Western Shore springs upset in Chester Open
from Harrah's Chester publicity department

With Real Joke making his second start off a layoff and finishing a narrow second to Annieswesterncard in last week's $32,000 Open Pace at Harrah's Chester, he was thought by most the horse to beat, dismissed at 9-5 favouritism.  However, he couldn't wear down John Cancelliere's Western Shore ($25.60), who prevailed in a pillar-to-post performance in the Sunday (July 25) afternoon Open Handicap Pace.

David Miller sent the seven-year-old Western Hanover entire right to the front, clearing Lisagain (Andy Miller) and last week's winner Annieswesterncard (Ron Pierce) en route to a :26.2 first quarter.  Passing the winning post on the first occasion, Western Shore faced pressure in the form of the first-over Real Joke (George Napolitano), enduring middle fractions of :53.4 and 1:21.2 over sloppy going.  After Real Joke flattened moving into the far turn, Western Shore gained a bit of breathing room on Lisagain, but had to brace for the late challenge of Annieswesterncard at headstretch.  All-out in the final yards, Western Shore prevailed by 1-3/4 lengths over Annieswesterncard in 1:49.4, with Atochia (Yannick Gingras) finishing an off-the-pace third.
