A field of seven winners over $25,000 lifetime pacers lined up behind the starter on a beautiful Sunday afternoon at Harrah's Philadelphia. The harness racing wagering public placed their support behind last weeks winner at this class, the Ron Burke trainee Speed Again (George Brennan).

At the start, it was Sparky Mark (Corey Callahan) moving out for the lead, with the favorite Speed Again finding a spot in third from the far outside post, in a fast opening quarter of 26.2. Speed Again quickly quarter-brushed however, and seized command before the half, which went in 54.1 (27.4).

There was no rest for the favorite however, as the Mike Watson trainee Colby Jate ( Geo Napolitano Jr.) moved first over to challenge the leader, by three-quarters in 1:21.4 (27.3).

The speed backed down in the stretch however, as Musselsfrmbrussels (Ron Pierce) who sat third over the entire middle half, swept on by, winning by a head in 1:49.3. Speed Again held gamely for second, while Sparky Mark finished third.

Musselsfrmbrussels is owned by Allard Racing, Yves Sarrazin, and Ferme Bureau Et Fils Senc, and is trained by Rene Allard.

The winner paid $26.80, keying an exacta that paid $108.60, and a trifecta that paid $316.80.
