Driver Yannick Gingras and trainer Nancy Takter teamed to capture two of the three featured $20,000 winners-over events on Sunday afternoon (July 5) at Harrah's Philadelphia.

In the week's top trot, Lindy Farms of Connecticut and Robert Rudolph's Eurobond ($5.60) controlled every step of a 1:51.2 mile, evading a late challenge from Ontario-invader Run Director by two-and-a-quarter lengths. The five-year-old Love You entire notched his ninth win and his first of the season.

JK American Beauty ($4.00) completed Gingras and Takter's double in the feature for distaff pacers. With Shartin N scratched due to injury, JK American Beauty was dispatched the even-money choice and lived up to that billing. After brushing to the front with a circuit to go, the four-year-old American Ideal mare turned aside the first-over threat of Gold Orchid N before stepping one-and-a-half lengths clear of a three-wide Philly Hanover in 1:50.3 for her second-consecutive win.

The afternoon's top event for male pacers saw San Domino A ($11.80) draft behind dueling leaders Highalator and Dorsoduro Hanover on the final turn before setting sail up the open stretch to win by a widening one-and-three-quarter lengths in 1:51. George Napolitano Jr. drove the seven-year-old Somebeachsomewhere gelding to the 23rd victory of his career—and seventh since arriving in the States last summer—for trainer Andrew Harris and the partnership of Joe P Racing and Oldford Racing.

Takter completed a training triple on the 14-race card with No Lou Zing ($4.20), who impressively won an $11,200 conditioned event in 1:53.2 in rein to Josert Fonseca.

Racing returns to Harrah's Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon (July 8). The 20-cent Jackpot Hi-5, which is offered daily in the fifth race, boasts a $6,183.54 carryover. Post time is 12:25 p.m. (EDT).
