PLAINS — The Breeders Crown showcase Oct. 19 was a record-breaking night for Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs.

A record handle for the track in Northeast Pennsylvania of $3.2 million was reached, and the number was also the largest handle ever for a harness track in Pennsylvania. In 2010, when the track hosted the Breeders Crown, the total handle was $2.3 million.

The estimated crowd for Saturday night was more than 9,000 people.

Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs has extended its racing season to Saturday, Nov. 23, with a special meet-and-greet with baseball Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt on closing night from 4-6 p.m Fans may line up at 2 p.m. to secure a wristband and an authorized photo. No outside merchandise will be signed.

Friday, Nov. 22 is Fan Appreciation Night, with fans choosing a souvenir from the season from 7-9 p.m. just by showing their Racing Rewards card and valid I.D. There will be no racing Nov. 19-20.

The Grey Ghost and Poltergeist Pace takes place Wednesday. A lineup of gray or roan horses will race at Pocono Downs on the night before Halloween.


Manhattanville 3, Wilkes 2

Wilkes lost at Manhattanville on Saturday.

The Valiants scored the first goal of the game on a penalty kick at the 9-minute mark and scored a second goal 2:39 later, to put them up 2-0.

With the lead down to one the Valiants added a third goal in the 31st minute.

Michael Turner cut the Valiants lead to one when he scored in the 67th minute off of a Ryan Joyce diagonal ball.
