The first qualifying session of Pocono Downs’ 2016 season took place on Tuesday morning (March 8) and 11 dashes went postward.

Race 5 produced the fastest trotting time of the session, as Chipoffthewall, a three-year-old black gelding trained by Syl King Jr. and driven by Anthony Napolitano, triumphed in 1:56.4.

Race 8 produced the fastest pacing time of the session, as Toatsmygoats hit the wire first in 1:54 for trainer Nick Surick and driver John Kakaley.

Pocono’s second qualifying session of the season is scheduled for Wednesday, March 9 at 10:00 a.m. Next Wednesday (March 16) will also feature qualifying races, as will each Wednesday after that.

The track will open for its 2016 live season on Saturday, March 19 (firat-race post time will be 6:30 p.m.). In March, racing will be held on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and in April, racing will move to the regular schedule of Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Saturday.
