Feeling You, driven by Jim Morrill Jr., was impressive Wednesday, May 5 in winning the $41,000 Wilkes-Barre Pace for three-year-old fillies at Pocono Downs.

The three-year-old Cambest filly was sent off as the 1-9 favourite in the race and didn’t disappoint. Morrill Jr. was first up before the three-eighths pole in the race after David Miller and Holiday Shopper led the opening split timed in :27 seconds.

Feeling You quickly became the new leader, getting to the half in :55.4 and three-quarters in 1:23.3 before winning in 1:51.2, a new life mark. She won the race by almost two lengths over second-place finisher Naughtytiltheend (Joe Pavia Jr.) with No Bad Luck (Montrell Teague) two and one-half lengths back.

“I’m feeling better than she [Feeling You] is,” said a happy George Berkner, the trainer of the winning horse. “However, I must give credit to Sam DiPinto and his wife. She [Feeling You] was really a handful when they started to work with her. Last year, we turned her out and she didn’t race.”

Feeling You swept the Wilkes-Barre Pace, winning the two previous legs in 1:52.3 and 1:54.4. The three-year-old filly has won six of seven starts this season with one third place finish and has a winning streak of four straight following the Tuesday night win.
