Wild Bill was the first and fastest PA All-Stars winner Sunday at Pocono

Full brothers to Breeders Crown winners Huntsville and Manofmanymissions were among the winners in Pennsylvania All-Stars action for 2-year-old colts on Sunday at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.  Each race carried a purse of $30,000.

Huntsville's baby brother Wild Bill (Tim Tetrick) won the first of the paces by a pair of lengths in 1:53 1/5 from first-over.  A Somebeachsomewhere-Wild West Show colt, Wild Bill competes for owner/breeder/trainer Ray Schnittker, who also bred him with Charles Iannazzo.

Tetrick and Schnittker would also win the final flight with pace-setter Lucky Leonard (Well Said-Beachy Lady) by two lengths in 1:55 1/5.  A full brother to Schnittker's multi-time stakes winner Summer Side, Lucky Leonard is owned by Schnittker, Howard Taylor, and Paul Bordogna.  Lucky Leonard was a $45,000 Standardbred Horse Sale buy and was bred by Fair Winds Farm Inc. and Steve Jones.

My Man Stony (Corey Callahan) is the full brother to Manofmanymissions, and he would win a trot split by a length and three-quarters in 1:57 1/5 after a first-over trip.  My Man Stony, a Yankee Glide-Armbro Vanquish colt who was bred by Angie Stiller and sold for $120,000 at the Lexington Selected Yearling Sale, is trained by John Butenschoen for owners William Wiswell and Pinske Stables.

You Know You Do (Yannick Gingras) brought $350,000 last year at the Standardbred Horse Sale, which was the third-highest price of the event, and he would begin his career with a 1:58 3/5 tally in his PA All-Stars test.  A Muscle Hill-You Want Me colt, You Know You Do is trained by Jimmy Takter for owners Howard Taylor, Order By Stable, Bud Hatfield, and the Mkatz Alibfeld Sgoldband partnership.  He was bred by Valley High Stable.
