 Alluneedisfaith N ($4.60) patiently rode along in the pocket before pouncing at head-stretch and dueling down Love Me Some Lou for a 1:50.2 victory in the opening day (Sunday, June 21) feature at Harrah's Philadelphia, a $14,400 top-level conditioned pace.

The 6-year-old Art Major gelding and driver George Napolitano Jr. strode clear from post three and controlled a :27.3 opening quarter before ceding command to Love Me Some Lou (David Miller), who brushed from third off the first turn. Alluneedisfaith N was content to draft behind Love Me Some Lou through middle splits of :56 and 1:23.2 before emerging off the home turn to reengage Love Me Some Lou, who refused to back down. Alluneedisfaith N dug in to prevail by three-quarters of a length, while Love Me Some Lou remained a clear runner-up, 1-3/4 lengths better than the chasing Ana Afreet N (Tony Morgan).

Ross Croghan trains 16-time winner Alluneedisfaith N for the Robert Cooper Stables LLC. The featured win was one of four on the day for Napolitano, whose driving grand slam was matched by Jordan Stratton.
