A Stitch In Time, unbothered by an outside post, put together a dominant performance to win the $30,000 final of the Bobby Weiss harness racing series for three and four-year-old pacers Saturday night at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs.

Despite drawing the outside post in a field of nine, A Stitch In Time (Kent's On Nuke-Sheza Gimmie Girl), a four-year-old gelding trained by Lou Pena, was made the 6-5 favorite based on a 1:49:3 win in the final preliminary leg. Driver George Napolitano Jr. maneuvered him into fourth around the first turn while Getitoffyourchest set the early pace. A Stitch In Time quickly brushed to the lead on the front stretch, set a big lead with imposing fractions, and came home comfortably in front of Trys Little Prince by 1 ¾ lengths in a career-best 1:48:3. Getitoffyourchest finished third.

Owned by A Piece Of The Action LLC of Culver City, CA, A Stitch In Time won for the seventh time in eleven races this year. It was his 18th lifetime victory and pushed his career earnings to $89,549.
