Tioga Downs played host to four Geers Stakes races and four Arthur Tompkins Memorial races for freshman pacers and trotters of both sexes on Friday (August 10).

In the second $30,000 division of the Geers Stakes for freshman pacing fillies, Zero Tolerance (David Miller) took over after Tyler Buter took Money Shot Hanover (racing for purse only) to a first quarter in :27.4. Zero Tolerance ($2.80) put up the rest of the fractions (:56.3, 1:24.2, 1:52.1). Money Shot Hanover held for second and JK American Beauty was third.

Zero Tolerance is a two-year-old filly by Heston Blue Chip out of Feelinglikeastar. Her winning time was just one-fifth of a second off the track record for freshman pacing fillies set last year by Youaremycandygirl. She is now three-for-four in her career.

In the $29,500 first division of the Geers Stakes for freshman pacing fillies, Surreality (So Surreal-Beat That) came up late to win in 1:54.3. Driven by Corey Callahan, she paid $22.20 for the win.

Cub Fan (So Surreal-Pardon) won the $25,200 first division of the Geers Stakes for freshman pacing colts and geldings. Marcus Miller drove him to victory in 1:54.3. He paid $40.80 for the win.

The $25,200 second division went to Flameproof Hanover (Captaintreacherous-Fashion Ecstasy). Driven by Tim Tetrick, he covered the mile in 1:54.2 and returned $5.30 to win.

In the $28,750 first division of the Arthur Tompkins Memorial for two-year-old trotting fillies, Evident Beauty (Trixton-Stuck By Lindy) shocked the field, flying in the stretch to get the win in 1:58. Driven by David Miller, she won her first lifetime start and paid $23.60.

In the second division, it was Big Weezy (Trixton-Keepsake Hanover) reaching the winner's circle with David Miller in command. She scored the mile in 1:59.2 and paid $5 to win.

In the $28,650 first division of the Arthur Tompkins Memorial for freshman colts and geldings, Tim Tetrick guided Chapter Fashion (Chapter Seven-New Hampshire Girl) to a victory in 1:56.1. He paid $2.80 for the win.

In the $29,150 second division, Ray Schnittker drove Alternative Fact (Trixton-Myth) to a gate-to-wire victory in 1:55.3. He paid $31.60 for the win.

Marcus Miller added three more wins to go with his victory aboard Cub Fan. He also drove Friday night winners Lo Hold A Moonbean ($3.20), Mandolin Hanover ($51.50) and Mean Leen ($6.70).

Live racing returns on Saturday (August 11) with 13 races on hand. The first annual wiener dog races will also take place. Thirty dachshunds will vie for a first-place prize of a $500 wagering voucher for their owner. The wiener races will be held in between the live horse races. Post time is 6:15 p.m.
