Driver Tim Tetrick was the star of the Sunday afternoon card at Harrah's Philadelphia winning five of the 14 races, including the featured event.
The wagering public put their support behind eight-year-old gelding Dream Out Loud N in the $25,000 featured pace for non-winners of $27,500 in the last five starts. The son of Bettors Delight was coming off of a fast-closing third against similar at Yonkers Raceway.
Driver Tim Tetrick settled into fourth in the early stages, as Teddy Baker trainee Getitoffyourchest (Marcus Miller) and Ron Burke charge Outrageous Art (Yannick Gingras) battled for the early lead. After a fast opening quarter (:26), the tempo slowed, with Outrageous Art on top at the half (:54.3). That's when the race favourite got in gear, as Dream Out Loud N moved confidently first-over to challenge for the lead. He was on even terms with the pace-setter at three-quarters (1:21.3). He was able to wear down the leader in the stretch, going on to a two length victory, stopping the timer in 1:50.1. Abelard Hanover (Scott Zeron) closed up the inside for second, while Outrageous Art faded to third.
It was the 19th career win for Dream Out Loud N, moving his career earnings close to the $400,000 mark. The winner ($4.20) is owned by Muscara Racing Stables, and was one of three training wins for Darran Cassar.
