After a remarkable debut victory which raised the attention of many, two-year-old pacing colt Sir Richard Z Tam ($2.40) proved he was no fluke during his $70,795 Pennsylvania Sire Stakes division on Thursday (July 12) afternoon's 14-race program at Harrah's Philadelphia.

The son of Somebeachsomewhere controlled the pace for much of the race, stalked by pocket foe Johns Polyview (John Campbell) through a sensible :56.2 half-mile and a solid 1:24.3 three-quarter split.  At the top of the stretch, Johns Polyview angled wide to give chase, and despite both rivals showing their greenness (Sir Richard bore in, Johns Polyview bore out), Sir Richard Z Tam dug in to stave off Johns Polyview in a jaw-dropping 1:51.4 effort--in just his second career start.  Clint Westwood (David Miller) was third after saving ground throughout.

Trainer-driver Patrick Lachance co-owns Sir Richard Z Tam with the Z Tam Stables and Ira Rosenblum.

Sons of Dragon Again accounted for two of the five divisions, with Double the Dragon ($7.00, Ron Pierce, 1:52.0) and Delaware Hanover ($89.20, Corey Callahan, 1:53.1) both visiting the winner's enclosure.  Lonewolf Currier ($3.60, Tim Tetrick, 1:52.3), son of The Panderosa, took the fourth split, while Yankee Cruiser colt Smokealittlesmoke ($20.80, George Napolitano, 1:55.2) emerged from a confusion-laden last division to prevail, as dueling favorites Lex Vegas and Red Rock both broke on the far turn.
