WILKES-BARRE, PA - A pair of Always B Miki sophomore harness racing pacing fillies, So Irresistible and Incaseyoudidntknow, came right back to run their Bobby Weiss Series records to 2-for-2 with tallies in their respective $17,500 second preliminary legs Monday afternoon at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.

So Irresistible came with an uncovered sweep on the second turn to grab command early in the backstretch, pacing out her own back half in :54.3 to stop the timer at 1:53, a length ahead of 35-1 shot Beach Crazy. Scott Zeron was again behind the Bruce Saunders trainee as she remained perfect in three seasonal starts for owners Charles and Julie Nash.

SO IRRESISTIBLE REPLAY

 

Incaseyoudidntknow became the fifth nose winner within a span of nine races at Pocono when she outdueled 28-1 shot Carrington after that one had gotten to equal terms with her in the Pocono Pike, with another first-week winner, Milieu Hanover, settling for third in the 1:53.1 mile. Marcus Miller, a three-time winner on the day, kept the career winner of 6-of-7 starts alive late to win for trainer Les Givens and owners James Magno and Joseph Fonte.

INCASEYOUDIDNTKNOW REPLAY

 

The Weiss subtheme of "chalk defeats longshot" also played out in the other series cut, as the Roll With Joe filly Roll On Mama made a successful debut for owner/trainer Gilbert Garcia-Herrera. The 8-5 chalk defeated 15-1 shot Baci Baci by 1½ lengths in taking a new mark of 1:53.1 under the guidance of George Napolitano Jr.

ROLL ON MAMA REPLAY

 

Also deserving mention is Toronto, another Always B Miki offspring, a sophomore colt out of double champion See You At Peelers. Toronto sped his individual back half in :54.2 brushing to the lead heading to the three-quarters for driver Tyler Buter and then breaking his maiden in 1:52.2 in just his second lifetime start. Robert Cleary conditions this talented individual for Royal Wire Products Inc.

Anthony Napolitano was star driver of the day with four visits to Pocono's Victory Lane.

Tuesday's 12:30 card will feature the second Weiss prelim round for sophomore trotting fillies, going in three $17,500 divisions. The only one of the first week's three winners coming back on Tuesday, the Chapter Seven miss Trip Sevens, could be very tough to deny in her tenth race cut.
