A field of eight upper-level conditioned filly and mare pacers lined up for the featured event on Friday (May 29) at Harrah's Philadelphia.

The wagering public made Ron Burke trainee Charisma Hanover (Andrew McCarthy) the 6-5 favourite. The daughter of Dragon Again was a beaten favourite against slightly tougher in her last effort at Pocono.

At the start, it was second-favourite Fast And Fiesty (Corey Callahan) leaving fast off the wings. The Gerard Malanga trainee led until the quarter-pole (:27.1). That's when George Tackley's Bring Them Home (George Napolitano Jr.) moved aggressively out of the three-hole to clear the lead. They reached the half in :55.1. The battle continued towards three-quarters (1:23) as Charisma Hanover moved first-over to challenge the leader. As they turned for home, the passing lane opened up for Fast And Fiesty and she moved through to win by a head, stopping the clock in 1:52. P L Hula (Tim Tetrick) closed fast off of a covered trip to finish second, while Bring Them Home held third.

It was the 23rd career win for Fast And Fiesty ($5.20) and one of five driving wins on the day for Corey Callahan.
