George Napolitano, Jr. won at Harrah's with Wisenheimer
A field of eight lined up behind the gate for the Thursday featured at Harrah's Philadelphia, a trot for non-winners of $17,500 in their last five starts.
 
Jenny Melander lessee Wisenheimer (Geo. Napolitano Jr.) earned the public's support, coming out of races against much tougher competition. The 5-year-old son of Revenue S was keen to go on from the outset, assuming command as the wings closed.
 
He raced unchallenged the entire first half, which he accomplished in 56.2. The Bill Mac Kenzie trainee Pilatus (Ron Pierce) applied mild first over pressure, but his bid was quickly haulted, as the leader sprinted away to lead by three lengths at the top of the stretch.
 
Yonkers invader Bastille (Dave Miller) and Ron Burke trainee Omnipotent (Matt Kakaley) came with determined stretch rallies, but fell short to finish second and third respectively.
 
Wisenheimer was one length clear in the end, stopping the timer in 1:54.1, for career win number fifteen.
 
The winner paid $4.80, keying a $22.40 exacta, and a trifecta that paid $111.60. Winning driver George Napolitano Jr. ended up with three wins on the day.
 
Driver Matt Kakaley finished the afternoon with four driving wins.
