Somestarsomewhere, who has been gauged as the 9-1 third choice on Trot Magazine’s 2014 Pepsi North America Cup Spring Book, recorded his first charted line Wednesday morning (April 24) at the Meadows in Pennsylvania.

In rein to driver Tony Hall for trainer Ron Burke, Somestarsomewhere, a Somebeachsomewhere colt, started from the outside Post 7 in Race 2.

Somestarsomewhere was parked in third when the opening quarter flashed in 28 seconds. The career winner of $137,137 was second when the half-mile marker came to life in :57.3, but was out and on the move in the third quarter.

Somestarsomewhere was up on the engine before the third call, and clicked off the station in 1:26.2. He had opened up a two-length lead by the time he hit the head of the lane, and went on to post a two and a half-length victory in 1:53.3 off a :27.1 final quarter.

Somestarsomewhere made 10 starts as a two-year-old and compiled a record of 4-1-3, including sub-1:50 wins at both the Red Mile and Pocono Downs.

Two dashes later in Race 4, Limelight Beach, the 22-1 tenth pick in Trot’s Spring Book, put in his second qualifying performance of the 2014 campaign.

With Dave Palone in the bike for trainer Brian Brown, Limelight Beach, a gelded son of Somebeachsomewhere, went to the top from Post 4 and did all the roadwork. The career winner of $210,192 clicked off the fractions in :28.1, :56.2 and 1:24.2 before coming home with a 28-second final quarter. The winning time was 1:52.2 and the margin of victory was one and a half lengths.
