Classicality invaded The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono Sunday night (September 24) and wasted little time getting acquainted with the local scene, rallying from the pocket to take the $20,000 featured trot by two and a half lengths in 1:53.2.

Owner-trainer Lisa Dunn, who had shipped in Redder Than Red from The Meadows Saturday night and promptly won one level lower than this event, used the same cross-Pennsylvania pattern to win with the Classic Photo gelding Classicality, with the crowd going quickly wise and sending off the winner as the favourite, returning $7.40. Marcus Miller was in the sulky for the 38th career victory of the seven-year-old, who has amassed a bankroll of $474,142.

Two-time Québec-bred champion Wildwild Men came to Pocono to make his first United States start at age four and promptly took a new lifetime mark of 1:55 for driver Simon Allard, trainer Rene Allard, and owner Catheline Pelletier. The Muscle Mass gelding, whose full brother Seeyou Men was also a two-time Quebéc-bred champ, won by almost five lengths, and it looked as if the winner of $125,906 was ready for bigger challenges in upcoming starts at The Downs.
