CHESTER, PA - Dream Baby Dream is exceptionally-bred - she is a Muscle Hill ¾ sister to the top 2YO filly Sonnet Grace, and her granddam is the great CR Kay Suzie - and her breeding potential was made manifest at Harrah's Philadelphia on Thursday afternoon when she won the $17,000 featured trot in 1:53.2.

Andrew McCarthy had Dream Baby Dream in the middle of a three-abreast charge into the first turn, with Magic Night to her left and favored Make It A Double to her right, and when the chalk broke her task became much easier. The winner passed Magic Night before the 27.2 quarter, rolled down the road with middle numbers of 56.1 and 1:24.3, and won by two lengths over Impacter, who had gotten a tuck behind the winner after a first-over move but could not go with her late.

Dream Baby Dream has now win half of her six seasonal starts for trainer Brett Pelling and Wiesman Farms LLC, and she pushed her career bankroll to $216,596.

In one of two $14,500 co-featured trots, the Credit Winner mare Lovely Lynnly rebounded from a break in her latest race, sitting the two-hole behind favorite Winneress then going by that one easily in the last quarter to stop the timer in 1:54.1 for driver Marcus Miller, trainer Jake Leamon, and the ownership of Hutt Racing Stable, Lynnly Stable, and Joseph Battaglia.

In the other co-feature, Wisenheimer sat the pocket trip behind Turn The Paige, charged up the inside to challenge in the lane and came up just shy in 1:54.2, but Turn The Paige bore in through the lane putting Wisenheimer into tight quarters, and thus Wisenheimer was placed first over the offending rival. Corey Callahan was in the sulky behind the victorious Jenny Melander trainee-lessee.

Also noteworthy: Sylvesteramerica IT got his first Stateside win for expatriate Jerry Riordan and wife Lisa and their Riordan Stables AB, pointed down the road by David Miller and setting blistering fractions of 27.1, 55.4, and 1:24 en route to a 1:53 triumph. Bob Baggitt Jr. has been handling the local conditioning of the Varenne gelding. And Phaetosive's full baby brother Explosivematter lowered his record to 1:57.4 as he raised his career standings to 3-2-1-0.

Pennsylvania-sired three-year-old pacing colts will command the spotlight at Harrah's Philadelphia this weekend, with three divisions of the third preliminary for each grouping. On Friday, the Stallion Series horses will be competing, while in Sunday's Sire Stakes Grand Teton, Done Well, and Hayden Hanover have been tabbed as the morning line favorites.
