CHESTER, PA - Following a pair of runner-up efforts since arriving in North America, the third time was a charm for Heaven Rocks A ($2.60), who stubbornly held his ground to parry Bettors Edge a quarter mile from home en route to a 1:50 score in a $30,000 Great Northeast Series event on Sunday afternoon (June 3) at Harrah’s Philadelphia. The six-year-old Rock N Roll Heaven gelding began his brush from midfield, as Sicily (driven by Montrell Teague) completed a :27 first quarter, put in motion by David Miller to slipstream the cover of Bettor Memories (Tim Tetrick) off the first turn before pushing clear with a circuit to go. After maintaining a stout pace through a :54.3 half, Heaven Rocks A faced a stern first-over challenge from Bettors Edge (Andy Miller) up the far side. Bettors Edge — a winner last week — worked to within a head of the leader, but was sternly rebuffed at the conclusion of a :28.1 third quarter. Heaven Rocks A powered clear off the far turn and handily maintained three and a half lengths of clearance over Always At My Place (Corey Callahan), who circled three-wide off cover to just nab Bettors Edge for second. Heaven Rocks A, who defeated Australian sensation Lennytheshark earlier this year, increased his career record to 13 wins from 30 starts.Ross Croghan trains Heaven Rocks A for Let It Ride Stables Inc., Dana Parham, and Misty Miller. by Michael Bozich, for Harrah's Philadelphia

The Betsy Ross Invitational for mares is known for featuring some of the sport's finest distaffers each year, and the 2018 edition coming up Sunday (May 27th) will be no exception. Leading the charge in overall accomplishments is three time Dan Patch Award winner Pure Country. The multiple stakes winner is making her 50th career start, sporting a robust bankroll of over $2.2 million and 25 lifetime wins. The 5-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere is making her third start of the season, and seeking her first win of the campaign. The Jimmy Takter trainee has been competing in the Great Northeast Series as of late, finishing 2nd and third respectively. She draws post number 1 and will be driven by Mark MacDonald. The race features three other millionaire mares, including Agent Q, Darlinonthebeach, and racing's newest seven digit earner Blue Moon Stride. Agent Q comes into it riding a four race win streak that dates back to November 4th of last year in a stakes event at Hoosier Park. Her seasonal debut was sharp, rallying from last at the 1/8th pole to sweep by in a Great Northeast Series race at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono two weeks ago. She followed that up with an in-hand win over this oval in a similar event. The 4-year-old daughter of Western Terror has 15 wins out of 29 starts and a mark of 1:48.4 at The Meadowlands. She draws the winningest post at Harrah's Philly, number 5. White Birch Farm's Darlinonthebeach draws post 7 for the second straight week. The 5-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere is making her 4th career start for Trainer Nifty Norman, with a win back on the 5th of May in a Great Northeast Series event at Harrah's Philly in 1:51.1. She has 18 wins out of 48 starts and a 1:48.1 mark at The Red Mile. Harness racing's newest millionaire Blue Moon Stride will have to overcome post 8 to take the lion's share. The 5-year-old daughter of Rocknroll Hanover has won two of her last three, including a win over Darlinonthebeach in her last in 1:49.4 over the Harrah's oval. The Mark Harder trainee has won 16 times in 53 starts with a 1:48.4 mark north of the border at Mohawk. Jim King Jr. Trainee Shartin N has been nearly unbeatable in the late winter early spring. She's posted wins in the Blue Chip Matchmaker Final at Yonkers and the Chip Noble at Miami Valley, earning $343,975 all ready this season. The overseas import will be facing a new and tougher group here in the Betsy Ross, but she does draw the second winningest post at Harrah's Philly, number 4. Little Brown Jugette Champion Caviart Ally has looked impressive so far in her 4-year-old season. The daughter of Bettor's Delight has shown versatility in her two starts this season, winning on the pace on May 9th and in grinding first-over fashion on May 18th. She draws post 2 for owners Caviart Farms and trainer Noel Daley. She has won 11 times in 36 starts, with earnings of $828,510. Trainer Jen Bongiorno will send the game Diva's Image from post 3. The 5-year-old daughter of Bettor's Delight has proven in her last two that she can go with the best mares in the business with a second and a third in her last two against Darlinonthebeach and Blue Moon Stride. KDK Standardbred's Apple Bottom Jeans will start from post position number 6. The 5-year-old daughter of Mr Apples earned her Invite after winning the Burning Point Series at The Meadowlands after sweeping the preliminaries. She has 18 wins out of 45 starts and is trained by Kevin Switzer. The Betsy Ross will be the 11th race on the staked-laden program, going for a purse of $150,000. It is part of a $10,000 guaranteed stakes pick 4 which starts in race number 9. The Pick 4 always has a low 15% takeout. Post Time is 12:40 Eastern. by Mike Bozich, for Harrah's Philadelphia

Chester, PA - The $150,000 Maxie Lee Memorial Invitational at Harrah's Philadelphia is one of the main pitstops of talented older trotters, and this year is certainly no exception. This year's race is highlighted by Triple Crown Winner and 2017 Aged Trotter of the Year Marion Marauder. The 5-year-old son of Muscle Hill was impressive on seasonl debut over the suburban Philly oval, stopping the clock in 1:52.1 in a Great Northeast Series Event. The Paula Wellwood trainee is up to $2.5 million plus in career earnings, with 15 wins in 39 career starts. Top contenders include twice millionaire and defending Maxie Lee Champion Crazy Wow, and Mac Nichol's Will Take Charge. Crazy Wow, 6-year-old son of Crazed, is looking for his second win of the season after coming off of a disappointing 5th place finish last week in a Great Northeast Series Event. He did battle to a :54.1 half mile, before ceding ground the final quarter of a mile. The Ron Burke trainee has 21 wins in 62 career starts. The Jeff Gillis trained Will Take Charge has been solid in 10 starts this season, with 5 resulting in wins, and a near-miss second to Harness Horse of the Year Hannelore Hanover in the Cutler Memorial at The Meadowlands. He won last week in a Great Northeast Series event despite breaking at the start. Two-time Dan Patch Award winner Broadway Donna took care of business in her seasonal debut. The 5-year-old daughter of Donato Hanover came off of a pair of good qualifiers against Hannelore Hanover, winning her debut in 1:51.4 in a Preferred Handicap at The Meadowlands. The Jim Campbell trainee is hoping to rebound after a one win season as a 4-year-old. Other contenders include Blair and Erna Corbeil's Rubber Duck, star Indiana trotter I Know My Chip, Canadian invader Warrawee Roo, and the Andy Miller charge Tuonoblu Rex. Post Time on Sunday, May 27th at Harrah's Philadelphia is 12:40 PM Eastern. Patrons are encouraged to bring the family for a fun filled afternoon which will include clowns, face painters, balloon animals, and much more. There will be food and beverage specials on the patio. ACTION AT HARRAH'S TODAY Dr J’s Kiss, knocking on the door with seconds in her last two starts, sprung an 11-1 upset in the $17,000 featured pace for mares Wednesday afternoon at Harrah’s Philadelphia, stopping the timer in 1:52.3. David Miller locked to have the daughter of Somebeachsomewhere in good position, second-over behind favored Obvious Blue Chip, but by mid-backstretch it was apparent that the chalk would not have enough in her seasonal bow, forcing Miller to send his filly three-wide to reach two-wide uncovered status by the far turn. Through the stretch Dr J’s Kiss proved the strongest, winning by ¾ of a length over pocketsitting Windy Sport, a 66-1 proposition who came up the inside to nip pacesetting Moments Of Joy for the deuce. A five-time winner in thirteen seasonal starts last year, Dr J’s Kiss needed until this, her tenth start of 2018, to finally break through to Victory Lane. Trainer Joe Pavia Jr. co-owns the winner with Steven Held and the namesake inspiration of the horse, Dr. Bridgette Jablonsky. David Miller had four wins on the Wednesday card; the father-son/trainer-driver combination of Erv and Marcus Miller teamed for three victories. by Michael Bozich, for Harrah's Chester

The purse is $150,000. Among the participants are 2017 Breeder's Crown Winner Beckham's Z Tam. The 4-year-old son of Always A Virgin closed sharply in his seasonal debut against Invitational competition at Hoosier Park. Trainer Jamie Macomber won multiple Post Time Awards, including Horsewoman of the Year. Beckham's Z Tam won the Upset of the Year Award for his surprise win in the Breeders Crown as a 3-year-old. There are two double millionaires confirmed as well in Mach It So and McWicked. An 8-year-old gelding by Mach Three, Mach It So earned over $750,000 a year ago, with wins in the William Haughton Memorial and the TVG Series Championships.

The Casie Coleman trainee is a former Pennsylvania State Champion. Trainer Ron Burke will be well represented with Filibuster Hanover. The 4-year-old gelded son of Somebeachsomewhere had a solid campaign at age 3, which was topped by his win in the Little Brown Jug over Fear The Dragon and Downbytheseaside.   The final of the three 4-year-olds in the event is Western Joe. The Chris Choate trainee, like Filibuster Hanover, won his elimination for the Confederation Cup at Flamboro in his latest. The final will be held Sunday Night (after press time).

The well-managed 7-year-old gelded son of Rocknroll Hanover paced one of the fastest miles (1:48.3) here last season, and is riding a solid form cycle with a win and a near-miss against multiple stakes winner Rockin Ron in his last two races. The final two confirmed for the 'Barry' include Stateside newcomer Heaven Rocks A and the red-hot Rodeo Romeo. Heaven Rocks A is 6-year-old Australian bred who is most noted for competing against superstar pacers Lennytheshark and Lazarus. His North American Debut occurred at Harrah's Philadelphia, where he came up a nose short against Rodeo Romeo in a swift 1:49.4. Rodeo Romeo has won 4 of his last 5 races against top invitational competition, with each of those wins going in 1:50 or faster. The all star card will also feature the $150,000 Maxie Lee for trotters and the $150,000 Betsy Ross for mare pacers.   The Great Northeast Pacing and Trotting Series will also continue on that Sunday with three events.

Marion Marauder ($6.40), 2016 Trotting Triple Crown champion, made his harness racing five-year-old debut a winning one in his $30,000 Great Northeast Series event on Sunday afternoon (May 20) at Harrah’s Philadelphia. After floating from the outside post 7 and landing in fourth behind a hotly contested pace, Marion Marauder angled out to chase a brushing Crazy Wow (David Miller) en route to a :54.1 half mile before being left uncovered up the far side.  The son of Muscle Hill sustained his gradual ascent through a :28.1 third quarter and put away Crazy Wow with ease a quarter from home before being driven out by Scott Zeron to keep the second-over Meladys Monet (Brett Miller) 1-1/2 lengths at bay in 1:52.1.  Opulent Yankee (Andy Miller) overcame mid-race traffic trouble to save third, another 1-1/4 lengths back. Paula Wellwood trains 15-time winner Marion Marauder for owners Marion Wellwood and Devin Keeling. In the first $30,000 Great Northeast event for pacing mares, Blue Moon Stride ($5.40) parried a strong first-over challenge from Darlinonthebeach to capture the first $30,000 Great Northeast split for pacing mares in 1:49.4.  Corey Callahan sent the five-year-old daughter of Rocknroll Hanover to the fore immediately as the gates sprung, and the pair controlled strong early fractions of :26.2 and :54.4 before millionaire Darlinonthebeach (David Miller) emerged from fourth up the far side.  Despite being subject to intensifying pressure off the far turn, Blue Moon Stride held her ground stoutly in the final sixteenth and edged away to defeat Darlinonthebeach by a length.  Divas Image (Tim Tetrick) followed second-over cover into a third-place finish. Mark Harder trains 16-time winner Blue Moon Stride, now a career millionaire, for Emilio and Maria Rosati. In the other distaff pacing division, Agent Q ($4.80) earned a second win in as many starts as a four-year-old, once again eclipsing Pure Country but this time doing so after advancing without cover from midfield.  David Miller put the daughter of Western Terror in motion from fourth after Pure Country (Mark MacDonald) clicked off a :55.1 half mile.  The two dueled on the far turn before Agent Q asserted at head-stretch and edged away to prevail by a length in 1:50.3.  Twinkle (Andy McCarthy) rose to reach second narrowly over Pure Country. Chris Oakes trains 15-time winner Agent Q for Crawford Farms LLC, Rochetti Cassar Racing, and R. K. Muscara. Michael Bozich

The Great Northeast Series rolled on Sunday (May 13th) at Harrah's Philadelphia with the open pacers in harness racing action going for a purse of $30,000 each. The first division featured the return of soon-to-be million dollar pacer Mel Mara (Corey Callahan), who qualified sharply in 1:51.3 over the PHL oval in preparation for his return. His bid for victory at first asking as a 9-year-old was hampered however by a break after the quarter due to a broken hopple hanger. The day belonged to the Jake Leamon trainee Rockeyed Optimist (Brett Miller) who was making his third start off of a layoff. The 7-year-old gelded son of Rocknroll Hanover was content to sit behind the speed of early pace-setter Barimah A (Andy Miller) before beginning a first-over grind just shy of the half. After a spirited battle for the lead, Rockeyed Optimist was able to sustain his bid, winning by a neck in 1:50.2 over a hard charging Always At My Place (Dave Miller). Feeling Cam Lucky (George Napolitano Jr.) finished third. The fractions were :26.4, :56, and 1:23.1, with a final time of 1:50.2. Rockeyed Optimist wins for the 31st time in his career for the ownership group of Perretti, Berkner, Battaglia, and the A&B Stables. His earnings are now over $625,000. The second division featured the North American debut of Heaven Rocks A (Dave Miller). The overseas purchase of the Let It Ride Stables, Dana Parham, and Misty Miller was coming off of a solid 1:51.1 qualifier at the Meadowlands, which included a :26.3 final quarter vs. freshman champion pacer Lost In Time. At the start, it was the two outside horses put into play early. Western Fame (Mark MacDonald) crossed over from post 8, but was quickly overtaken by the red-hot Rodeo Romeo (George Napolitano Jr.) After enjoying a mostly uncontested lead, he was engaged by Heaven Rocks A at the 1/8th pole, but was able to gamely hold off the overseas import to win by a nose in 1:49.4. Boston Red Rocks (Brett Miller) finished third. It was the 13th career win for the 6-year-old son of Rocknroll Hanover, and his fourth win in his last 5 starts. It was his second straight triumph in the series. He is owned by Oompa's Farm and Bob Mondillo, and trained by Chris Ryder. Michael Bozich

Feeling Cam Lucky (George Napolitano Jr.) continued his winning ways on Sunday in the featured harness racing event at Harrah's Philadelphia, a pace for non-winners of $20,000 in their last 5 starts. Fitting under the non-winners of 9 races portion of the condition, the 6-year-old gelding by the great sire Camluck picked up his third straight win for Owner/Trainer Gilbert Garcia-Herrera. Starting from post 7, Feeling Cam Lucky floated out early, before pouncing on the leader to clear at the quarter (:26.3). He was dominant after that - turning away the first-over challenge of Gerard N Mo (Dave Miller) to win by an in-hand length in 1:49.4, a life's best. Emeritus Maximus (Tim Tetrick) finished second, while Hall Bro (Brett Miller) closed sharply after being shuffled to finish third. It was career win nine for Feeling Cam Lucky. The victory puts him over $186,000 in career earnings. Michael Bozich

There wasn't anything lucky about the performance of Feeling Cam Lucky (G. Napolitano Jr) in Sunday's featured harness racing event at Harrah's Philadelphia - A pace for non winners of $20,000 in their last 5 starts or non-winners of 9 races or $90,000. The purse was $18,000. Starting from post 6, the 6-year-old gelding by Camluck made a 3-wide quarter brush to the top, and was super game to the wire, outfighting an equally persistent Shneonucrzydiamnd A (Eric Goodell) to win by one length in 1:50.2. Kid PK (Tony Morgan) finished third. It was the career start 100 for Feeling Cam Lucky, notching his 8th career win for Owner/Trainer Gilbert Garcia-Herrera. The win puts the gelding just over $175,000 in career earnings. He returned $14.00 for a $2 winning mutuel, keying an exacta worth $66.80, a trifecta worth $534.00, and a superfecta tallying $1,061.50 for a $0.50 cent wager. Live racing returns Wednesday at Harrah's Philadelphia, with a start time of 12:25 PM Eastern. Michael Bozich

2015 Pepsi North America Cup winner Wakizashi Hanover proved best in the featured race on Sunday (April 22nd) at Harrah's Philadelphia in an upper-conditioned level event (NW $21,000 L/5) going for a purse of $18,000. Starting from post 5, the gelded son of Dragon Again went right to the front, and made every call a winning one, stopping the clock in 1:52 en-route to a one length win. Cooperstown (Corey Callahan) finished second, while The Wayfaring Man (Yannick Gingras) was third. It was the 22nd career win in start 69 for Wakizashi Hanover (Tim Tetrick) as his earnings continue to creep closer to the $1.5 million mark. He is owned by Bruce Kennedy and the Tri County Stables of Truto, Nova Scotia and is trained by Jim King Jr. Michael Bozich

The headline going into Sunday's harness racing featured 'Winners Over' event at Harrah's Philadelphia centered around 2015 Pepsi North America Cup winner Wakizashi Hanover. The now 6-year-old gelding by Dragon Again came into the race with career earnings well over $1.4 million and a mark of 1:47.3 set last year at The Meadowlands. The day however would belong to Matias Ruiz trainee Statesman N (George Napolitano Jr). Starting from post 5, the 11-year-old New Zealand bred gelding was able to work out a perfect second-over trip, sweeping by for the win in 1:52.4 for owner Joe P Racing of Delray Beach, Florida. Race favorite Awesomeness (Jim Marohn Jr) was second, while Super Imposed N (Corey Callahan) finished third. Wakizashi Hanover got away last and had little impact. Statesman N ($19.40) picked up his 40th career win in start 199, while surpassing $700,000 in career earnings. The upset produced a $72.40 exacta, while the trifecta returned $195.40. The upset also played a role in the pick 4 payoff, which returned $6,069.00. The trainer/driver combination of Ron Burke and Yannick Gingras had 5 wins on the program. Live racing returns Wednesday with a post time of 12:25 PM Eastern. Michael Bozich
