One More Laugh impresses in PASS; Presidential Order wins 10 straight
from Harrah's Chester publicity department

Despite mid-afternoon rains in the greater Philadelphia area, a
sizable crowd showed up for Back to the Track Sunday (August 15) at
Harrah's Chester Casino and Racetrack, and they were certainly in for
a treat as they saw a number of sensational performances.

Mathias Meinzinger, Jerry Silva, and Ray Schnittker's One More Laugh
($2.40) entered today's Pennsylvania Sire Stakes event for
three-year-old pacing colts and geldings with wins in the Rooney and
the Meadowlands Pace this season, and he maintained his form over
sloppy going, pulling away to a handy 1:51.1 win in his $130,017
division.  The three-year-old McArdle gelding was eased off the pace
on the first turn by Tim Tetrick before making his move to the lead
well past a :27.3 first quarter set by Shark's Legacy (David Miller).

"I didn't want to put him on the front too early," commented Tetrick.
"He was the horse to beat, I knew Versado was going to move, and I
wanted him behind me and not to my outside."  Tetrick waited for
Versado (Yannick Gingras) to clear Shark's Legacy before brushing with
One More Laugh.  He was uncontested through middle splits of :55.3 and
1:23.3 before he faced a challenge from Nova Artist (George
Napolitano) on the far turn.  In his usual relaxed demeanour, he
turned away Nova Artist and kicked away to a four-length victory in
1:51.1 over the pocket-sitting Versado, with Nova Artist fading to

Tetrick continued:  "I made him sprint off at the top of the lane, and
then I wrapped him up.  He was very good."

One More Laugh pushed his career earnings to $1,393,920 with his
thirteenth lifetime win, and his fourth win of the season.

"One More Laugh isn't a good front-end horse, but he showed his speed
today," Tetrick concluded.  "The mile he went last year in the
Governor's Cup last year was unbelievable.  He doesn't care if he's
parked; he just likes to race horses.  He was very good."

The $130,417 first division saw Shannon DePinto and Earl Smith's We
Will See ($10.80) take advantage of a ground-saving trip to pull clear
of the pace-setting Fred and Ginger (Yannick Gingras) and the
pocket-sitting Panesthetic (George Brennan) in 1:51.4.  Brett Miller's
lone drive on the card was aboard the Sam DePinto-trained son of
Western Hanover.

Presidential Order takes his 10th straight win

Starting his streak as a $15,000 claimer, the Lightning Lane Stable's
Presidential Order ($7.00) has seen a ten-race winning streak take him
all the way to the open ranks, beating a select field of seven in
Sunday's $32,000 Open Handicap Pace.

Starting the season with an eye-catching qualifier for then-trainer
Anthony DeFrancesco, III, the five-year-old Camotion gelding was bound
for success from the beginning of the spring.  Owners Jay Hospodarek
and Eric O'Neill, whom together form the Lightning Lane Stable, found
him worthy of his $15,000 claiming tag.  "From what I saw in the past,
Presidential Order had some ability," remarked Hospodarek.  "He put up
some good races as a $15,000 claimer, and we thought he was a good

In his patented pillar-to-post fashion, Presidential Order was able to
hold off the pocket-sitting Dial or Nodial (David Miller) in 1:50.4
over a sloppy track in rein to regular driver George Napolitano, Jr.
"He's wired the field in basically every race he won during the
streak," continued Hospodarek.  "He was game, he was strong, and just
like you (racecaller James Witherite) said, 'We'll see what this horse
is made of.'  Sitting at the three-quarters, I saw Dial or Nodial on
George's helmet.  Coming around the far turn, George got some
separation, and the horse held on."

Lou Peņa trains Presidential Order, who took his thirteenth win of the season.
