Gweneeee J, winner of three straight coming into Tuesday night’s $17,000 conditioned distaff pacing feature at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, promptly continued on her form spree by going wire-to-wire in 1:51.2 to make it four in a row.

Gweneeee J, a daughter of American Ideal trained by Ross Croghan for the Let It Ride Stables Inc, was put in front early by driver Andrew McCarthy and looked in control throughout, doubling a one-length lead over pocket sitter Set Me Up in the last quarter to push her seasonal earnings to $102,265 and her lifetime account to $267,557.

McCarthy came right back to take the last race $16,000 co-feature, guiding the Western Ideal filly Tica Hanover to victory in 1:51.4. The Travis Alexander-trainee moved to the lead in front of the stands and would not be caught, raising the sophomore’s earnings to $59,120 in her first year of racing.

Pocono has four cards left on its 2017 schedule: this coming Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday (no Monday card), and then the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the seasonal closer on November 25.
