The Kimberly Asher barn has just been on fire the past several months, and teamed with husband-driver Larry Stalbaum the duo has been nothing short of sensational in tallying up the victories. I am sticking with that combination to win today’s $22,000 Open Handicap Pace at the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. This afternoon Asher and Stalbaum team up with the pacer Yukon Cornelius. The nine-year old veteran pacer had no shot in his most recent start at the Downs, finishing a well beaten sixth, after following slow early fractions. Now with that race under his belt, I look for a much more assertive Yukon Cornelius early on, and I see the team of Asher and Stalbaum getting there pictures taken with this Cam’s Terrific gelding following that ninth race feature.
