Tetrick wins seven; St Elmo Hero goes 16-for-16 in Blue Route
from Harrah's Chester publicity department

It was nothing short of a banner day for Tim Tetrick, taking the overnight feature $32,000 Open Handicap Pace with Hypnotic Blue Chip in 1:49.3. He also laid claim to a second overnight event and three divisions of the I-95 Late Closing Series for older pacers. Most impressively, however, was one of his two wins in the Blue Route Late Closing Series for three- and four-year-old pacers, driving St Elmo Hero ($3.40) to his sixteenth career victory in as many starts.

Racing mainly in the Midwest until now, John Barnard's St Elmo Hero sat a pocket trip behind Meirs Hanover (Yannick Gingras) in their $20,000 split of the Blue Route. Past a three-quarter split of 1:23.1, Tetrick moved the four-year-old Western Hero gelding off the back of Meirs Hanover, kicking away at will by four lengths to score a 1:50.3 victory. Unraced at two and three, St Elmo Hero showed a wicked turn of foot in the last quarter, coming home in :27.0 to push his career record to 16-for-16.

Tetrick also took a Blue Route split with Real Hero ($3.40, 1:51.2), while Diablo Seelster ($3.00, George Napolitano, 1:51.2), No Monkeys Allowed ($2.40, Yannick Gingras, 1:51.3), and Artlight Hanover ($11.40, George Napolitano, 1:52.2) also were victorious.

Tetrick also visited the winner's circle in three of the five $25,000 I-95 splits, aboard Riggins ($2.10, 1:51.2), Aliveandwell N ($5.00, 1:51.4), and Schoolkids ($4.60, 1:51.0), with Yannick Gingras taking the other two divisions with Biletnikoff ($31.60, 1:50.4) and Lucky Bettor ($4.40, 1:51.0).
