It was nothing short of a banner day for Tim Tetrick at Harrah’s Chester Racetrack on Monday, as the reinsman made seven trips to victory.

One of those wins came in the $32,000 Open Handicap Pace with Hypnotic Blue Chip, who paced the mile in 1:49.3. He also laid claim to a second overnight event and three divisions of the I-95 Late Closing Series for older pacers.

Most impressively, however, was one of his two wins in the Blue Route Late Closing Series for three- and four-year-old pacers, driving St Elmo Hero to his sixteenth career victory in as many starts.

Racing mainly in the Midwest until now, John Barnard's St Elmo Hero sat a pocket trip behind Meirs Hanover (Yannick Gingras) in their $20,000 split of the Blue Route. Past a three-quarter split of 1:23.1, Tetrick moved the four-year-old Western Hero gelding off the back of Meirs Hanover, kicking away at will by four lengths to score a 1:50.3 victory.

Unraced at two and three, St Elmo Hero showed a wicked turn of foot in the last quarter, coming home in a :27-second clip to push his career record to 16-for-16.

Tetrick also took a Blue Route split with Real Hero (1:51.2), while Diablo Seelster (George Napolitano - 1:51.2), No Monkeys Allowed (Yannick Gingras - 1:51.3) and Artlight Hanover (George Napolitano - 1:52.2) also were victorious.

Tetrick also visited the winner's circle in three of the five $25,000 I-95 splits aboard Riggins (1:51.2), Aliveandwell N (1:51.4) and Schoolkids (1:51). Yannick Gingras took the other two divisions with Biletnikoff (1:50.4) and Lucky Bettor (1:51).
