All Champy scores in Philly trot feature
« Return to News
All Champy and driver Dexter Dunn adjusted to a speed-favoring bias on Thursday (Aug. 1) at Harrah’s Philadelphia, ranging up to the lead off the first turn and going on to a 1:54.1 triumph in the $18,000 featured trot.
All Champy was in top racing shape for trainer William Wyatt and owners Howard and Joshua Kaufman, fending off a long uncovered bid up the backstretch from Majestic Marvel, and then staying strong to withstand pocket rival Shivered by 3-1/2 lengths. The Explosive Matter gelding has amassed eight wins and $127,915 already this year, raising his lifetime total to $200,672.
In a $14,500 co-featured trotting contest, the Credit Winner gelding Ooh Rah advanced first-over and finished powerfully to win by two lengths over Spee Club in 1:54.2. Pat Lachance drove the winner of $174,210 for trainer Kathleen LaMontagne, who shares ownership with Donald LaMontagne.
The red-hot Tim Tetrick added four driving victories on the Thursday card to the five wins he posted Wednesday. (PHHA/Harrah's Philadelphia)
