Nichols, NY --- Tioga Downs played host to eight Tompkins-Geers Stakes for freshman pacers and trotters of both sexes on Friday (Aug. 10).

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

Zero Tolerance is a filly by Heston Blue Chip-Feelinglikeastar. Her win was just one-fifth off the track record for freshman pacing fillies set last year by Youaremycandygirl in 1:52. She is now three-for-four in her career.
