Dynamic Youth captured his second straight Preferred pace in Saturday night's feature at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs and equaled a world record in the progress. The race carried the night's top purse of $25,000.
Leaving from post position #3 in a field of seven as the 2-5 favorite, Dynamic Youth (-Always True), a 4-year-old gelding from the barn, was third at the quarter-mile marker but made his move for the lead on the front stretch.
Once he cleared prior to the clubhouse turn, no one was able to take the lead away. Driverdidn't have to urge him on much as Dynamic Youth rolled across the line 1 ¼ lengths ahead of Artache Hanover while Uncle Goodfellow picked up the show.
The winning time of 1:48:1 by Dynamic Youth matched the world record for 4-year-old geldings on the pace on a 5/8-mile oval. That mark was set earlier this season at Pocono by Live On.
Dynamic Youth, owned by Ken Tucci, C&G Racing, and J&T Silva Stables, picked up his second straight Preferred win at Pocono and his sixth victory overall in 16 tries this season.
The win, the 15th of his career, pushed his lifetime earnings to $788,637.
