Sunday's featured harness racing event at Harrah's Philadelphia was a winner's over $25,000 lifetime pace.

It was a wide open wagering board, with John Dayton's Just a Jolt going off as the lukewarm 2-1 favorite.

At the start, Yonkers invader Great Vintage fired out to the lead, but was collared by Handsome Henry K just beyond the quarter, which went in :26.4.

It remained that way until just after the half, when Corey Callahan wheeled Emeritus Maximus first over.

He was only able to muster a mild first over bid, as Handsome Henry K posted back to back 27.1 quarters to secure the victory, in an overall time of 1:49.3. Great Vintage finished second, while Voice of a Truth closed up the inside for third.

It was Handsome Henry K's fourth win in his last five races, tying a lifetime's fastest mile.

He is owned by Howard Taylor, trained by Doug Lewis, and was one of three driving wins for George Napolitano Jr. Ron Pierce also had three wins on the program.
