Pontus need only repeat last effort to win allowance feature


Ordinarily, the performance Pontus gave on Aug. 19 at Parx Racing would have easily been good enough to win a second-level allowance race. Making his third start since joining Keith Lebarron’s barn, the 4-year-old Pontus finished 6 1/2 lengths clear of his closest pursuer going a mile and 70 yards and earned a career-best 93 Beyer Speed Figure.
