On Tuesday afternoon (August 11), three-year-old pacing colt Allywag Hanover was victorious during statebred action, as the third leg of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes for the 'glamour boy' division was contested at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.

Allywag Hanover, by Captaintreacherous, paced to a 1:49.1 win in his Tuesday assignment. The Brett Pelling trainee flashed gate speed early in his mile, which he hasn't displayed in his races this season. Allywag Hanover controlled the tempo for driver Tim Tetrick and stepped home in :53.4 – and he needed to. No Lou Zing, who put forth a pair of moves in the mile, came gunning for Allywag Hanover late, but ended up just a length short when all was said and done. With the victory, Allywag Hanover pushed his seasonal scorecard to 4-1-1 from six starts and increased his lifetime earnings $189,903. The bay colt is owned by the Allywag Stable.

Sandbetweenmytoes, a Somebeachsomewhere gelding trained by Jim Campbell for Fashion Farms LLC, produced an eye-catching win in his Tuesday tilt. With Dexter Dunn calling the shots, Sandbetweenmytoes came first-over against the highly regarded pacesetter The Greek Freak. Sandbetweenmytoes would go on to pace his own last half in :53 despite no cover. He drew off to a five-length victory while lowering his record to 1:49 and raising his lifetime earnings to $112,878.

In the other PASS split, Somebeachsomewhere colt Cattlewash produced his best mile of the current campaign while lowering his mark to 1:50.1. David Miller sent the Ron Burke trainee to the front, and they withstood a late charge from Barrage Hanover to score by three quarters of a length for owner W J Donovan.

There were also five divisions of the complementary Stallion Series contested during the card, and Seriously Hanover (1:51.1), JK Lucky Charms (1:50.4), Revolt (1:51.4), Sunuma Beach (1:51.2), and Ruthless Hanover (1:51).
