Chester, PA -- Following two consecutive Preferred wins at Freehold, Lyons Steel ($4.40) extended his streak to three with a 1:52.3 harness racing victory in the $18,000 pacing feature on Sunday (Nov. 24) at Harrah's Philadelphia.


The 4-year-old Rock N Roll Heaven gelding and driver David Miller worked clear of Nine Ways (Tony Morgan) after a :27.1 first quarter, and then parried two separate challenges en route to the 15th win of his career. After rating a :55.4 half mile, Lyons Steel staved off a first-over push from JK Musicman (George Napolitano Jr.) through three-quarters in 1:23.4, and then dug in to defeat the late-rallying Billy Badger N (Dexter Dunn) by three-quarters of a length. JK Musicman narrowly held third over Mako Banner N (Corey Callahan).

Dennis Watson trains Lyons Steel for BD Racing LLC.

Tim Tetrick notched a grand slam on the 14-race card, winning with King Harvest ($5.80), Song Cycle Senese ($1.20), Sadiq Hanover ($13.40) and In Rock We Trust ($10.40).

Due to an insuficent amount of entries, qualifiers at Harrah's are cancelled on Tuesday.

Live racing returns to Harrah's Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon (Nov. 27), with a 14-race card due to commence at 2:05 p.m. Eastern.
