Benefiting from a pocket trip, the Wiz Kids Stable LLC's Golden Gun took his second consecutive win in Monday evening's $15,000 Open Pace at Tioga Downs.

The four-year-old Headmaster gelding tracked odds-on favourite Bet On The Law (Joe Pavia, Jr.) through strong - yet controlled - fractions of :27.1, :55.3 and 1:22.4 before edging off the pegs midway through the far turn. At the top of the stretch, Bet On The Law was fully extended, and would be collared by Golden Gun in the final 70 yards of a 1:51 mile. Golden Gun won by just shy of a length over Bet On the Law, while JK Panache (John MacDonald) just missed second off a stand-side charge.

John Cummings, Jr. drove Golden Gun for trainer Jeff Sorenson. The pacer paid $27.80

Racing resumes at Tioga Downs on Friday evening, with first post at 6:15 p.m.
