CHESTER, PA - The Bettor's Delight mare Delightful Dragon raised her lifetime bankroll over the $800,000 plateau with a 1:52 victory in the $14,500 distaff pacing feature at Harrah's Philadelphia on Friday afternoon.

Driver Eric Carlson pulled behind cover from fourth nearing the half, then started a three-wide sweep when that cover started to falter nearing the ¾. Crossing back over to two-wide midturn, she had powered up to leader Nerida Franco N, who had set fractions of 26.1, 55.1, and 1:23.1, by headstretch, and through the lane she paced away as much the best, taking her earnings to $802,866 for trainer/owner Noel Daley.

Only four drivers gained admittance to the Harrah's winners circle on the Friday card. Both Andrew McCarthy and George Napolitano Jr. brought home five winners; Eric Carlson won the feature as mentioned above and took the very next race as well; and Pat Berry bookended the card for his driving double.
