CHESTER PA - The fifth race at Harrah's Philadelphia Wednesday produced the largest harness racing win price of the season at Philly, as Anthony Morgan, #2 in North American driving victories all-time (this was win #16,251), sent Ideal Magic to the lead early, yielded to favorite Ohio Larry, then came up the inside to best that rival by ¾ of a length while returning $195.40 for a $2 ticket (there was a total of $50 bet on him to win).

Ideal Magic's price beat the previous seasonal high, set one month back to the day (October 14), when Always A Diamond fashioned a $117.20 upset.

Nice Stuff and Presidente Zette were the trotters home first in a pair of $16,000 features as the racing week opened at Harrah's Philadelphia.

Nice Stuff has now won three of her last four starts after taking the first division of the headliner in 1:56.3, missing the personal mark she set last week by a tick.

Dexter Dunn had the Yankee Glide mare well-positioned behind lively cover, and her stretch kick enabled her to overhaul the pacesetting favorite Christopher Crazo by a length, with pocketsitting Michando another half-length back in third.

Nice Stuff has proven to be a nice acquisition for trainer Bucky Angle and owners Howard and Joshua Kauffman, as she came into their possession early in September and has already bankrolled $24,250 for them.

Presidente Zette conserved ground in the other section of the feature, then was able to slip out on the far turn, tip wide, and sail past the field to equal his mark of 1:56.2. The son of Muscle Hill benefited from the well-judged drive by David Miller, coming home two lengths to the good of Campbellini for owner/trainer Cozette McAvoy,
