Cavill Hanover came off the stakes trail and promptly wired his rivals in a career-best 1:55 to take the $16,000 trotting feature on Wednesday afternoon (July 10) at Harrah’s Philadelphia.

Trainer-driver Åke Svanstedt sent the three-year-old Muscle Mass gelding to the lead, and the pair took the field through fractions of :27.4, :57.4 and 1:25.4. Favoured Daylon Phantom advanced three-wide on the final turn and loomed menacingly, but Cavill Hanover had more than enough to turn back his late charge by 1-1/2 lengths.

The Wolfgang A Stable Inc., Boris Nasstrom and Little E LLC share ownership in Cavill Hanover.

In a $14,500 pacing event, favourite Ideal Wheel brushed to the lead after a :26.3 quarter and was challenged by a parked Santiago Style before the :55.3 half. The two continued their fight past the 1:23.4 three-quarters and into the stretch, where Ideal Wheel gave way. Meanwhile, Santiago Style had Western Hill on his back from the second turn, and Western Hill rallied past the gallant Santiago Style to win by three-quarters of a length in 1:52.3.

Corey Callahan guided Western Hill to his second straight win for trainer Ed Gannon Jr., who shares ownership with Frank Canzone.

Tim Tetrick, the leading driver at at Harrah's Philadelphia, had five victories on the program.
