Surfer Beach may be starting to pace into his considerable pedigree, as he won a $10,400 pace on Tuesday afternoon (Nov. 3) at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.

An altered son of Somebeachsomewhere out of the double millionaire Southwind Tempo, Surfer Beach did not race at two, and he won only one of his first 13 races at three. He has now won two of his last four starts, though, including his 1:52.3 Tuesday triumph. In his most recent victory, Surfer Beach went to the front for the track’s leading driver, George Napolitano Jr., and proved much the best, as he went on to win by five and a half lengths for trainer Brian Malone and owner Peter Paul Venturini.

The Napolitano brothers completed a sweep of the pacing divisions for the class when Anthony drove the Bettors Delight mare Mossdale Lottee N to her first U.S. score. The Kiwi import came from 11 lengths back at the quarter to win the female section of the condition by three and three-quarter lengths in 1:53.2. The winner is trained by Jose Godinez for Godinez Racing Stable LLC.

In the division of this class for trotters, the two-year-old Tricky Dick also came from well off the pace (10 and a half lengths behind at the half) to win by a nose over Gerard while taking a mark of 1:57.1. And whoever bet the altered son of Winning Mister – Pictures Of Millie got a $78 return on a $2 win ticket. Tricky Dick took the 'Election Day' victory for driver Mike Simons, the 'Pocono Trot Man,' and owner/trainer/voice of the PA county fairs Jim McGettigan.

Anthony Napolitano bookended the card with winners and also scored with Mossdale Lottee N to emerge as the day’s leading driver with three victories.

There are only three more cards left in the 2020 season at Pocono, all of which will get underway at 12:30: this coming Saturday and Tuesday, and then closing night, November 15, where there will be a mandatory distribution in the Rainbow High 5 pool, which will bring a carryover of over $239,000 into play.
