Wally Hennessey just keeps on trucking as he had another big night on Friday (Sept. 17), driving seven winners on the 10-race card at Tioga Downs.

Hennessey's victories included the featured $9,000 Fillies & Mares Open II Pace with Vicious Circle ($2.10).

No Where To Hide (Mike Simons) grabbed the early lead on the way to the first quarter in :26.4, but Vicious Circle took command as they headed to the stands for the first time. She reached the half in :56.3 and glided to three-quarters in 1:24.4.

As the field made the turn for home, Vicious Circle made it a battle for second as she cruised to an easy win in 1:53 flat. Shecouldbegood N (Mike Merton) won the race for place and No Where To Hide took third money.

Vicious Circle is a four-year-old mare by Manhardt. She is trained by John Hallett for owners Rick Howles, Geoffrey Howles and Souren Hovesplan. The win was her seventh of the season from 22 starts and she now owns 23 career victories.

Hennessey earned his other wins with Baby Got Back ($3.60), Machet Time ($4.20), Some Deal Hanover ($4.30), Chocolate Matters ($2.60), PL Munson ($2.10) and Faithful Desire ($5.80). Hallett had a training double on the night as he got his other win with Some Deal Hanover.
