Just four more live racing cards remain in the 2012 season at The Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, with twelve races on tonight's slate.

The featured race on the card is a $20-25,000 Claiming Handicap Trot, with Up Front Ben looking to be the winning selection. The eight-year old Andover Hall stallion has been on a tear of late, winning five of his last six starts, including an easy wire-to-wire score against similar company just last Friday. I see no one in this race that can contend his early speed, nor keep up with this fast trotter and look for leading driver George Napolitano to take Up Front Ben to the pacesetting position early and never look back in that seventh race.
