WILKES-BARRE PA – The My MVP mare Thisisshe continued her domination of the top claiming trotters at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono on Tuesday, taking a new mark of 1:53.4 in the $12,800 handicap feature.
Thisisshe has frequently raced on or near the lead, but with Just Maybe The One blasting away and Clarion Hall protecting the pocket, driver George Napolitano Jr. settled the favorite in third, and the pair may have given her backers a bit of anxiety as she gapped at points as Just Maybe The One blasted fractions of :26.3, :55.1, and 1:23.4.
“George Nap“ won four races on the Monday card to lead the driving colony on the day.
Pocono will for the second straight Tuesday be using only the “nw2 races,” “nw 4 races,” and “nw 8 races” conditions – and as can be expected, there is one more “nw 4” races (five) and one fewer “nw 2” races (seven) than last week, as several of the last week’s winners are stepping up. The two “nw8 races” events, for $15,300, are the card’s features, with pacers in race ten and trotters in race twelve. Program pages are available at https://www.phha.org/downsmsppps.html.
