Wilkes-Barre, PA---Sire Cantab Hall emerged as the star of the show during five $30,000 divisions of a Pennsylvania All-Stars event for 2-year-old trotting colts Tuesday (July 5) at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, as he was the father of the three fastest winners.

President Lindy won the fastest PA All-Stars split in 1:57 for driver Andy Miller.

Quickest of the quintet was President Lindy (Cantab Hall - True Diva), who made a big move during the third quarter, then coasted home to win a laugher by eight lengths in 1:57 in his first victory. The colt is handled by Team Orange Crush, driver Andy Miller and trainer/wife Julie, and he is owned by Andy Miller Stable Inc. in partnership with Gty Stable and Lindy Racing Stable, the latter also the breeder.

Second-fastest Tuesday winner was Rubio (Cantab Hall - Italienne Girl), who rallied from the pocket into a 56.3 last half, going outside in the stretch while Snowstorm Hanover on his back ducked to the Pocono Pike, with Rubio more photogenic by a neck.

The 1:57.2 final time made Rubio the only winner not to take a lifetime mark, as he won his purse debut at The Meadowlands in 1:57 for driver Yannick Gingras, trainer Jimmy Takter, and owners Christina Takter, John and Jim Fielding, and Brixton Medical Inc.

The other winner was Affair Of Honor (Cantab Hall - Fireworks Hanover), who had his task lightened when favored Chromeo broke in the pocket headstretch, as he went on to win by two lengths in 1:57.4. The colt is owned by William Wiswell, Jean Goehlen, and Eugene Schick.

The braintrust behind Affair Of Honor is driver Corey Callahan and trainer John Butenschoen: with the win of Affair Of Honor, they have now combined for seven stakes victories since May 15. Win No. 6 was in another All-Stars cut with the Yankee Glide - Mazda Hanover colt Giveitgasandgo, who came up first-over on the turn and was getting the measure of pacesetter Phi Alpha when that one lapsed from stride late. The final time of 1:58.2 includes a 27.3 personal kicker for the winner, owned by Harmony Oaks Racing Stable Inc., David Miller, Lawrence Means, and VIP Internet Stable LLC.

The other All-Stars winner was Factofthematter, an Explosive Matter - Simba Kosmos colt who swung three-wide off the final turn and certainly finished explosively, winning by 5-½ lengths in 1:58.3. And the fact of the matter is that Factofthematter, now unbeaten in two purse starts, hails from one of harness racing’s hottest stables – that of his breeders, Rick and Regina Beinhauer. With this win Rick Beinhauer has won with the last five charges he’s sent to post, and as a driver he’s now won half of his dozen seasonal starts.
