Classicality wins from outside post at Pocono
« Return to News
Classicality was able to handle the outermost post in the tenth race $20,000 featured handicap trot Sunday evening at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, tallying in 1:54.2 for his fourth straight victory.
Driver Marcus Miller dexterously worked out a second-over trip for the Classic Photo despite startring behind the eight ball, followed the cover of race favorite and 2014 Peter Haughton winner Centurion ATM as that one worked to the lead headstretch, then tipped wider and stayed strong to take the decision by a neck. Lisa Dunn is the owner and trainer of the versatile trotter, who now has a lifetime bankroll of $494,142.
In the previous race – good golly Miss Molly, that was Penniman who overcame early interference and went right to the lead, then held off a foe to either side late to light up the tote board with a $90.60 victory. (You know that rock'n'roll Hall of Famer Little Richard's last name is Penniman, right?) Aaron Johnston trains and drove the victorious sophomore altered son of Yankee Glide, who broke his maiden in 1:57.4 for owner Richard Hess. (Pocono/PHHA)
