Favourites Shes Pukka N ($6.60) and Shoobee Doo A ($3.80) both rode the pocket to victory in their respective $16,200 pacing features on Sunday (June 20) at Harrah's Philadelphia, while leading driver Tim Tetrick continued to pad his advantage atop the local standings with five wins.

In the week's top distaff pace, Shes Pukka N and driver Tony Morgan stalked Eclipse Me through fractions of :25.4, :55.3 and 1:23 before angling off the pegs late and lunging to a neck victory in 1:50.4 while driven out. April Ava saved third after saving ground throughout.

Brian Malone trains Shes Pukka N, a six-year-old daughter of Betterthancheddar with 18 wins and over $262,000 in earnings to her credit, for Peter Venturini.

Shoobee Doo A took a similar path to the winner's enclosure, yielding to Alluneedisfaith N for the pocket after setting a :27.1 first quarter. After sitting behind an extended duel between Alluneedisfaith N and Respect Our Flag through middle splits of :55.1 and 1:22, Corey Callahan took aim to the open stretch with the six-year-old son of Shoobees Place, and he responded willingly for his 21st win — a 1:49.3 score with plenty in reserve. Alluneedisfaith N preserved second, three-quarters of a length behind. Jacks Shadow N lifted off cover for third.

Trainer Dylan Davis shares ownership of Shoobee Doo A, who has earned over $154,000 in his career, with Michael Casalino Jr.

Tetrick's five driving wins on the program were led by 2019 Little Brown Jug winner Southwind Ozzi ($3.80, 1:50.3) and 2020 Progress Pace winner Fortify ($3.00, 1:50).

Racing returns to Harrah's Philadelphia with a 14-race card on Wednesday (June 23) and a $1,484.85 carryover in the day's first Super Hi-5, which occurs in the third race. First-race post is 12:25 p.m. (EDT).
