Tim Tetrick, the leading driver at Harrah’s Philadelphia, continued on his recent hot run with five wins on the ‪Wednesday afternoon‬ (Aug. 14) card, with the featured trot and one of the two co-featured paces among them.

The featured $16,000 trot was taken by Captain Morgan, a four-year-old son of Cantab Hall who has raced lightly but has shown much promise. Tetrick sent the winner of two straight right to the lead, put up fractions of :27.2, :56.1 and 1:25.1, then dug in to handle a last l-quarter threat from pocket sitter Lapped By Lindy to win by a half length in 1:54.3. Staffan Lind trains the developing winner for Lind Racing Stable LLC, Bender Sweden Inc., Roy Holth and Kemppisuojalampistable.

The Well Said three-year-old gelding Brassy Hanover, second in the Max Hempt Memorial behind Shake That House, showed his class in his $14,000 pacing co-feature, taking a new mark of 1:50.4. Brassy Hanover followed cover up the backstretch, was left uncovered at the three-quarters, then motored home in :28.1 to leave 80-1 shot Random Hanover 11 lengths in arrears. Eric Good owns the Eddie Dennis trainee.

Favourite V O Joe took the other $14,000 co-feature in 1:53.4 for driver George Napolitano Jr., but not until Joe McDude and Tetrick rapidly ate up ground to be only a half length shy at the finish. Napolitano appeared to have the distance measured with the Somebeachsomewhere sophomore gelding, with the pacer making it two straight for trainer Robert Cleary and the ownership of Allen Wenc and Joseph Hughes.
