Scorpion Moon returns to Pocono after a rather easy win against Open company at Vernon Downs on June 14. The striking 6-year-old gelded son of Armbro Scorpion has really had a solid season, winning eight times in just 16 starts. He’s already taken a liking to the Downs surface, registering a first- and second-place finish in two visits to the five-eighths-mile oval. Reined by Mike Simons, once again look for the Tracy Brainard-trained trotter to break into the winner’s circle for race No. 9, the featured $20,000 Open Trot.
