Three Divisions of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes for harness racing 3-Year-Old Colt and Gelding Trotters were contested at Harrah's Philadelphia on Thursday afternoon. Each went for an estimated purse of $75,000.
 
The first division went to Wheelsandthelegman. The son of Donato Hanover fired fast off the wings, coasting to an easy win in 1:55.1 to remain undefeated in four lifetime starts. Wheelsandthelegman is owned by Beth Carroll of New Holland, PA, trained by Walter Carroll, and was driven by Jim Raymer.
 
The second division was won by Stall Tz's Nuncio. The talented Andover Hall bred was patiently driven the opening half, storming home the final half in :56.3 under minimal urging. Nuncio trotted the mile in 1:54.3 for his sixth career win. He was making his first start in 2014 after making $461,074 as a 2-Year-Old. Nuncio is trained by Jimmy Takter and was driven by regular driver John Campbell.
 
The third division was won by Charlie Norris and Leonard Buckner's Datsyuk. The son of Explosive Matter enjoyed the pocket trip behind heavily favored Don Dorado, and was able to outduel the favorite in the stretch to win by one length in 1:55.3. Datsyuk is now a perfect two for two in the win column, and was driven by Charlie Norris.
