There were 3 divisions of PASS events for 2-year-old filly trotters held at the harness racing meeting at Harrah's Philadelphia on Thursday afternoon (Aug. 13) each going for a purse of approximately $78,000.

In the first division, it was part of the Charlie Norris trained entry Synonymous Hanover rallying to win.

The daughter of Andover Hall drafted in mid pack throughout much of the race, as second-favorite Best Of Dreams (Andy Miller) set the tempo.

Race-favorite Windowshopper made a break early on.

Synonymous Hanover swung wide for the drive at the top of the stretch, narrowly out closing the John Butenschoen charge Lookin Sharp (Corey Callahan) to win by a nose, stopping the clock in 1:58.

She paid $21.40 to win.

Ultra-long shot Sand Grenade (Yannick Gingras) finished third.

In the second division, it was Brittany Farm's Twice Is Right (Yannick Gingras) going all the way to win.

The daughter of Donato Hanover went right to the front from post 1, setting fractions of :28.1, :57.2, and 1:26.3, with an overall time of 1:56.2.

It was the second career win for the Jimmy Takter trainee, pushing her lifetime earnings beyond $50,000.

Ultimate Shopper (Tim Tetrick) rallied for second, while Maker A Yankee (Marcus Miller) was third.

Twice Is Right paid $11.60.

In division three, it was Paul Holzman trainee Whitelake Hanover remaining unbeaten.

The daughter of Explosive Matter floated off the gate into third, before quarter-brushing to the front.

There were some anxious moments in the stretch however, as upset-minded Maeve Quaider (Corey Callahan) made the most of a pocket journey to finish just a neck behind, with Parimutuel Hanover (Andy Miller) finishing a distant third.

The final time was 1:57.4.

Whitelake Hanover is now a perfect 5 for 5 for owners Omar Beiler, Dennis Coons, and Sue Oakes. She paid $2.60.
