It was a big day for harness racing driver Yannick Gingras on Sunday afternoon (June 28) at Harrah's Philadelphia. Gingras had a natural hat trick, winning races 5,6, and 7. He followed that up by sweeping the late pick three and the late double for seven wins on the program. He also swept the co-featured events on Sunday, open affairs both on the pace and trot.

In the open trot, it was Gural Hanover (Yannick Gingras) getting his first victory of the year. The 4-year-old son of Crazed was parked out the entire first quarter (:27.4) before clearing the lead. After rating the half (:56.4), he was able to maintain a solid lead throughout. He got three-quarters in 1:24.1, and the final time in 1:53, as he won by three lengths in the end. My Love Bi (Geo. Napolitano Jr.) finished second, while World Cup (Joe Bongiorno) finished third. It was the twelfth career win out of twenty starts for Gural Hanover ($4.40), who is owned by Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi, Little E LLC, and Panhellenic Stables.

In the open pace, it was Brittany Farms and John Cherveny's Allstar Legend (Yannick Gingras) winning his fourth straight. The son of Four Starzzz Shark led the first quarter (:26.1), but was cleared by Doctor Butch (Tim Tetrick) who was three wide around the first turn. Allstar Legend drafted behind this pacesetter through a half in :54.1 and three quarters in 1:21.4 before engaging the leader in the stretch. Allstar Legend went on to win by a length, stopping the clock in 1:50.1 for his seventeenth career win out of sixty-one starts. Doctor Butch was second, while Fancyfreeshark (Allan Davis) finished third. The Ron Burke trainee paid $4.80 to win.
