Luminosity shone most brightly in the $18,000 featured trot at Harrah’s Philadelphia on Thursday afternoon (May 16), winning by 5-3/4 lengths in 1:53.4, just a fifth of a second off his lifetime best.

Driver Yannick Gingras reserved the nine-year-old Cash Hall gelding, trained by Ron Burke for the Burke Racing Stable LLC and Weaver Bruscemi LLC, off a contested :27.3 quarter, but then gave him the word to go shortly thereafter. Luminosity did, hitting the half in :56.3 and then staying clear past the 1:24.3 three-quarters and right through the finish. Dream Massive, who four starts ago was labouring in the track’s bottom class, raced well while uncovered for second, with Sky Marshal closing for third. A winner of $826,917, Luminosity raised his strike rate to 25 per cent both for the season (4-of-16) and lifetime (45-of-180).

Luminosity was the even-money favourite, not a fact conducive to producing a single ticket selector of the 20-cent Jackpot Hi-5 bet, so the carryover into Friday (May 17) will be $28,316.19.

Friday's (May 17) racing at Harrah’s Philadelphia will take place at night, starting at 6:30 p.m. On Sunday, Meladys Monet, Top Flight Angel and Homicide Hunter will face off in a $30,000 Great Northeast Open Series event for trotters.
