Team Mac, Greystone Watchman tops at Pocono

Wilkes-Barre, PA — Team Mac and Greystone Watchman each paced in 1:53.1 to win the twin $13,000 pacing features at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono on Tuesday afternoon (Sept. 20).

Team Mac, a sophomore Bettor’s Delight gelding who got into the race off the also-eligible list, was second-over entering the stretch and rallied to win by a half-length over pacesetting Always Better in his third straight victory. Anthony Napolitano drove for trainer Victoria Stratton and the partnership of VIP Internet Stable LLC and Stratton Stable Inc.

Greystone Watchman sat a perfect pocket trip, went to the lead in the Pocono Pike, and outpaced the uncovered favorite PBR Street Gang by a neck to take a new mark in the other feature division. Braxten Boyd engineered the 8-1 upset with the altered son of He’s Watching for trainer Herbert Lux III and owner Robert John Becker.

The drivers of the two feature winners split half of the card’s 14 races between them. Braxten Boyd brought home four winners while Anthony Napolitano checked home first three times — the triple gave Napolitano 13 driving tallies through this week’s programs.

Pocono resumes racing on Saturday (Sept. 24) at 1:30 p.m.; the mountain track’s regular fall schedule calls for racing on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday afternoons. Program pages for all Pocono races are available via the PHHA website.
