Three year old trotting colt Caviar Crown (1.53.1) and three year old trotting gelding Shermans Mountain (1.53.3) each set world records in their divisions of Pennsylvania Sires Stakes races at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs on Friday evening, June 12, 2009.

Here is the USTA report:

Two World Records Set at Mohegan Sun in PASS Harness Racing

Friday, June 12, 2009 - by John Zimich, publicity director, Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs

Wilkes-Barre, PA --- In an amazing night of racing at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs on Friday evening, June 12, world records were established in two of the seven divisions of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes for 3-year-old trotting colts and geldings.

Caviar Crown, trained by Kris Rickert and driven by Dave Palone, won the opening division of the sire stakes in a world record time of 1:53.1 for a 3-year-old trotting colt over a five-eighths-mile oval.

Leaving from the two hole, Palone and Caviar Crown sat second in the pocket behind 1-9 favorite 4 Top Chef with David Miller in the sulky. Top Chef took the seven-horse field to the opening stanza in :27.3, the half in :56.2 and three-quarters in 1:24.4. Top Chef and Caviar Crown battled coming down the stretch before Caviar Crown stopped the timer in the world record time with Top Chef second and Cesar A Blue Chip (Tim Tetrick) third.

Caviar Crown, owned by Dale B. Wareham, was winning for the second time in four starts this season.

Several races later, in the sixth of seven divisions carrying purses of $35,000-plus and $36,000-plus, it was Shermans Mountain (Jim Morrill, Jr.) establishing another world and track mark for 3-year-old trotting geldings, stopping the timer in 1:53.3.

Chris Oakes, one of the leading trainers at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, trains Shermans Mountain, now a winner of three straight Pennsylvania Sire Stakes races. Shermans Mountain has won six of seven starts in 2009 with one second-place finish. Triumphant Caviar (Palone) was second to Shermans Mountain with Shibboleth Hanover (Mike Simons) third.

Winners of the other sire stakes divisions were Broadway Bistro (Tetrick) in 1:54.3; Tagyoureit Hanover (Howard Parker) in 1:55.1; Explosive Matter (Ron Pierce) in 1:54.2; Salutation Hanover (Morrill) in 1:55.1; and Even Better Odds (Tetrick) in 1:55.2.

In addition to the world records, Farasyoucansee became the second fastest pacer ever at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in winning a conditioned event with a time of 1:48.4. Only Shadow Play has ever gone faster at the Northeastern Pennsylvania racetrack and that win was in 1:48.2, a world mark for a 3-year-old pacing colt.

Morrill was in the bike with Farasyoucansee. This 5-year-old gelding is trained by Virgil Morgan, Jr. and has now won six of eight starts in 2009.
