Wilkes-Barre, PA — The My MVP mare Thisisshe continued her domination of the top claiming trotters at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono on Monday (June 14), taking a new mark of 1:53.4 in the $12,800 handicap feature.
Thisisshe has frequently raced on or near the lead, but with Just Maybe The One blasting away and Clarion Hall protecting the pocket, driver George Napolitano Jr. settled the favorite in third, and the pair may have given her backers a bit of anxiety as she gapped at points as Just Maybe The One blasted fractions of :26.3, :55.1, and 1:23.4.
Clarion Hall, tagging right behind in the pocket, looked like the one who had the best chance to overhaul the pacesetter, but the energetic Napolitano and his game mare just kept digging in, winning by 1-1/2 lengths, with Just Maybe The One another length back in third.
Thisisshe now has a 9-5-2-0 scorecard in the top claiming trot class here and a meet record of 14-7-2-1. Hunter Oakes is her owner and trainer.
Napolitano won four races on the Monday card to lead the driving colony on the day.
