback owns The Grey Filly, a four-year-old Northern Luck mare. The win vaulted her season’s earnings to more than $45,000.

Fifty Two Fifty notched his third Downs win when he came from off the pace to score in the weekly Open Trot.

Getting away fourth, Fifty Two Finn and regular driver John Cummings, Jr., followed second over cover, tipped three-deep when that cover stalled, and trotted up a storm down the lane to be a going away 3-1/2 length winner, in 1:58.3.

Early leader Hello Carlo with Downs dash leading driver Jack Flanigen held on for second over Speedy Ryan with Ron Abbott.

This was the 43rd career win for Fifty Two Finn, a 10-year-old altered son of Movie Mogul. He’s earned over $426,000 lifetime. Ronald Stebbins is the owner-trainer.
