Perfect Alliance Coasts in Weiss Final at Pocono


April 23, 2014
Perfect Alliance kept her record spotless in 2014 by coasting to victory in the $30,000 final of the Bobby Weiss late closer series for three and four-year-old trotting fillies on Wednesday night at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs.
Perfect Alliance (Credit Winner-Yalta Hanover) came into the final with eight straight victories, including three preliminary wins in the Weiss, to start the season. Leaving from post position #6 in a field of seven as the 1-9 favorite, the 4-year-old mare from the Julie Miller barn sat second at the quarter but quickly sped by Dough Dough on the front stretch to take the lead. Driver Yannick Gingras had to do little coaxing from that point as Perfect Alliance confidently trotted home 1 ¼ lengths ahead of Dough Dough in 1:53:3. Clementine Dream finished third.
Perfect Alliance now has nine wins in nine races this year. She has 11 wins in her career and her lifetime earnings now stand at $165,001.
