Truth And Liberty and trainer/driver Mike Simons were victorious again the $11,000 featured Fillies & Mares Open Pace at Tioga Downs on Friday (August 16).

Juxta Cowgirl (Aaron Byron) went to the front and controlled the pace, hitting the first quarter in :27.1. Truth And Liberty ($3.90) watched from second as Juxta Cowgirl hit the half in :55.3 and three-quarters in 1:23.2.

Truth And Liberty, who is owned by Fairy Horsemother Stables, came out of the pocket in the stretch. She took a short lead and Juxta Cowgirl fought back. But in the end, Truth And Liberty was too strong and won in a seasonal-best 1:51. Juxta Cowgirl had to settle for second and KJs Caroline (Jim Taggart Jr.) finished third.

Truth And Liberty is a seven-year-old mare by Total Truth. The win was her third straight and seventh victory this season. She now has 42 career victories.

Leading driver Wally Hennessey had four winners on the card courtesy of Check Mach ($3.90), Glamorgal ($5.20), Persistent Bettor ($4.90) and Odds On Cheddar ($3.20). Simons drove three winners on the night. His other wins came with Cayenne Victory ($2.50) and Lime Twist ($10.80).

Live racing at Tioga Downs returns on Saturday with a 12-race card starting at 6:15 p.m.
