Millionaire pacer Dial Or Nodial delivered on his pari-mutuel promise in the $30,000 top class at Harrah's Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon.
Driver David Miller worked out a perfect pocket trip aboard Dial Or Nodial in the Winners Over Pace, following runner-up Statesman N and Tim Tetrick through fractions of :26.4, :54.4, and 1:22.2. The 3-5 favourite unleashed a :26.2 final frame to come on for the season's best 1:49 victory. Second choice Statesman N finished over one length behind while Europan Union and Andy Miller, the longest shots on the board at odds of 45-1, finished four and a quarter lengths back, edging out Voice Of Truth and Corey Callahan for third.
Dial Or Nodial, who has finished no worse than fourth in all eight of his seasonal starts, returned $3.40 to win.
The consistent seven-year-old homebred son of Western Ideal notched his 30th career win while lifting his bankroll over $1.6 million for trainer Jim Campbell and Fashion Farms.
