WILKES-BARRE, PA - The Somebeachsomewhere gelding Dreams Beachboy made it two straight over The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono's oval, and four wins while not missing the board in his last eight starts, with a 1:51.2 victory in the $21,500 pacing feature on Saturday night.

The track's leading driver, George Napolitano Jr., worked out a pocket trip behind the pacesetting Sprinter N, while the latter, after getting to the quarter in 26.4, belied his name by resting to the half in 56.2.

Down the backstretch first-over Music Is Art made life tougher on the leader, necessitating a 1:23.3 breaking of the beam at the ¾ pole, and the extra expenditure of energy helped set up the late rally of Dreams Beachboy, who won by a half-length over the tough Music Is Art, with Sprinter N another neck back in third.

Trainer Deborah Burnet is 2-for-2 at Pocono this year, both with the victorious winner of $242,784, for Crawford Farms Racing.

George Napolitano Jr.'s brother Anthony won the co-featured $16,000 claiming handicap pace, the night's opener, with the Bettor's Delight gelding The Onlyest One in 1:52.4. The winner visited Victory Lane for the twelfth time this season, backing out to follow cover from his third-in position, then catching pacesetting That Man Of Mine and pocketsitting Wick N by a neck, with the last two-named deadheating for the deuce. Laurie Patistas owns and trains The Onlyest One.

There are only six more cards left in the 2018 Pocono Downs season: the following Sundays, Tuesdays, and Saturdays, as Mondays will go dark for the remaining seasonal action, which concludes November 17.
