Chester, PA -- Over a year after winning his previous Harrah's Philadelphia appearance, former Indiana harness racing standout Shnitzledosomethin ($4.00) once again proved dominant at the riverside oval by way of a 1:50.4 victory in Sunday afternoon's (July 12) featured $14,400 top-level pace.

Corey Callahan sent the 5-year-old son of Fred And Ginger to a clear lead over Ideal Feeling (Tim Tetrick) through a sharp :26.2 first quarter, but was able to pull the pace back to a :55.4 half before facing a stern first-over challenge from Gratian Hanover (George Brennan) up the far side. Shnitzledosomethin responded well to outside pressure, using a :27 third split to dismiss Gratian Hanover and subsequently opening up 4-1/4 lengths of clearance on Ideal Feeling for a facile 1:50.4 win. Bettor Memories (Dexter Dunn) lifted wide off third-over cover to finish third.

Dylan Davis trains Shnitzledosomethin for Howard Taylor, Ed Gold, Abe Basen and Richard Lombardo. The 17-time winner now has prevailed in two of his three Harrah's Philadelphia starts to date, with his lone defeat being a third-place finish in an Open event last June.

George Brennan and Tim Tetrick led all drivers with four wins on the 14-race card, while Davis' two training wins were matched by Ron Burke and Jim King Jr.

The 20-cent Jackpot Hi-5 carryover continues to grow, now standing at $8,895.55 when racing returns on Wednesday afternoon (July 15). Post time is 12:25 p.m. Eastern.
