There were two divisions of a non-winners of $17,500 in their last 5 starts on Sunday at Harrah's Philadelphia.

In the first division, Jake Huff trainee Statesman N was sent off as the 6/5 favorite.

As the wings opened, it was Bestjetyet firing fast for the lead, with Statesman N securing the pocket spot from post one. Coming off of a strong qualifier, Bestjetyet set solid fractions, overcoming a first over challenge from Hang Ten. In the stretch however, Bestjetyet made a break, allowing Statesman N to close up the inside for the victory, in a time of 1:51.1.

Bestjetyet finished second, but was dis-qualified and placed sixth for a violation of the breaking rule. Dreamzzzz R for U was moved up to second, while Hang Ten was moved up to third.

Statesman N is owned by Our Horse Cents Stables, P. Venturini, and J&T Silva Stables, and was one of three wins for Corey Callahan.

In the second division, Emeritus Maximus sped off the wings and never looked back.

The four-year-old son of Rocknroll Hanover faced a persistent first-over challenge from Nitro Seelster, and a late charge from National Debt, for his eleventh career win, in a time of 1:50.2. National Debt was a heart breaking second, while Nitro Seelster finished third.

Emeritus Maximus is owned by John Cancelliere, trained by Tom Cancelliere, and was driven by Corey Callahan.
