CHESTER PA – The three-year-old trotters Hardrockcafe and Met Your Request were the winners in the $12,600 featured races at Harrah’s Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon.
Hardrockcafe was up first, and the gelded son of Rock Of Cashel (who is still racing at Philly) made every pole a winning one with a 3¾ length victory in which he reduced his mark to 1:55.4. Todd McCarthy drove Hardrockcafe for trainer Mark Harder, who also owns the sophomore with Joseph Jannuzzelli and Jeffrey Ruch.
Waloner led most of the way in the other division, but the Met’s Hall gelding Met Your Request, who had sat third-in much of the mile, had enough kick late to overhaul the leader by a head in 1:56.3. Tyler Miller was in the sulky for trainer/mother Julie Miller and the ownership of father’s Andy Miller Stable Inc., partner with Mr. Caroll Huffman.
Tim Tetrick added to his meet-leading driving win lead by piloting four horses back to Victory Lane.
Harrah’s current schedule has racing on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons at 12:25 p.m., and Sunday afternoons at 12:40 p.m. Program pages for all races at Harrah’s Philadelphia are or will be available at https://www.phha.org/harrahspps.html.
