Billmar Scooter beat a tough group of distaff pacers to win her second straight winners of over $25,000 lifetime pace for mares in the feature race on Tuesday night at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. The race carried the night’s top purse of $25,000.
Leaving from post position #2 in a field of eight as the 2-1 second choice, Billmar Scooter, a Keystone Raider mare from the barn of Amber Buter driven by Tyler Buter, took on classy veteran Chancey Lady first over and wore her down in the stretch. The closers weren’t able to get to her as she came home a winner by 1 ¼ lengths over Mud Pie Hanover in 1:51. Red Star Hottie finished 3rd.
The win was the mare’s 5th in 14 2012 starts. It was Billmar Scooter’s 26th lifetime win, pushing her career earnings to $458,361.
