Chester, PA -- Our Max Phactor N ($6.40) and George Napolitano Jr. sustained a first-over push into stout fractions on his way to victory in Sunday afternoon's (Aug. 11) $30,000 Great Northeast Open Series pacing event at Harrah's Philadelphia, while Tim Tetrick picked up five driving wins on the 14-race card.

Our Max Phactor N was unhurried from post two in the early stages, content to let Mach N Cheese (Simon Allard) and Tiger Thompson N (Andy McCarthy) duel through a :26 first quarter before commencing his first-over ascent into a :54 half. Up the backstretch, the 7-year-old Art Major gelding made his strongest advances, pushing a head past Mach N Cheese nearing three-quarters in 1:20.4 and putting away that rival on the far turn.

Off the home corner, Our Max Phactor N was driven out to evade a late rally from Slick Tony (Tony Morgan) -- who swung off third-over cover -- by a diminishing neck in 1:49.4. Donttellmeagain (Tim Tetrick) improved belatedly to finish third.

Trainer Andrew Harris's A Harris Racing LLC co-owns Our Max Phactor N with Michael Goldberg Racing LLC, Bruce Areman and the Prem Dan Stable.

Tetrick once again had the hot hand on Sunday afternoon, teaming up with Paprike Blue Chip ($4.60, 1:52.2), Mister Ohanzee A ($5.60, 1:51), Blake North ($6.80, 1:49.4), Sky Is Mine ($9.40, 1:56.3) and Maroma Beach ($3.40, 1:51.4).

Racing returns to Harrah's Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon (Aug. 14), with a 14-race card slated for a 12:25 p.m. start.
