Someheartsomewhere, a three-year-old full sister to the great Somebeachsomewhere, recorded her third consecutive qualifying victory Thursday, May 26 at Pocono Downs.

Owned by Ronald Michelon of Northbrook, Illinois and John Carver of Rapids City, Illinois, Someheartsomewhere (Mach Three--Wheres The Beach) went sent forth to Post 4 during Pocono's fourth qualifying dash of the morning.

Matt Kakaley sent the pupil of trainer Erv Miller to contest the lead by the :29.2 opening quarter, at which point the $210,000 yearling purchase was overland in second by a nose.

Having cleared to the lead in the second panel of the dash, Someheartsomewhere spun off the middle fractions in :28.3 and 1:26.3 before cruising home in :29.2.

The filly posted a four and a half-length margin of victory and stopped the clock in 1:56.

The three-year-old DR Ackerman-trained and driven Chocolatier filly Creme De Cocoa kicked off the session by posting a wire-to-wire victory in 2:00. The 2010 American National and Kentuckiana Stakes winner was qualifying after having broken stride May 19 at the Meadowlands Racetrack in what was her 2011 pari-mutuel debut.

Pocono Downs hosted a total of 10 qualifying races during its May 26 session.
