Wilkes-Barre, PA — The freshman trotting fillies Pub Crawl and Insta Glam added a Pennsylvania All-Stars victory at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono on the Sunday (July 19) twilight card after winning a Pennsylvania Sire Stakes at The Meadows in their previous start.
Pub Crawl raced first, and the daughter of Bar Hopping–Myth moved to the lead early for driver Andy Miller, got a soft half, then came home in :57.1 to hold off pocket-sitting DD’s Diamond by three-quarters of a length in 1:56.4. Julie Miller conditions the winner for the Andy Miller Stable Inc., Louis Willinger, Kapildeo Singh, and Phillip Helmuth.
After a rainstorm turned the track to “sloppy” for the final division, Insta Glam definitely was in command in a :57.2 last half through the off going, defeating pocket-sitter Evening Stroll by 1-3/4 lengths in 1:56.2. A daughter of Father Patrick out of Hollywood Hill, Insta Glam is owned by Goran Falk and Christina Takter and was backed by driver Yannick Gingras and trainer Nancy Takter.
The $600,000 yearling Ineffable (by Cantab Hall out of the 1:52.1 world champion Jolene Jolene) recorded her first victory in the fastest of the four $30,000 All-Stars divisions, making two moves to control the pace then fighting off the stretch threat of Flawless Country by a nose in 1:56. Brian Sears, top driver on the card with three victories, drove the filly for trainer Marcus Melander and owners Menhammar Stuteri AB and S R F Stable.
Cantab Hall picked up a second siring credit with Mazzarati. The daughter of $1.3 million-winning mare Falls For You followed the front ones in the three-spot against the pegs until the three-quarters, then trotted to the fore in the lane to win by 1-1/4 lengths over Myreanna in 1:57.1. Tim Tetrick was in charge of the winner for trainer Lucas Wallin and Mazza Racing Stables.
