Wilkes-Barre, PA --- For A Dancer posted the fastest winning time of eight divisions of the W.N. Reynolds Memorial Stakes raced on Wednesday night at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. The Reynolds are the highlight of Grand Circuit Week at Pocono.

For A Dancer, trained by Joe Holloway and driven by David Miller, was coming off a win in her debut at Meadowlands Racetrack. She took to the five-eighths mile oval at Pocono very well, winning her split by 1-¾ lengths, in 1:57, the fastest of all the Meda winning times.
