Corey Braden and Phil Fluet had themselves good nights on Saturday, May 8 at Tioga Downs; three winners for Braden on the night including the co-featured $14,000 Class A Handicap Trot with Jon Win and a division of the $7,500 Kenneth J Pacing Series with Upto, and five driving victories for Fluet.

Braden sent Jon Win to the front for trainer Jeff Long and stung last week’s winner Yankee Nola (Jim Marohn Jr.) to the quarter in :28.4. Braden then used Marohn to draft through the brisk head winds throughout the mile before pulling the pocket down the lane to win by more than a length in 1:56.4. The mile was a new lifetime mark for the five-year-old son of Chip Chip Hooray-Melinda Hall.

In the third and final division of the Kenneth J pacing series, Braden sat off of cover throughout the mile and paced home in the stretch with Upto. Braden co-owns the three-year-old son of Three Olives-Happi Macki with William Carter and Nancy Carter of Delaware. Colby Hubble trains Upto, who posted his first victory of 2010 in 1:55.1, which was the fastest race of the night, and also a new lifetime mark.

Phil Fluet also had a huge night with five driving victories, including three of which he also trains (Major Work Of Art, Armbro Claret and Talkaboutjoy).
