Harrah's Chester week in review

Rock N Soul ($2.80) and Real Celebration ($3.00) did not disappoint their backers this week, taking their respective featured events at Harrah's Chester Casino and Racetrack, while double millionaire Arch Madness ($7.40) scored a minor upset over odds-on favorite Winning Mister in the Open Handicap Trot.

Rock N Soul prevailed in Thursday (March 24) afternoon's $35,000 Mares Open Handicap Pace, taking immediate control of the pace and never looking back.  The four-year-old Rocknroll Hanover mare sprinted to the lead from her assigned outside post in a select field of five, clearing Perfect M Forever (Eric Goodell) through a :27.3 opening quarter.  She then rated a :58.3 middle half while uncontested, parrying a late challenge from Perfect M Forever to prevail by half a length in 1:54.0 under Yannick Gingras.  Ron Burke handles the training duties for the Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, Frank Baldachino, and Howard Taylor.

Friday's (March 25) $35,000 Open Handicap Trot saw 3-10 favorite Winning Mister (Matt Kakaley) bring a four-race winning streak to the table, coming off a 1:52.3 track record effort in opening night's Winners Over Trot.  As usual, Winning Mister made an early push to the front, sprinting away on the far turn after reaching three-quarters in 1:25.1.  Arch Madness, some 5-1/2 lengths off the lead with a quarter mile to go under trainer-driver Trond Smedshammer, circled wide and made a powerful stretch bid, taking over in the last 70 yards and prevailing by three-quarters of a length in 1:53.4 in his 2011 debut.  Marc Goldberg and Willow Pond, LLC own Arch Madness.

Sunday (March 27) afternoon's feature was a $30,000 Winners Over Pace, in which Joseph Davino and Jeffrey Bamond's Real Celebration was sent off the 1-2 favorite after finishing a strong second to Western Shore in last week's Open Pace.  The six-year-old Real Artist gelding tracked a reasonable pace set by Presidential Order (Brian Sears) before moving first-over on the backstretch.  After forcing a :27.1 third quarter, Real Celebration collared Presidential Order on the far turn and drew clear by four lengths in 1:50.2.  Tim Tetrick handled the driving duties for trainer Don Campbell.

Tim Tetrick led all drivers on the week with 17 wins.  David Miller tallied 7 victories, with Yannick Gingras taking 5 races on the week.
