WILKES-BARRE PA - The eight-year-old Mach Three mare Regil Elektra showed the qualities that have enabled her to become a racetrack millionaire, overcoming a 25-day layoff and a first-over trip to take the $14,000 featured pace for mares Tuesday at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.

Simon Allard reserved Regil Elektra in third as former Iowa star Juxta Cowgirl put up fractions of 26, 55.3, and 1:23.1, with the winner getting going in high gear past that last station. In the lane Regil Elektra showed her gameness to wear down Juxta Cowgirl in 1:51.2, finishing a length to the good.

Trained by Keith Armer, the winner pushed her lifetime tally to 46 wins and $1,033,503 in earnings, and is owned by the Fred Monteleone Stable LLC.

During the card, 2016 Rising Star of the Year Marcus Miller was honored by The Downs for having recently achieved his 3000th lifetime victory in his still-young career.

The 29-year-old is currently fifth in the driver win standings at Pocono. Perhaps Marcus's uncle Andy, like his nephew a former Chicagoland driving champion, was taking some notes during the winners circle presentation -- Andy himself is only a dozen wins away from 9000 career triumphs.
