2012-07-03

Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs is celebrating July 3rd with a special early Post Time of 5:00 p.m. and a night full of “stars” – All-Stars, that is – and a spectacular fireworks display.  
The first night of the Pennsylvania All-Stars kicks off on Tuesday, July 3rd with six divisions for 2-year-old trotting colts & geldings and six divisions for 2-year-old pacing colts & geldings. 
“You’ll be seeing some of the future stars in the sport during this Grand Circuit Week,” Race Secretary Rick Kane revealed. Ray Schnittker, who has developed outstanding younger horses in the past such as Deweycheatumnhowe, sends out Red Rock, son of The Panderosa, and Cowboy Terror, a son of Somebeachsomewhere.   
In the trotting divisions, the Hall of Fame honoree Jimmy Takter trains High Bridge, son of Cantab Hall, fresh off a win in a baby race.  The Ron Burke trained Arctic Tale, son of Donato Hanover, who  trotted to his baby win in 1:58, and Tigress’s Legacy, son of S J’s Caviar, trained by David Wade, with a 1:58 2/5 win in a baby race, will both be looking  for another win to cement their mark as future stars. 
The Pennsylvania All-Stars continues Wednesday, July 4th; Friday, July 6th; Saturday, July 7th, and Sunday, July 8th with the regular Post Time of 6:30 for all nights. 
Fireworks immediately follow the Tuesday, July 3rd race card of 16 races.
