Gimpanzee won the $59,800 first division of the New York Sire Stakes for three-year-old trotting colts & geldings Friday evening at Tioga Downs as he continues his path to this year’s Hambletonian.

Gimpanzee ($2.10) hit the first quarter in :28.1 for driver Brian Sears while Mr Vicktor (Tyler Buter) followed in the pocket. Gimpanzee hit the half in :56.2 and then cruised to three-quarters in 1:24.3 and then found another gear to win by over four lengths in a lifetime best of 1:52.4. Mr Vicktor had to settle for second money. Livinonthedash finished a distant third.

Gimpanzee is a three-year-old colt by Chapter Seven. He is 3-for-3 this season and is now a perfect 12-for-12 in his career.

Cavill Hanover (Jim Morrill, Jr.) captured the $60,900 second division.

Lucky Weekend (Brian Sears) went to the first quarter first in :28.4. Cavill Hanover ($7.90) took over the lead after they went by the stands for the first time hitting the half in :58.2. He led to three-quarters in 1:26.2.

Cavill Hanover, who is trained by Ake Svanstedt for owners Little E LLC, Wolfgang A Stable Inc and Borje Nasstrom, held off a late charge by second place finisher Lucky Weekend to win in 1:55.2. Quiksilver Bluechip (Wally Hennessey) was third best.

Cavill Hanover is a three-year-old gelding by Muscle Mass. He won for the second time this season. He now owns five career victories.

Tioga Downs returns to live racing on Saturday with a 10 race card starting an hour later than usual at 7:15 p.m.
