The tote board nearly exploded in the featured tenth at Harrah's Philadelphia, a trot for nw/$17,500 in their last 5 or nw/9 races or $90,000.

Off the wings it was mega long shot Westside Lindy who charged for the lead from the outside with favorite Modest Prince quickly taking over just beyond the quarter.

They stayed that way until the public's second choice, Whata Donato, made a determined first over bid. However, the Burke trainee made a break at three-quarters, allowing the pocket-sitting Westside Lindy the length of the stretch to grind to victory, at odds of 50-1.

Another long shot Sea Raven closed up for second, while Looking Hanover was third. Race favorite Modest Prince tired to finish fifth. The exacta paid $1,922.40, while the trifecta paid $20,478.40. Westside Lindy is owned by Jonathan Klee Racing and The Red Parrot Stables, trained by Walter Carroll, and was driven by soon-to-be Hall of Fame Driver David Miller.
