Favorites prevail in Road to Riches finals
from Harrah's Chester publicity department

The Northeast Extension and Harrah's Boulevard series--part of the Road to Riches Late Closing program held at Harrah's Chester Casino and Racetrack--both culminated on Wednesday (December 22) afternoon, as the metropolitan Philadelphia track brought its fifth season to a close.

Island Terror ($3.60) was a no-nonsense winner in the $50,000 final of the Northeast Extension for pacing fillies and mares.  Settling off the pace on the first turn, Tim Tetrick brushed to the front with the three-year-old Western Terror filly past a :27.3 quarter mile.  Upon clearing the front, Island Terror found no breathers, nudged along by Riley Character (Yannick Gingras) through a strenuous :55.4 middle half.  Upon reaching the top of the stretch, Island Terror found another gear and kicked away at will to a four-length win in 1:53.1. I-Lady (Jim Meittinis) rallied up the open stretch to claim second, while Adriana G (David Miller) closed ground on the grandstand side to take third.

The $60,000 Harrah's Boulevard final for trotters saw a repeat front-running performance from Winning Mister ($2.80), who employed the same tactics which brought him two wins in the preliminary legs. The four-year-old son of Angus Hall opened a clear lead on mare Zitomira (Jacqueline Ingrassia) through splits of :27.3, :55.4, and 1:23.4, having no trouble holding clear from the field after posting such impressive numbers, prevailing by 3-3/4 lengths at the winning post in 1:53.1 under Matt Kakaley.  And Heez Perfect (Tim Tetrick) made a steady bid to claim second, while A Crown for Lindy (Andy Miller) was a late-gaining third.

Live racing resumes at Harrah's Chester Casino and Racetrack on Friday, March 18, 2011 after a twelve-week winter hiatus.  First post for the opening night program will be 6:30 p.m. eastern time.
