Pacer Fred And Ginger and trotter Lolique won the feature races for their respective gaits on a sloppy Saturday night at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. Each of the features were a condition for winners of over $25,000 lifetime and carried a purse of $25,000.

On the pacing side, Fred And Ginger got some revenge on Drop Red, who beat him in the same class a week ago. With Matt Kakaley in the bike for trainer Ron Burke, Fred And Ginger, the 4-5 favourite, pounced on the leader in the stretch after a pocket trip to win by two lengths in 1:51.4. Drop Red settled for the place while Bet The Town picked up the show.

For the trotters, Lolique, the 1-5 choice, controlled matters from when he took the lead at the three-eighth-mile marker all the way home. The nine-year-old standout from the barn of John Wagner won for the first time this season, as Jim Morrill Jr. guided him home to a three-quarter-length win over Dont Know Chip in 1:54.4. Sand Top Gun was third.
