  • McArdle's Lightning Scorches Competition in PASS at Mohegan Sun

    May 18, 2015
         The first leg of PASS for 3 year old pacing colts took place Saturday evening at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. The first and fastest $56,442.00 division was won by McArdle's Lightning (McArdle-Winning Venture-Jate Lobell) who made a dramatic move from last to first in scorching his competition by 3 1/4 lengths in 151.1f. Looking like a seasoned veteran, this three year old has sounded the alarm early that he is poised to be one of the top 3 year old colt pacers on the tough Pennsylvania circuit this summer. Maybe he can fill McWicked's shoes and represent McArdle well this year. Congratulations to his owner and McArdle Syndicate member, Lightning Stables, LLC, Florida; trainer, Steve Elliot; and, driver, Anthony Napolitano. McArdle is having another banner year in the breeding shed in Ohio. Even though this is his third year standing in Ohio, he has surpassed last year's numbers and has booked well in excess of 100 mares for the third year in a row. Thank you to all the breeder's for your support!
