Driver Brett Miller won with two daughters of Somebeachsomewhere, as five divisions of a $150,000 Pennsylvania All-Stars event for state-sired two-year-old pacing fillies were held over a sloppy track Tuesday at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.

Brett Miller rallied Heels On The Beach out of the pocket and into a :28.2 final quarter to take the fastest division in 1:53.2 by 1-½ lengths for trainer Larry Remmen and owner Brad Grant. Brett then handled the homebred Pure Country in winning in 1:54.1, with back panels of :55.2 and :26.3 after a quarter-move making people sit up and take notice. Jimmy Takter conditions the promising miss for Diamond Creek Racing.

The clocking of 1:54.1, and the winning tactic of quarter-moving, were matched by the Well Said filly Eloquent Grace and Yannick Gingras, in triumphing for trainer Ron Burke and the ownership combine of the Burke Racing Stable LLC, Ed Gold, Howard Taylor (who has not driven a losing horse in two days short of two years), and the J And T Silva Stables.

Well Said then completed a siring double while David Miller completed a driving double behind I Said Diamonds who was a wire-to-wire winner in 1:54.2 for trainer Chris Oakes and owners Omar Beiler, Dennis Coons and Susan Oakes.

David Miller’s earlier success came with the only non-favoured winner of the quintet, Tipton Teeez (though as the $5.40 second choice she paid less than favoured Heels On The Beach’s $6.00). Quarter-moving was again a winning path to Victory Lane, as the Western Terror miss stepped home in 28 to complete a 1:56.4 package for trainer Brian Brown and owner Jennifer Brown.
