WILKES-BARRE PA – Over a surface that had improved from “sloppy” to “good” to “fast” by the time the $14,000 featured mares pace took to the track on the Sunday twilight harness racing card at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, Baron Remy showed no rust after 3½ months away from the races, going on to a 1:51.2 victory.

Andrew McCarthy made a three-wide move late on the backstretch with the Yankee Cruiser mare to gain contention after a fast pace, and Baron Remy was more than equal to the challenge, getting to two-wide on the turn and then proving her superiority late. The Ron Burke trainee, owned by Burke Racing Stable LLC and Weaver Bruscemi LLC, J&T Silva- Purnel & Libby, and Larry Karr (who had his namesake horse win at Philly earlier in the day), now sports earnings of $629,122.

A couple of three-year-olds marked themselves as ones to watch while the track was still “sloppy.” Right now the Captaintreacherous filly Party Girl Hill must be thought of as “ceiling unlimited,” as after coming home in :53.2 and :53.1 in Meadowlands qualifiers and then winning her purse bow in 1:50.2 - :52.4 - :26, Party Girl Hill was sent to Pocono by trainer Chris Ryder and handled the stepup from “nw1” to “nw4” with aplomb, dominating her field in 1:52.4. Jim Morrill Jr. guided the developing miss to an easy victory for owner Tom Hill.

The Yankee Glide colt Hell Patrol seems to be finding top form at a good time, as he was guided to the top by Mattias Melander and rattled down the road in a 1:55.1 mile. Yet another in the seemingly-endless line of quality diamondgaiters from the barn of Marcus Melander, Hell Patrol is owned by Courant Inc.
