It was a banner day for trainer Ron Burke and driver Yannick Gingras, as the two teamed up for four wins on Sunday afternoon’s twelve-race card at Harrah's Chester Casino and Racetrack.

Transcending ($18.60) was a tenacious winner for the Burke/Gingras pairing in the featured $28,000 Winners-Over Pace, battling the Lou Peña-trained J As Outlaw (George Napolitano) up the backstretch en route to a :26.3 third quarter before ultimately prevailing by a half-length in 1:50.3. The six-year-old son of Grinfromeartoear reeled off four straight wins against preferred company at the Meadows before today's triumph.

The two also teamed up with Or ($3.40), Lucky Bettor ($6.00), and Southern Allie ($3.00). Lucky Bettor stalked favorite Cinderella Guy through a vicious :25.4 first quarter and more relaxed fractions after that before pouncing in the open stretch, winning by a half-length in 1:49.4 in a $23,000 conditioned event. Southern Allie matched the day's 1:49.4 speed mark also from a pocket trip, angling two-wide at head-stretch to overtake Valentino before pulling clear by a handy three-quarters of a length in an $18,000 conditioned pace.
