Bettorhaveanother worked her way to the top fairly easily for driver Marcus Miller, rated the half, then sprinted home in :54.2 to equal her mark of 1:50.3 -- taken in almost identical fashion two weeks before -- in winning the $18,000 featured pace for distaffs during the Friday night card at Harrah’s Philadelphia.

Two weeks ago, Princess Fabulosa was favoured over Bettorhaveanother, but the winning daughter of Bettors Delight got to the half in :56.1 and then zipped home in :54.2 to withstand the grind of her foe. This week, Princess Fabulosa again was the crowd’s choice, but again her first-up challenge was repelled by Bettorhaveanother – who had the exact same first half (:56.1) and second half (:54.2) clockings in both events!

Ron Burke conditions Bettorhaveanother, who now has seven wins in 15 seasonal starts and a career accumulation of $349,377, for the familiar pairing of Burke Racing Stable LLC and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Driver George Napolitano Jr. was hot at both ends of the action at Harrah's Philadelphia Friday evening, winning three of the first five races and then sweeping the Late Double for a total of five wins on the card.

FINISHING LINES – The next action at Harrah’s Philly will be this Sunday at 12:40 p.m., when the track will host its "Super Sunday" of first-rate racing. The $150,000 Maxie Lee Trot (Marion Marauder is the early favourite), the $150,000 Betsy Ross Pace (with the early nod to Shartin N), and the $150,000 Commodore Barry Pace (with Filibuster Hanover the chalk off his Confederation Cup win) will be joined by two divisions of a Pennsylvania Sires Stakes for three-year-old pacing fillies, a division for each Invitational class in the Great Northeast Open Series (and these races are tough – Hannelore Hanover is in the trot), and an attempt (weather permitting) on the 1:08 world record for pacing five-eighths of a mile on a five-eighths mile track, ensuring an outstanding day of competition for the pleasure of live or simulcast fans.
