Favorites upended late in Pocono features

The second choice caught the pacesetting favorite in the shadow of the wire in both $16,000 distaff pacing features on Tuesday night at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.
Jenny's Terror hadn't earned a dime in her last five starts, but the subpar results were more a result of bad racing luck, and the daughter of Western Terror had plenty of backers as she rallied from second-over to overtake the front-stepping Rockette in 1:54 while taking the first cut of the feature. Andrew McCarthy guided the sophomore daughter of Western Terror for trainer Steve Elliott and The OK Corral.

The temperature was a "balmy" 54 degrees for the race won by Jenny's Terror, but the mercury had plunged to 42 by the time the second division went to the gate. Such cool conditions could be thought harmful for a filly named Gigi From Fiji, but in fact the Ponder sophomore took a new mark of 1:53 in just edging Sapphire Breeze by the smallest possible margin. Mike Simons had the catch-drive behind the new member of the $100,000 club for trainer Mike Deters, who also co-owns with Lawrence Barnett, Joel Warner, and John Spindler. (Pocono/PHHA)
