Bettor Trix N remained undefeated after four North American starts courtesy of a 1:53.2 triumph in the $17,000 featured distaff pace on Wednesday (Oct. 17) at Harrah's Philadelphia.

Driver Tim Tetrick, a three-time winner on the day, sent Bettor Trix N to the lead just past the :27.4 quarter, then got a rest of :57.2 to the half before three-year-old Mink Pink ranged alongside to challenge. Mink Pink got by Bettor Trix N before the 1:24.3 three-quarters, but Tetrick kept the Kiwi import’s mind on her game, and she rallied in the stretch to catch Mink Pink for a 1-1/2 length victory.

Tetrick, trainer Jim King Jr., and owners Donna Poillucci and JoAnn Looney-King are all part of Team Shartin N as well.

There were three $16,000 co-featured events on the card – one for male pacers, and two for trotters. In the pace, Macadoodledoo, who has been performing well against stakes company, quarter-moved to command and posted a 1:52.4 victory for driver George Napolitano Jr., trainer Mark Silva, and owner Jeffrey Snyder. Hes Electric was second behind the winning son of Somebeachsomewhere, two lengths back; Talbotcreekwhiskey was another neck behind.

Talbotcreekwhiskey’s stablemate Ex Hanover had more success over the Philly oval, taking the first division of the co-featured trot while lowering her mark to 1:55.3. Daniel Dube had to go first-over with the sophomore, but she was determined in the stretch and defeated Armageddon Seelster by half a length for the Determination ownership entity and trainer Luc Blais.

In the second trot, Meadowbranch Ricky made the lead at the quarter for driver Tony Morgan and then withstood a long first-over bid from Fashion Forever to win by 2-1/4 lengths in a lifetime best 1:54.3. Jenny Melander conditions the Muscle Massive gelding for owner Hans Enggren.
