Twincreeks Jesse Captures Weiss Final at Pocono


April 20, 2013
Twincreeks Jesse put forth a tremendous effort on the front end to capture the final of the Bobby Weiss Series for 3-year-old colts and geldings on the pace on Saturday night at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. The race carried a purse of $30,000.
Twincreeks Jesse (Real Artist-Happy Ginny), who left from post position #3 in a field of eight as the 9-5 second choice, got away well and sat second early behind Deep Sea Hanover. Driver George Napoiltano Jr. wanted to control matters though, so he sent the 3-year-old gelding owned and trained by Ann DePietro to the lead on the front stretch. When the outside pressure wasn’t able to get to him, Twincreeks Jesse had to hold off a late second move from Deep Sea Hanover to win by a neck in 1:51:4. Lets Rock Together picked up the show.
Twincreeks Jesse notched his third consecutive win and fourth in seven tries this year. He now has five lifetime victories and career earnings of $50,440.
