Corey Callahan drove the fastest pacer and trotter at the baby races Wednesday morning
CHESTER PA – Driver Corey Callahan guided the swiftest winner on both the trot and the pace during a morning session for two-year-olds at Harrah’s Philadelphia on Wednesday.

The filly Scirocco Donnahill became the first 2:00 trotter on a 5/8-mile track (as reported at press time) when she won in 1:59.2, setting all the pace and then tacking on a 29 last quarter. The John Butenschoen trainee is a daughter of Muscle Hill out of the Donato Hanover mare UF Tady’s Donato, who is a half-sister to $1M winner Hez Striking.

On the pace, Sugar Factory also made every pole a winning one, hitting the half in 59.4 then scooting home in 55.2 to complete the 1:55.1 package, 2/5 of the season’s record for baby colts. Tom Cancelliere trains the son of Sweet Lou-Cam Swifty, she a 1:50 pacer and million-dollar winner during her racetrack career.

The Erv Miller stable had a particularly successful day in sending out four winners, with his son Marcus handling all four before shuffling off to Buffalo with a total of 2999 lifetime victories. Other stables who had multiple winners were those of John Butenschoen and Jake Leamon, each of whom had a pair.
