Ronnie Wrenn Jr., continued his winning ways on Saturday winning eight times on the 16-race program at Northfield Park.
Wrenn’s triumphs were with World Of Gaming ($3.00) in race two, Lady Gallipolis ($5.20) in race three, Blues Queen ($2.60) in race four, Southwind Lea ($3.80) in race six, Stirling Euphoria ($4.20) in race 10, Feelin Red Hot ($7.60) in race 11, Stucklikeglue ($2.20) in race 12 and Derek Delight ($3.00) in race 14.
Wrenn won his first race in 2008, a $2,800 Billings event at the Hillsdale Fair in Michigan aboard Artful Power.
Since breaking his maiden, Wrenn has scored over 4,500 more times with purse earnings approaching $27 million.
The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono’s leading driver, George Napolitano Jr., was honored in the winner's circle early in the evening on Saturday for earning career driving victory 9,000 on Monday night, making him only the 21st North American member of that exclusive club. Then Napolitano went out and showed he was in a hurry to get to 10,000 on Saturday scoring eight times on the card.
His victories included the $18,000 claiming handicap pacing feature with the red-hot Major Trick, a gelded son of Art Major who made two speed moves in searing early fractions of :26.2 and :53.4, opened a big lead to the 1:21.4 to the three-quarter pole, then stayed clear by 1 3/4 lengths to the wire in 1:50.1.
The winner of $339,088, a five-time winner in his last six starts, is trained by Hunter Oakes for owner Omar Beiler. Napolitano also won the fastest mile of the night, which was a 1:48.4 triumph with the world champion Scott Rocks. (Northfield/Pocono/PHHA)
