CHESTER PA - The Mach Three mare Maching Me Zilly received some good fortune when two scratches took her from the second-worst post at Harrah's Philadelphia (PP7) to the best (PP5), and then she made the most of the opportunity by posting her second straight harness racing win, this one in 1:54.3 to take the $17,000 featured distaff pace Wednesday afternoon at the riverside oval.

Driver Yannick Gingras made two moves to control the throttle with the favored Maching Me Zilly, and then they dug in during the last 5/16 to withstand the first-over bid of second choice Oneida Blue Chip by a length. Trainer Scott Di Domenico trains the winner, who still has a start in this "nw 8 races" class as this is only her seventh lifetime triumph, for owners John McGill, Brian Carsey, and Triple D Stables Inc.

The two-year-old trotting filly Sky Is Mine made her pari-mutuel debut a victorious one in 1:58.4 for trainer Noel Daley and All Laid Out Stable Inc. The daughter of Muscle Hill and Raising Roxanna (she a full sister to $595,000 winner Raising Rachel) was put on the lead past the quarter by driver Andrew McCarthy and was in control from there, with the 2-1 second choice reporting home 2½ lengths clear of favored Havree De Grace while coming her own last half in 58.

FINISHING LINES - There will be a special live card at Harrah's next Tuesday, the day before the Fourth of July, with a special post of 2:05 p.m. Featured that day will be Pennsylvania-sired three-year-old trotting fillies - who will be glad not to have the looming shadow of Manchego (who's in the Beal Championship this Saturday at Pocono) lurking about.
