Prairie Fortune took the $12,000 Open Trot at Tioga Downs on Saturday, June 2.

Dragin The Wagon shot to the early lead, hitting the first quarter in :27.2. Muscles Jared took over and controlled the tempo through a :56.2 half and three-quarters in 1:24.3.

Golden Son then battled Prairie Fortune all the way down stretch. Neither horse wanted to give an inch but Prairie Fortune used one last lunge to win in 1:54.1. Golden Son had to settle for second. Dragin The Wagon took third.

Prairie Fortune is a six-year-old gelding by Arapa Victory. He is owned by Laurie Poulin and trainer Mike Deters. It was win number six for the season and career victory number 43. Driven by Jim Meittinis, he paid $6.20 to win.

Live racing returns on Sunday, June 3 with a 14-race card featuring three divisions of the New York Sire Stakes for sophomore filly pacers. The 2017 Two-Year-Old Filly Pacer of the Year, Youaremycandygirl, looks to rebound after finishing sixth in her first start of the year last Sunday. Post time is 1:00 p.m.
