Danas Sharp Smart and Magnum Kosmos produced the fastest times in their respective classes in Saturday night’s W.N. Reynolds Memorial stakes action at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. The Reynolds races are the highlight of Grand Circuit Week at the track.

On Saturday night, there were three “Tar Heel” divisions of the Reynolds held for three-year-old colts and geldings on the pace, with purses ranging from $25,967 to $26,367. There were also two “Scott Frost” divisions for three-year-old trotting colts and geldings, each with a purse of $33,350.

Danas Sharp Smart righted himself from a recent slump with a rallying victory in his Tar Heel division in 1:51.1. Dave Palone did the driving for trainer Linda Toscano.

In other Tar Heel action, Mc Rusty, driven by George Napolitano Jr. and trained by Steve Elliott, won his split in 1:51.3, while Hone The Razor, with Matt Kakaley doing the driving for trainer, George Teague Jr., captured a division in 1:52.2.

Magnum Kosmos was a dominant force in the Scott Frost, winning his split by eight and three-quarter lengths in 1:54. Palone did the driving for trainer Tony Dinges. Palone also led Opening Night, trained by Jim Campbell, to a victory in the other Scott Frost split in 1:54:2.

Palone’s three stakes wins on the night came on the heels of four Reynolds wins on Friday.

Grand Circuit Week concludes at Pocono on Tuesday night with Reynolds races for two-year-old colts and geldings on the pace and thre-year-old fillies on the trot.
