Ubetterthink Think, driven by Jason Bartlett, captured the $30,000 open pace for fillies and mares at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs Wednesday night.
Leaving from post position four in the nine-horse field of gals, Bartlett sat fourth for the first half of the mile as Larry Stalbaum and Quicksilvercandy A took the field to the opening stanza in :26.4 and half in :55.
Ubetterthink Think stopped the timer in 1:52.4 as a 9-1 shot and proved to be the spoiler for the Pick 7 wager with the jackpot now standing at $87,004.16 going into the Friday night card at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. The six of seven consolation tickets paid $1,937.80 for a $2 bet.
This was the 12th win in 35 starts for the 5-year-old Bettor’s Delight mare trained by Mark Ford.
Twin Oaks Tess (Tom Jackson) finished second in the race with third-place going to Esmeralda Semalu (Joe Pavia Jr.). (Pocono)
