The freshmen trotting fillies Pub Crawl and Insta Glam added a Pennsylvania All-Stars victory to their cards at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono on the Sunday (July 19) card after winning a Pennsylvania Sire Stakes at The Meadows in their previous start.

Pub Crawl raced first, and the daughter of Bar Hopping–Myth moved to the lead early for driver Andy Miller, got a soft half, then came home in :57.1 to hold off pocket-sitting DDs Diamond by three-quarter lengths in 1:56.4. Julie Miller conditions the winner for the Andy Miller Stable Inc., Louis Willinger, Kapildeo Singh and Phillip Helmuth.

Insta Glam, the fastest Sire Stakes winner with a 1:55 mile, was not expected to emerge with the same honours after a rainstorm turned the track to “sloppy” and lowered the mercury 11 degrees for her final All-Stars division. However, Insta Glam commanded her competition in a :57.2 last half through the off going, defeating pocket-sitter Evening Stroll by one-and-three-quarter lengths. A daughter of Father Patrick out of Hollywood Hill, who has a millionaire mother and half-brother, Insta Glam is owned by Goran Falk and Christina Takter and was backed by driver Yannick Gingras and trainer Nancy Takter– who had teamed for a famous victory 21 hours earlier.

The $600,000 yearling Ineffable (by Cantab Hall out of the 1:52.1 world champion Jolene Jolene) recorded his first victory in the fastest of the four $30,000 All-Stars divisions, making two moves to control the pace then fighting off the stretch threat Flawless Country by a nose in 1:56. Brian Sears, top driver on the card with three victories, drove the chancy filly for the Melander Machine and owners Menhammar Stuteri AB and the S R F Stable.

Cantab Hall picked up a second siring credit with Mazzarati, who had been just a neck behind in third in Pub Crawl’s Sire Stakes victory. Here the daughter of $1.3M-winning mare Falls For You followed the front ones in the 3-spot against the pegs until the three-quarters, then trotted to the fore in the lane to win by one-and-a-quarter lengths over Myreanna in 1:57.1. Tim Tetrick was in charge of the winner for trainer Lucas Wallin and the Mazza Racing Stables Inc.
