WILKES-BARRE PA – Upsets were the rule (until the last few races) during a Sunday twilight card at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, with the trend featuring in two $35,000 divisions of a Pennsylvania All-Stars contest for three-year-old pacing colts, taken by Enough Sun ($29.00) and Tell Them Lou ($45.20).
Both winners found success in sitting third-inside for most of the mile. The Somebeachsomewhere colt Enough Sun was content to stay behind favored Manticore and Tru Lou most of the way, then backed out late turn to swing wide and passed four horses in the lane to be along by a half length over Manticore in a lifetime best 1:50. David Miller drove the winner, unraced at two and now winner of half his eight starts, for trainer Brian Brown and owner Alan Keith.
In the $14,000 conditioned distaff pacing feature, the veteran Lispatty sat behind favored Alexa’s Power most of the mile, then overpowered the pacesetter by three-quarters of a length in 1:51.2. Marcus Miller drove the McArdle mare, who has now won $959,799 and 37 races, for trainer Gilbert Garcia-Herrera and owner/son Gilbert Garcia-Owen.
