Tioga Downs hosted three $37,966 divisions of the New York Sire Stakes (NYSS) for two-year-old trotting colts and geldings on Friday, July 20.

Cavill Hanover ($8.20) captured the first division of the night for back-to-back wins in the New York Sire Stakes program to start his career.

JNR Express (Jim Marohn Jr.) established the early lead, hitting the first quarter in :28 and the half in :59.3, before Cavill Hanover took control on the backstretch. Trained and driven by Ake Svanstedt, Cavill Hanover led the way to three-quarters in 1:27.3 and won going away in a lifetime-best 1:56.4. JNR Express held for second and Kredit Karma (Brian Sears) finished third.

Cavill Hanover is a two-year-old colt by Muscle Mass out of Cr Calendar Girl, owned by Little E LLC, Vanersol Inc., and Wolfgang A Stable Inc.

Gimpanzee ($3.40) was also a repeat winner in NYSS action with Brian Sears aboard.

Brady Bunch (Andy Miller) controlled all the early fractions (:29, :59, 1:27.3) while Gimpanzee went first-over from third before the third quarter mark. Trained by Marcus Melander for owners Courant Inc. and SRF Stable, he wore down second-place finisher Brady Bunch to win easily in a career-best 1:56.1. Chapter Fashion (Mike Simons) was third-best.

Gimpanzee is a two-year-old colt by Chapter Seven out of Steamy Windows.

After making miscues in his first two NYSS outings, Chip Chip Conway ($22.40) was an upset winner on Friday night for driver Jim Taggert Jr.

Leap Year Lucky (Dan Daley) led the trotters through a first quarter of :28.4 and half in :59.4. Winning Habit (Andy Miller) took the lead just before hitting three-quarters in 1:28.2. Meanwhile, Chip Chip Conway was third heading to three-quarters. Owned by Ken Weckstein and trainer Gary Messenger, he charged late down the stretch to win in a lifetime-best 1:58. Our White Night (Jim Morrill Jr.) came flying late to finish second. Winning Habit settled for third.
