WILKES-BARRE, PA - The World Of Rocknroll mare Clarebear took another successful step up the class ladder at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, winning her third straight with a 1:52.1 harness racing victory in the $17,500 mares pacing feature on the Tuesday twilight card.

Driver Eric Carlson was insistent on the lead going out of the gate, then after getting early pressers to take back, in a :27 opener she yielded to the brushing Baron Remy in front of the stands. Baron Remy continued on to middle fractions of :55.3 and 1:24.1, but it was Clarebear who showed the most late speed, using the Pocono Pike to overhaul the pacesetter by 1½ lengths. The winner, who is trained by David Russo for the Cavalli Veloci Stable LLC ("cavalli veloci" is Italian for "fast horses"), boosted her lifetime bankroll to $298,983.

There were a pair of $15,000 trots as co-features. In the first, the Donato Hanover three-year-old gelding Crossfit advanced with cover, went on uncovered after his cover broke on the far turn, then caught pacesetter Fire'N Woodshed by a half-length while taking a new mark of 1:55.4. Matt Kakaley drove the winner for trainer Ron Burke and owner Joe Sbrocco.

In the other trot, 30-1 shot Darty was four-wide early in going to the lead and maintained the advantage to the wire as the outer tiers were stagnant, with pocketsitter Voodoo Man closest at the wire, a half-length behind, at the end of the 1:56.1 mile. Marcus Miller was at the controls of the sophomore altered son of Yankee Glide as he won for trainer John Butenschoen and the partnership of Harmony Oaks Racing Stable, David Miller, In Over My Head Stable, and VIP Internet Stable LLC.

In a $14,000 mares pace, The Charging Moa N ran her North American record to two-for-two while lowering her mile record to 1:51. The daughter of Changeover has lived up to her name in both starts here - last week charging up three-wide on the far turn and going on to an impressive score, this week charging three-wide in front of the stands for driver Tyler Buter to clear before the second turn and going on to a 1¾ length victory over $990,778 winner Medusa. Trainer Rob Harmon looks like he has a mare who will be climbing the class ladder for Harmon Racing Stable LLC, Winners Circle Racing LLC, Howudoin Stable, and Richard Lerner.
