Maching Me Zilly and Lifetime Trust slugged it out through the stretch of the $17,000 pacing feature for distaffs on Wednesday afternoon (June 20) at Harrah’s Philadelphia, and in the end, the first-over Maching Me Zilly found the reserves to keep her rival at bay late in a lifetime best of 1:52.2.

A daughter of Mach Three driven by Yannick Gingras for trainer Scott DiDomenico, Maching Me Zilly came coverless off the second turn with Lifetime Trust on her tail. Maching Me Zilly worked to the lead, but could not clear pacesetting Jayes A Lady around the far turn, with Lifetime Trust tipping three-deep past the middle of the turn to launch her bid. But that bid would come up a neck short against the game winner, who is owned by John McGill, Brian Carsey, and the Triple D Stables Inc.

Two-year-olds made their first pari-mutuel appearance at Harrah’s Philadelphia for 2018. The winner of the contest for juvenile trotting fillies was Cardinale, a daughter of Cantab Hall and Mississippi Beauty, who made every pole a winning one in 1:59.1 as the chalk. Andy Miller, only nine wins away from 9,000 career driving victories after visiting Victory Lane three times Wednesday, was in the sulky for trainer Julie Miller; the Andy Miller Stable is co-owner with Willow Oak Ranch and O’Donnell Equine.

Yannick Gingras also had a triple on the card, while Eric Carlson, Andrew McCarthy and David Miller each steered home a pair of winners.
