Three-year-old fillies were in action at Harrah's Philadelphia on Wednesday (May 20) as they competed in four divisions of the Pennsylvania Stallion Series, with each going for a purse of $20,000.

Bay Pond Racing's Angel Plus (Scott Zeron) was a wrapped up winner in the first division. The daughter of Quik Pulse Mindale picked up her sixth career win of 16 starts for trainer Steve Cook. She was the heavy post time favourite and went on to make every call a winning one, with fractions of :27.1, :56.3, 1:24.1 and 1:52.3. It was a lifetime's best performance. Dobre Povedane (Corey Callahan) was second, while Somewhere Fameous (Dave Miller) finished third. The winner paid $3.00.

It was a bit of an upset in the second division as Doug Lewis trainee Cover Model (Corey Callahan) went on to a two-length win. The daughter of Dragon Again showed tactical early speed from post six, landing in the third spot off the gate. She made her move just past the half and was able to grind past the race favourite, Rumor Mill (Tim Tetrick), for the win. It was the fourth win in her career and the first of the season. She stopped the clock in 1:53.1, a lifetime-best. Rumor Mill secured second, while the previously undefeated Repeat Please (Andrew McCarthy) finished third. The winner, owned by Fred Hertrich and CTC Stables, paid $10.80.

Driver Scott Zeron struck again in division three, this time with Ted Gewertz's Apricot Sour. The daughter of Well Said was able to draft in the pocket behind favourite Tucson Breeze (Tim Tetrick) until the head of the stretch. She had to hold off late charges from Alexa Said (Brett Miller) and My Girl Friend (Yannick Gingras), who finished second and third, respectively. The Anette Lorentzon trainee now has three lifetime wins out of 10 starts. She paced the mile in a life's best 1:55 and paid $5.80 to win.

In the final division, Tom Kemp's Mezzanine Fashion (Tim Tetrick) dominated the final half for the victory. The daughter of Well Said drafted in the three-spot until the half, when she moved to the outside and easily swept by. She won by three in the end, pacing her mile in a wrapped up 1:53.4. Lean On Yourself (Andy Miller) moved up the passing lane for second, while Official Belle (Scott Zeron) rallied mildly for third. Mezzanine Fashion is now three-for-four in the win column this season for trainer Joann Looney-King. She returned $4.00 to win.
