The Liberty Bell Series continued on Wednesday afternoon at Harrah's Philadelphia, with the three-year-old fillies taking front and centre stage. There were five divisions for trotters and three divisions for pacers, each going for a purse of $30,000.

The first trotting division was taken by John Butenschoen trainee Fine Tuned Lady (Corey Callahan). The high-percentage winning daughter of Cantab Hall-Pine Chip went right to the front, setting fractions of :28, :57.2, 1:26.1, and completed the mile in 1:55. She gamely held off the late bid of the pocket-sitting Sianna Hanover (Joe Bongiorno) for her 11th win in 24 starts. She pushed her earnings lifetime earnings over the $600,000 mark for owners Bill Wiswell and M & L of Delaware.

Division two saw Cool Cates (Andy McCarthy) score the front-end victory. The Noel Daley charge was engaged by Hot Mess Hanover (George Napolitano Jr.) at the five-eighths mark, but was able to rebuff that bid to win in 1:55.1. Leet Hanover finished second, while Hot Mess Hanover faded to third. It was the sixth win in 16 career starts for the daughter of Yankee Glide-Dance To Market, who is owned by All Laid Out Stables.

Another gate-to-wire victory in division three, this time to Charlie Norris trainee Treviso. The daughter of Muscle Massive-Valbonela was able to rate the mile (:29.2, :59.4, 1:28.3, 1:56.3), mostly because two top contenders (Caviart Wonder and No Bus For Us) made breaks at the start. It was Treviso's 11th career win in 20 starts, with earnings just below $300,000. She is owned by Klis Brothers Stable and Carrie Norris.

Linda Toscano trainee Crann Tara (Tim Tetrick) made a miraculous recovery after an early break to score in division four. The daughter of Donato Hanover-Shan Richess broke around the first turn, losing nearly 10 lengths before recovering to sweep on by in 1:56.2. It was her eighth career win in 21 starts. Race favourite Itsgoodbequeen (Marcus Miller) broke at the start. Crann Tara is owned by Bill Donovan.

The fifth division went to Joe Jannuzzelli's EZ Passer (Jeff Gregory). The daughter of Crazed-Musclegrad used a pocket trip to her advantage, driving up the passing lane to win in a time of 1:55.3 for trainer Mark Harder. It was her seventh win in start 26, with earnings now more than $130,000.

The first pacing division went to Sweetest Emotion (Tim Tetrick). The daughter of Rocknroll Hanover-Sweet Paprika rallied strong down the stretch to sweep on by in 1:52.3 for owners Pinske Stables, Enzed Racing, and Carter Pinske. It was her fifth career win from 25 starts, with earnings in excess of $85,000.

Yves Sarrazin's YS Tallia (Simon Allard) was game in victory in division two. The daughter of Western Ideal-Bolero Tallia brushed powerfully to the top, and never looked back, stopping the clock in 1:53.1. It was her fifth career win in 15 starts, with earnings exceeding $95,000.

The third and final pacing divison was won by Nick Surick trainee Ella Christina (Tim Tetrick). The daughter of Western Ideal-Arthroscopic made the front-end, but yielded the lead to race favourite Caviart Ally (Andy McCarthy). Ella Christina used the passing lane for room past the eighth pole, drawing off willingly in a time of 1:51.4 for owners Surick Stables, J L Benson Stables, Bill Daggett Jr, and Lawrence Vukovic.

Driver Tim Tetrick had four driving wins on the program, including three in The Liberty Bell Series.
