Billmar Scooter used a pocket trip and harness racing's passing lane to capture the featured mares pace of the week for a second consecutive time on Tuesday night (June 19) at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs.
The race, which was contested by mares who are winners of over $25,000 lifetime, carried the night’s top purse of $25,000.
Leaving from post position #4 in a field of seven as the 8-5 favorite, Billmar Scooter, a 7-year-old mare from the barn of Amber Buter with Tyler Buter in the bike, left early and settled in the pocket while Dawn’s Legacy jumped to the early lead.
That’s where Billmar Scooter stayed until the stretch, when she used the inside passing lane to score for the second straight week, this time coming by two lengths in 1:50:2.
Southwind Jazmin was second while Mud Pie Hanover rallied for the show.
Billmar Scooter, sired by, now has won four out of six in this class since arriving at Pocono. She has 7 wins in 18 races this year and 28 lifetime victories, giving him career earnings of $491,611.
