Wilkes-Barre, PA --- Sharen Hanover and Kimberlee both recorded their second victories in the Bobby Weiss Series for pacing females on Monday night (April 16) at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, where earlier in the dank evening Eric Carlson recorded his 3,000th driving victory.

Kimberlee was a 1:55.4 winner in her Weiss Series division.

The Well Said mare Sharen Hanover is now perfect in two starts for the brothers Allard, driver Simon and trainer Rene, as she quarter-moved to command and went on to win her $15,000 division of the series’ third preliminary leg. Three lengths clear at the end of a 1:55.3 mile in sloppy conditions, the mare appears to be peaking at just the right time for owner Geoffrey Mounds.

In the other section, the Rock N Roll Hanover filly Kimberlee, who won in the first round and then sat out last week, raced just off a contested pace, then caught the series’ only double winner in the first two prelims, Miss Hill, by a half-length in 1:55.4. Marcus Miller was in the sulky behind the winner, now undefeated in three seasonal starts, for trainer Åke Svanstedt and the ownership of Knutsson Trotting Inc. and Asa Sjoberg.
