Six divisions of the Stallion Series went postward Tuesday evening at Pocono Downs, with Hall Of Terror turning in the quickest mile for the two-year-old pacing colts and geldings.

Hall Of Terror, who was sent off as the 6-5 favourite in his $20,000 tilt, tracked cover before brushing to the lead in the late stages of the mile en route to posting a narrow win in 1:53.1. Mark MacDonald mapped out the winning trip for the Erv Miller trainee who defeated Battle Cruiser and Sammy Said.

The son of Western Terror-Maytime Hall is owned by Ervin Miller Stable Inc, Paymaq Racing, Ronald Michelon and Louis Willinger. The $67,000 purchase from last year’s Lexington Select Yearling Sale is now a two-time winner with $20,000 in his bank account.

R N Nate parked past the quarter pole before touching down on the lead in his division, and once he cleared it was game over for the others. Tim Tetrick rolled the rookie through middle splits of :57.2 and 1:25.4 before using a :28.1 kicker to win by a nose over Cams Fernando in 1:54. Third prize went to Moonshine Road.

The son of Nuclear Breeze-R N Artist improved his rookie record to 4-0-1 from five trips postward with the win. He’s banked $15,121 for owner/trainer/breeder Roger Hammer of Bedford, Pennsylvania.

Royaltyhasarrived went wire-to-wire in his division for driver Dan Rawlings, who had the Steve Schoeffel student on the lead through sensible panels of :29.1, :59.4 and 1:28.2 before using a :27-second closing quarter to win by a nose over Cartel in 1:55.2. Third prize went to UF Larry Alltheway.

Sent off as the 4-5 choice, the son of Western Terror-Her Mattjesty scored for owners Virginia Schoeffel, Kathy Schoeffel, Jerry Dedoszak and Michael Munn. It was his third win in four tries and the lion’s share of the purse lifted his cash stash to $22,394.

Final Gesture cleared to the lead at the quarter pole and kept on rolling en route to a 1:54 triumph for driver Tim Tetrick. The Linda Toscano trainee chopped out middle fractions of :58 and 1:26.1 before finishing up his mile with a :27.4 closing quarter. It was three lengths back to runner-up Given Up Terror, with Denslow Hanover third best.

T L P Stable, Joseph Laconte and Angela Laconte share ownership on the homebred son of Shark Gesture-Real Girl, who is 1-for-2 to start his career.

My Hero Ron used a :27.2 closing panel to win by a head in his division for driver Mark MacDonald. The Erv Miller pupil cut the quarter in :28.2 before B Well slipped to the front and supplied middle fractions of :57.4 and 1:26.4. My Hero Ron sprinted home and prevailed by a head over B Well, with Shooby Said rounding out the top three finishers.

The son of Well Said-Erma La Em won for the first time in his career and pushed his lifetime earnings to $15,000 for Paymaq Racing and Ronald Michelon of Illinois. The youngster was purchased for $80,000 from last year’s Lexington Select Yearling Sale.

Letsmakeawish captured the final division in 1:53.4 by a nose for driver Matt Kakaley. The Ron Burke student, who was on the lead through panels of :27.2, :57.3 and 1:25.3, used a :28.1 closing quarter to win by a nose over Cabo Sunshine in 1:53.4. River City took home third prize.

The son of Western Terror-Dynamite Donna won for the first time in his career and lifted his lifetime earnings to $10,650 with the win. Kevin Switzer of Harrington, Delaware bred and owns the rookie.
