John Campbell left his imprint on Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs on Tuesday afternoon, picking up three wins to highlight W.N. Reynolds Stakes action.

The Reynolds races are the feature of Grand Circuit Week at Pocono. On Tuesday, there were six divisions held for 2-year-old fillies on the trot and two more held for 3-year-old colts and geldings on the pace.

Campbell piloted a pair of fillies to their second consecutive stakes victories. Bether Always, from the barn of Charles Sylvester, followed up a win in the Acorn at he Meadowlands by winning a Reynolds division in 1:59.3. Campbell then guided Athena Hanover, from the barn of his brother Jim, to a victory in her split in 1:59.1, the fastest time posted in the six trotting divisions.

Campbell added a Reynolds win aboard 3-year-old pacing colt Ruff Me Up, who comes from the barn of Steve Elliott. They followed cover on the backstretch before rallying in the stretch for the win in 1:52.

Driver Tim Tetrick also chalked up a pair of Reynolds wins. Tetrick captured the other division for 3-year-old colt pacers aboard Double Your Moves, who fired from behind in the stretch to win in 1:51.4 for the Jerry Evilsizor barn. Tetrick, the nation’s leading driver in \'07, also pulled off the day’s biggest upset by leading the trotting filly Saorse, at 27-1, to a win in 2:01.

The remaining trotting divisions were captured by Kadealia, a winner on the engine in 2:02.1 for trainer/driver George Dennis; Three Palms, who led all the way to prevail in 1:59.4 with Daniel Dube doing the driving for trainer Larry Remmen; and Flower Lane, who stayed unbeaten after two lifetime stakes starts for trainer Ray Schnittker with a win in 2:00.3. Dave Palone did the driving for Flower Lane, picking up his sixth Reynolds win of the week. (Mohegan Sun press release)
