The Ron Burke stable sent out seven of the 25 two-year-old pacing fillies contesting in four $30,000 divisions of the Pennsylvania All-Stars contest over a 'sloppy' track Tuesday, July 17 at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, sweeping all four divisions.

The Burke Brigade, and former member-now-sire Sweet Lou, effected a sweep – including $45.80 winner Louphoria in the final division.

Louphoria, out of the mare Euphoria, was first to the lead for driver Yannick Gingras, but yielded the lead to Art Lecture and then Sylph Hanover. They sat in that order until just before three-quarters, timed in 1:25.2, when Louphoria came roaring off the rail and had her stablemate headed on the far turn.

Gingras, who handled three of the Burke winners, seemed to be measuring off the win as Louphoria tripped the timer in 1:53 a length ahead of Blue Ivy, who came between horses late to nip Sylph Hanover for second. Louphoria competes for the Louphoria Racing Stable, consisting of Burke Racing Stable LLC, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, Phil Collura, Lawrence Karr and Diamond Creek Racing.

Most impressive of the Burke Brigade winners was the Sweet Lou–Great Memories filly Warrawee Ubeaut, who tucked third mid-way around the first turn for driver Yannick Gingras, then brushed to the lead in front of the stands.

Warrawee Ubeaut claimed victory in 1:52.1 for owners Burke Racing LLC, Phil Collura, J&T Silva- Purnel & Libby, and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Shes Allright, out of the mare Atsalrite Hanover, made the lead by the first-eighth and sped home to stop the timer in 1:52.2 to win her division. Michelle Yanek partners in ownership with Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi, and Collura.

Sweet Chrome started proceedings off for the Burke barn by winning the opening division. The Sweet Lou–Camille filly took the lead after parking past the quarter, then controlled things thereafter in route to a 1:54.4 win. She competes for owners Burke Racing Stable LLC, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, M1 Stable LLC, and Jack Piatt III.
