Sun Stakes elims in new Weekend Preview
« Return to News
Stakes action returns stateside this weekend with The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono hosting eliminations for a quartet of major events. Trainer Jimmy Takter explained to Gordon Waterstone his reasoning behind entering Manchego in the Earl Beal Jr. Memorial Trot against the boys. This is the second year in a row he's taken that route, with Ariana G winning her elim in 2017 and then finishing third in the final.
The Ohio-based Mission Accepted drew into another Beal elim and trainer Jeff Conger spoke to Kathy Parker about bringing the Buckeye colt to Pocono. We also have the thoughts from the connections of North America Cup champ Lather Up, who is right back in action in the Max Hempt elims.
There have been plenty of fast 2 year olds this year and we have the updated stats. We also have a late-breaking story regarding a 2016 Class 1 positive in a Pennsylvania Sires Stakes championship that never saw any action taken.
