Some very nice 2 year olds were on display during a morning qualifying session at Harrah's Philadelphia on Tuesday. The barns of Noel Daley and Jim Campbell were especially hot, sending out four and three winning freshmen, respectively.
Among the highlights was the Somebeachsomewhere colt Union Station, named for bluegrass musician Alison Krauss' band, making sweet music while stopping the timer in 1:54.4, tying him with Captain Malicious as the fastest 2 year old to date on a five-eighths-mile track (all season's records as of Monday night). David Miller was in the sulky for trainer Joe Holloway.
The standard for 2-year-old pacing fillies was lowered to 1:56.3 by the Captaintreacherous miss Sea Princess, who came home in :56.1 to win for driver George Dennis and trainer Joe Columbo.
Staying on the pacing side, the Somebeachsomewhere colt V O Joe did not set a season's mark with a 1:58.4 triumph, but coming his own last back fractions in :55.3-:26.4 after an uncovered journey marks him as one to watch for driver Brett Miller and trainer Sam DePinto.
On the trotting side, the Possess The Will colt Windchill Fashion blew home in 2:00.2, making him the fastest colt in his division so far and tying filly Measuredperfection for fastest mile over a five-eighths-mile track for a 2 year old. Tim Tetrick handled sulky duties for trainer Campbell. (Harrah's Philadelphia/PHHA)
