« Return to News
Trotter Beatgoeson Hanover and pacer Here We Go Again won their respective Preferred races on Saturday night at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. Each of the featured races carried a purse of $25,000.
Beatgoeson Hanover (Andover Hall-Beat The Wheel), a 5-year-old mare from the Nifty Norman barn, was making her first start since finishing 5th a week ago in the Breeders Crown final for aged trotting mares. Leaving from post position #3 in a field of six as the 1-2 favorite, she built a huge lead with Tyler Buter in the bike after taking the lead before the half-mile marker and coasted to the victory by 1 ¾ lengths in 1:54. Shesgotlegs rallied for 2nd while Definitely Mamie finished 3rd.
On the pacing side, Here We Go Again (Dragon Again-Odds On Jenna), a 6-year-old gelding from the PJ Fraley barn, left from post position #3 in a field of nine as the 3-1 second choice and made the lead for driver Eric Ledford in the front stretch. The gelding set nasty fractions from that point and faced a stiff challenge from Townslight Hanover in the stretch, holding on to win a photo finish by a nose in 1:50, his third straight win at Pocono. 9-5 favorite Uncle Goodfellow finished 3rd.
