St Somewhere Dominates Breeders Crown’s First Freshman Filly Elim

WILKES-BARRE, PA – Yannick Gingras drove St Somewhere to a 1:52.2 win in the first of two Breeders Crown eliminations for two-year-old filly pacers at Pocono Downs on Oct. 19. 
 
St Somewhere watched Queen Of The Pride and Annie Hill leave quickly but Queen Of The Pride took a few bad steps and could not get the lead. Annie Hill couldn’t hold on too long racing smoothly as St Somewhere brushed first over and took over the lead at a first quarter in :27.1.
 
Once on top, St Somewhere, the race favorite for trainer Ron Burke, cut the half in :56.4 and three-quarters in 1:24.2 as Queen Of The Pride led the second tier and tried to rally with Treacherous Reign looking to go three wide for a charge.
 
None of the action behind St Somewhere mattered much as the daughter of American Ideal floated past the finish line to win in 1:52.2. She paid $5.20 to win.
 
Annie Hill got the best inside trip and finished second, while Queen Of The Pride managed to finish third after making more bad steps that cost her ground. Also making the final was fourth-place finisher Prescient Beauty.
 
Burke Racing Stable, P. Colllura, J & T Silva and Pumel & Libby own St Somewhere, who was bred by Crawford Farms.
