Myluvmylife and Uncle Peter scored the fastest miles in their respective classes of the W.N. Reynolds Memorial Stakes on Tuesday night at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. The Reynolds races are the highlight of Grand Circuit Week, which began at Pocono on Tuesday.

There were five “Judge Moore” Reynolds divisions held for 2-year-old colts and geldings on the trot, which held purses ranging from $19,891 to $20,291. In addition, there were three more “Leda Long” divisions held for 3-year-old fillies on the pace, each with a purse of $21,967.

Myluvmylife, driven by Tim Tetrick for trainer Joseph King, made her first victory of 2011 a memorable one, as she burned her way to a Leda Long win in a career-best 1:51. Other winners in the 3-year-old pacing filly class were Mikayla Rose (Tetrick, Justin Lebo) in 1:51:3; and In Deep Thought (Dave Palone, Robert Reeser) in 1:52.

Uncle Peter put on a stellar performance in his debut race, as trainer/driver Jimmy Takter guided him to a Judge Moore win by 14 lengths in a sizzling 1:55:1. Other two-year-old trotting colts and geldings winners were Astarsborn Hanover (Ray Schnittker driver and trainer) in 1:57:2; Lad Pine (David Miller, Joe Holloway) in 1:57:2; Possess The Will (Tetrick, Jim Campbell) in 1:57:3; and Weingartner (Takter driver and trainer) in 1:55:1.

Reynolds action continues at Pocono on Wednesday night with eight divisions of the “Meda” for two-year-old trotting fillies. (Pocono Downs)
