Slip The Hundy N teamed up with driver Mike Merton to take the $12,000 featured Winners Over Pace in 1:51.4 at Tioga Downs on Sunday, July 7.

Leaving from post four in the scratched down field of five, Slip The Hundy N went to the front and led to the quarter in :27.2. Slip the Hundy N remained unchallenged on the lead to the half in :56.3 before Ever Hoping A (Ron Cushing) came first-up and challenged for the lead down the backstretch. Despite the pressure to his outside, Slip The Hundy N was first to three-quarters in 1:23.3.

Slip The Hundy N shook off Ever Hoping A as they reached the stretch. Stewardoftheland (Jim Taggert Jr.) popped the pocket to take his shot at the leader, but Slip The Hundy N found another gear and breezed to an easy win in 1:51.4.  Mach Le More A (John MacDonald) fired late and finished second while Stewardoftheland had to settle for third.

Slip The Hundy N is a seven-year-old gelding by Lincoln Royal.  He is owned by Michael Cassalino and trained by Rob Harmon.  The win was his sixth of the season from 17 starts and 21st for his career. Slip The Hundy N paid $10.80 to win.

Mike Merton drove three winners on the card while Braxten Boyd and Jim Pantaleano had driving doubles.  Rob Harmon had a training double.
