Is it possible to have a Friday afternoon of racing without any rain? It looks as if that’s finally the case today at Pocono Downs. Though there is no Open Handicap Fillies & Mares Pace on today’s card, it’s still a fairly good program.

Let’s take a look at a standout in the 13th race, Andy Roo. The late blooming 3-year-old gelded son of The Panderosa was awesome in his 2008 racing debut. The Erv Miller trainee was parked hard through the first quarter in :27, from post eight. Once he finally had cleared to the lead, Andy Roo then accelerated away, winning as much the best in a solid 1:53.2. He has a little bit tougher competition today, but should be more than ready to handle the task and again turn in a dominating effort.

BEST BET: OSTIAN HANOVER (10TH)

VALUE PLAY: ELKHORN STATION (8TH)
