For the second time in the past four open handicap trot races at Pocono Downs, it was Nicoles Promise beating the boys in the $28,750 open handicap trot Tuesday, September 1 night.

Nicoles Promise, a six-year-old trotting mare trained by John Marshall, just nipped Grain Of Truth (driven by Ray Schnittker) at the wire. Time of the mile was 1:55.2.

Schnittker left quickly from the Post 6 and stayed on top the entire race before finishing second. Summertime Yankee (Andrew McCarthy) finished third.

Nicoles Promise also won from the five hole in open-handicap-trot company on August 4.

Gift Kronos, the eight horse in the field and the race favourite with Daniel Dube in the bike, went on an early break after leaving the gate, leaving Ray Schnittker and Grain Of Truth to take the lead in the race.

Explosive Matter, the 8-5 morning line favourite and assigned the nine hole, was scratched 'sick' from the race.

The win with Nicoles Promise was Jackson’s third of the evening. George Napolitano, Jr., who collected five wins this past Saturday afternoon at Pocono, also had three wins through the first 10 races of the 16-race card Tuesday evening.
