CHESTER, PA - The hard-hitting Donato Hanover gelding Tyson recorded his second triumph in his last three starts in winning the $18,000 trotting feature at Harrah's Philadelphia on Thursday afternoon, making every pole a winning one in 1:54.

Driver Andrew McCarthy got Tyson to the lead passing the 28 quarter, then set middle fractions of 57.2 and 1:25.3, with Crazy About Pat in the pocket and Casa Palmera moving first-over from third before the latter call. In the lane the sharp winner maintained a 1¾ length margin over Crazy About Pat, with Casa Palmera another two lengths in third.

Tyson won for the ninth time in 2018, pushing his earnings this year to $116,625 and $213,800 lifetime. Ed Gannon Jr. trains Tyson, the 3-5 favorite, and he co-owns him with Frank Canzone.

In the $14,500 "Trottin' Thursday" co-feature at Harrah's, Rock Of Cashel was a 3 1/4 length winner in 1:54.2 winner for driver Corey Callahan, trainer Mark Harder, and owners Joseph Jannuzzelli and Jeffrey Ruch. The veteran son of Majestic Son, now a career winner of $598,228, retucked in the pocket down the backstretch behind pacesetting favorite Make It A Double, then easily passed that one in the lane for his third victory in his last four trips behind the gate.
