WILKES-BARRE PA - Limelight Beach, the 2014 Little Brown Jug winner, held off a determined railshooting Katies Rocker to take the $20,000 featured harness racing conditioned pace Saturday night at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono in 1:51.1.

Matt Kakaley left strongly with the gelded son of Somebeachsomewhere but still had to race two-wide to get around Dreams Beachboy at the 26.2 quarter. Limelight Beach posted middle fractions of 55 and 1:22.4, had put away a strong first-over bid by Major Uptrend, and was able to get some separation from Dreams Beachboy, but in midstretch Katies Rocker, who had raced third-inside, shot to the deep Pocono Pike and gained rapidly, with Kakaley urging his charge on and withstanding that one by a half-length, with Theartofconfusion A coming from far back to edge Dreams Beachboy for third.

The victory was the third in the last four starts for the lifetime winner of $1,175,699 - he had taken his previous start at Batavia on the Kane Pace undercard, with the feature taken by his Ron Burke stablemate Foiled Again. Burke Racing Stable LLC, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, M1 Stable LLC, and the Wingfield Brothers LLC are the "Superfecta LLC" owners.

Rockin Rambaran won his fourth straight race when he took the $18,000 high-end claiming pace by two lengths in 1:51.1 for driver George Napolitano Jr., trainer Richard Banca, and the P T Stable. But "P T," who had claimed the pacer for $25,000 out of his last start, will (at least for now) have to settle for a "$9000 minus a week's training fees" profit from the horse, as he was taken Saturday right back by the Chris Oakes stable.
