There were six Pennsylvania Stallion Series divisions for two-year-old colt and gelding trotters contested at Harrah's Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon (July 22), each going for a purse of $20,000.

The first division went to the front-stepping Moneycounts De Vie (Tim Tetrick). The son of Andover Hall took the lead shortly after the quarter pole, going on to win in a time of 1:59.1. It was the first career win for the Dirk Simpson trainee, who was coming off of a double digit length qualifying romp. He is owned by Desyllas Racing, Bill Beck, and James Bafia.

Division two saw TNT Rusty (John Campbell) make every call a winning one. The son of Explosive Matter is now a perfect two-for-two in his young career, trotting the mile in 1:58.4, which was the fastest of the day in the series. He is owned by trainer George Ducharme, Paul Fontaine, and Alfred Ross.

In the third division, it was Leigh Raymer, Stephen Moss, and Harold & Helane Solomon's Mr Right (Vic Kirby) scoring on the front end. The son of Donato Hanover was able to hold of a late surge from Desert Runner (Ake Svanstedt) to pick up the victory in a time of 2:00. It was the first career win for Mr Right, who is trained by Raymer.

Division four went to Mahlon Martin's Twin B Ammunition (George Napolitano Jr.). The son of Explosive Matter swept on by past the quarter-pole and never looked back, completing the mile in 1:59.2. It was the second straight win for the Bennie Magliochetti trainee, in his fifth career start.

In the fifth division, Frank Antonacci trainee Elysium Lindy (Scott Zeron) scored the upset win. The son of Cantab Hall sat in the pocket behind another longshot, Cloud Nine Hanover (Charlie Norris), until the stretch, when he sprinted past to win in a final time of 1:59.3. The heavily favoured Yes Sir Officer (John Campbell) broke at three-quarters. It was the first career win for Elysium Lindy, who is owned by K R Breeding.

Another upset took place in the last, as Courant AB's Dollar Grin (Lucas Wallin) closed in time to pick up the win. The son of Cantab Hall was perfectly positioned second over, bailing off that cover in the lane to narrowly gun down favourite Shady McCoy (David Wade) in 2:00.2. It was the first pari-mutuel start for Dollar Grin, who is trained by Ake Svanstedt.
