Penn State Sire Division wins for Well Said sons

Two-year-old colt pacers battled in three Pennsylvania Sire Stakes splits on Monday night at a soggy and sloppy The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, and it would be sons of WELL SAID, DONE WELL and KWIK TALKIN going home victorious.

 

In the opening $51,855 tilt THIS IS THE PLAN (SOMEBEACHSOMEWHERE) carved out stations of 27 4/5, 58, and 1:26, but he gave way to a first-over DONE WELL (WELL SAID) in the lane, and DONE WELL would go on to win by 5 1/4 lengths in 1:53 4/5.  THIS IS THE PLAN regained second late when VENIER HANOVER (WELL SAID) broke stride and dropped back into third.

DONE WELL is a WELL SAID colt owned by James Stambaugh, Wingfield Brothers, Milt Leeman, and Alan Keith. DONE WELL, who was bred by Hanover Shoe Farms Inc. and sold for $45,000 at the Standardbred Horse Sale, is now a perfect four-for-four in his career to go with earnings of $93,782.  He is the second foal out of the Allamerican Native mare Dagnabit Hanover ($304,821) and a full sister to DALLENBACH HANOVER ($646,334).

 

The final flight went also went for $52,225 and KARPATHIAN KID (SOMEBEACHSOMEWHERE) set up shop on the top from post two, leading through fractions 27 3/5, 57 1/5, and 1:26 1/5, with Sheppard champion KWIK TALKIN (WELL SAID) moving first-over out of fourth before the half. KARPATHIAN KID managed to hold off KWIK TALKIN through the last turn and into the stretch, but KWIK TALKIN proved the better horse on this night in the late going, getting up to score by a length in 1:53 4/5. PRO BEACH (SOMEBEACHSOMEWHERE) finished third after a pocket trip.

KWIK TALKIN, who has won five times and finished second once in six starts, giving him a bankroll of $110,480, is a son of WELL SAID trained by Rob Harmon for owners Robert Robinson, Jacqueline Dinelle, Scott Henry, and Lisa Henry. KWIK TALKIN, who was taken out of the Standardbred Horse Sale for $18,000, is the third foal out of the Cam's Card Shark mare Kwik Dial, a half-sister to the likes of Dial Or Nodial ($1,745,040).  The 3-1 second favorite, KWIK TALKIN paid $8.20 to win.
