Two divisions of a Non-winners of $12,500 in their last five starts on the pace highlighted the Wednesday card from Harrah's Philadelphia.

In the first division, it was George Hartman's Arsenal scoring the win. The heavy post time favorite brushed to the front just beyond the quarter. He maintained a one length advantage until the top of the stretch, when long shot Ideal Champ made his bid. In the end however, Arsenel held on, stopping the clock in 1:52.1. Democracy N rallied on for third.

Arsenal, a six-year-old son of Artiscape, is trained by Mark Kesmodel, and was one of three wins on the day for Tim Tetrick.

In the second division, the public put their faith in the Ron Burke trainee Transcending, sending him off as the even-money favorite. Long shot Cambassador had other ideas.

Starting from post one, Cambassador got shuffled to fifth, before finding room in the stretch to rally for the win, in a time of 1:51. Pacesetter Big Bad Eli finished second, while Santanna One rallied for the show spit.

Cambassador is owned by Bill and Barb Ethier, and is trained by part owner Steve Lablanc, and was driven by Scott Zeron.
