Sophomore Pennsylvania Sire Stakes horses were spotlighted during the second half of the four-day meet at the Clearfield County Fair in north-central Pennsylvania, with trotters All Set Lets Go and Bet On Tom turning in track-record performances on Tuesday afternoon (August 1).

In a $5,300 “A” division of the three-year-old filly trot, All Set Lets Go by 15-1/2 lengths in 2:02, equaling the all-age track trot mark held by males Cottonwood Sam (2003) and Simeon (2015) and breaking the divisional record of 2:02.3 set by A Little Laid Back last year. Roger Hammer drove the daughter of Donato Hanover for trainer John McMullen and his McMullen Stable, LLC.

In the last race of the day, Bet On Tom traversed the Clearfield twice-around in 2:01.2 – the fastest trotting mile ever at Clearfield – in his $5,300 “A” division for colts and geldings. Aaron Johnston drove the unaltered son of Tom Ridge to a 7-1/2 length wire-to-wire win for trainer Gary Johnston and owner Dr. William Solomon.

Three-year-old pacers took centre stage on Wednesday afternoon’s (August 2) card, with Ginger Tree Marty (trainer-driver Sam Beegle) and Marvalous Artist (trainer-driver Roger Hammer) turning in identical 1:59.1 miles, just a fifth shy of Star Of Terror’s track record for three-year-old pacing colts at Clearfield.
