Enough Talk, the 2010 Breeders Crown Open Trot winner, recorded his first charted line of the 2011 season Thursday, April 14 at Pocono Downs


With his co-owning trainer, Peter Kleinhans, at the controls, the eight-year-old Enjoy Lavec gelding left from Post 6 in Race 14 and recorded a gate-to-wire win in 1:56.3 over the 'fast' track. Enough Talk cut the fractions in :28.4, :58.4 and 1:27.4. The career winner of 32 races and $1.8 million trotted home with a :28.3 final quarter. The margin of victory was three and a quarter lengths.

One race earlier, 2010 Meadowlands Pace winner One More Laugh put in his second straight qualifying performance for Ray Schnittker, who is also the gelding's co-owning trainer. Having started from the rail in Race 13, the career winner of 18 races and over $2.1 million in purses took a two-hole trip through fractions of :27.3, :55.4 and 1:25 before going on to record a six and a quarter-length margin of victory in 1:53.2. The gelding cruised home with a 28-second final quarter over the 'fast' going.

Mohawk Racetrack also played host to an eight-pack of qualifying races Thursday morning.

The first race on the Mohawk docket saw five-year-old Kadabra gelding Equity put in his second straight qualifying effort of the year for driver Chris Christoforou and conditioner Charalambos Christoforou. The career winner of 15 races and $551,380 in purses started from Post 6, cut all the fractions (:28.2, :59, 1:28.3) and fired home in :28.3 for a 13-length win in 1:57.1 over the 'fast' track.

Up The Credit, the Carl Jamieson-trained Western Terror colt that has been assessed as a 45-1 shot in Trot Magazine's 2011 Pepsi North America Cup Spring Book, also recorded a victorious qualifier in Race 3. With Jody Jamieson in the racebike, the brown colt sat third through opening fractions of :29.2 and :59.2 before going first-up prior to the 1:28.3 three quarters marker.
