WILKES-BARRE PA - My Lindy Winner emerged as the only double winner in the first two preliminary legs of the Bobby Weiss harness racing Series for male trotters at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, winning on Sunday in 1:56.4 despite a sloppy track, considerable rain, and swirling, occasionally strong, wind.

My Lindy Winner was sent to the front off the first turn by driver Jim Morrill Jr., rated a moderate half, then sprinted off to an insurmountable lead that wound up being four lengths at the finish. The four-year-old Credit Winner entire is now undefeated in five 2019 starts for the Rob Harmon stable after notching only one win at two and three combined. His ownership consists of Vincent Laurenzo, Howard Taylor, and Thomas Lazzaro.

Chapter And Ruth, like many other winners this evening, found the front end a good place to be, going 27.4 down the back to build up a big advantage, then withstanding Got No Money Honey by 1½ lengths while taking a new mark of 1:56.4 despite the messy track. Simon Allard handled the assignment behind the Chapter Seven four-year-old gelding for trainer/brother Rene and Allard Racing Inc.

The other Weiss section saw a pair of horses undefeated in 2019, pacesetter Omaha Omaha and pocketsitter Archway, fighting it out late, and in keeping with the speedfavoring night, the Muscle Mass four-year-old gelding Omaha Omaha held off his rival by a neck in 1:57.2 to push his seasonal tally to 4-for-4. Matt Kakaley kept the winner rolling to the wire for trainer Mark Harder, and owners Glenn Goller and Abraham Basen.

Tyson gained control of the racetrack just past the quarter and was never again headed in winning the $21,500 high-end conditioned trot in 1:55.1. Andrew McCarthy drove the altered son of Donato Hanover as he came home in 57 to beat Golden Son by 1 1/4 lengths for trainer Ed Gannon Jr., who is also co-owner of the winner of $248,050 with Frank Canzone.
