Arch Madness Dominates In Philly Trot

A Winner's Over $25,000 Lifetime Trot was the featured event on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon at Harrah's Philadelphia.

The heavy favourite was the classy Arch Madness, who has won over $4 million in his career.

As the gate swung open, it was Money On My Mind leaving quickly for the lead, but he was collared by Arch Madness just shy of the quarter. The 10-year-old gelding by Balanced Image faced mild pressure from Opening Night near three-quarters, but sprinted away to win by a wrapped up three lengths in 1:52.2. Money On My Mind finished second, while Traverse Seelster rallied for show.

Arch Madness is owned by Marc Goldberg and Willow Pond LLC, trained by Trond Smedshammer, and was driven by George Brennan, who had two wins on the day.
