Two-year-old pacing colt Plus One was the fastest of five first-time winners in the Pennsylvania Stallion Series held at Harrah's Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon (July 12).

Tim Tetrick put the popular Somebeachsomewhere-Major Crush colt on the lead in their $20,000 division after the 28-second opener and rated a second panel to reach the half in :58 before picking up the pace again through three-quarters in 1:26.2 and sealing the deal with a :27.2 final frame with Yupper (Ponder-Real Nasty Miss) in pursuit. Plus One scored the 1:53.4 victory following a pair of close runner-up efforts over The Meadows. Bred by Diamond Creek Farm, the Bruce Riegle trainee was a $55,000 yearling purchase from the Lexington Select Sale and is owned by Peggy Carter, Chuck Grubbs, Neal Kresheck and Joseph Whitacre. .

The win gave Tetrick a Stallion Series double as was also victorious in the first division with Joseph Jannuzzelli's homebred Iluvtomakemoney, who held off Go West Go Fast (Western Ideal-Female Champs) by a neck in 1:54.3. Mark Harder trains the gelding by Well Said out of millionairess Symphony In Motion.

Grand Teton (A Rocknroll Dance-Western Montana) won at first asking in 1:55.1 by four lengths with Brett Miller driving for trainer Jimmy Takter. The Diamond Creek homebred is a half-brother to Dan Patch Award winner Pure Country.

Also bred by Diamond Creek, Trajectory was a winner in his first career start in another division. After being parked through the :27.1 opening quarter, the 11-1 shot cleared to command and later held off favourite Heartbeat Hill (Somebeachsomewhere-Pretty Katherine) in 1:55 for driver Yannick Gingras and trainer Ron Burke. The Somebeachsomewhere colt is the first foal out of millionairess Ginger And Fred. He was a $140,000 yearling purchased from the Harrisburg Sale by Burke Racing Stable, Edwin Gold, Howard Taylor, and J And T Silva Stables.

Closing from mid-field in another Stallion Series division, Beachjama (Somebeachsomewhere-Silk Pajamas) was victorious in 1:54.4 (:28.4) for driver Corey Callahan. Steve Elliott trains the Somebeachsomewhere-Silk Pajamas colt, who was a $75,000 Harrisburg acquisition for Marvin Rounick.

In other action, the Nova Scotia-bred sophomore pacer Lawrencetown Beach debuted for new connections winning in a 15-1/2 length romp and establishing a new lifetime mark of 1:50.1 in his third career win. The Somebeachsomewhere Stakes runner-up was purchased privately last month by Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, M1 Stable and Phillip Collura.
