Sons of The Panderosa accounted for two of six Pennsylvania Sire Stakes winners on Wednesday evening at Harrah's Chester Casino and Racetrack, but it was One More Laugh who got the last laugh of the 2-year-old pacing colts and geldings.
One More Laugh ($3.20), a McArdle gelding out of Fancy Creek Funny, cleared the front on the first turn before rating a sensible middle half, then kicked away at head-stretch to win by 4 1/2 lengths in 1:52, a track record and the season's fastest mile for a 2-year-old pacing gelding on a five-eighths mile track. One More Laugh showed immediate response to driver Tim Tetrick, showing a remarkable :26.3 last quarter. Ray Schnittker trains One More Laugh for Mathias Meinzinger.
Tim Tetrick also won divisions with prohibitive favorites Fancyfreeshark (1:52.4, Four Starzzz Shark) and Pang Shui (1:53, No Pan Intended).
Relaxed Fit (1:52.3, Yannick Gingras) and Indelible Hanover (1:53.4, Andrew McCarthy) comprised the Panderosa double, while Fashion Heart (1:53.2, Dave Palone) was the lone winner by Western Hanover. Favorites won five of six divisions, with Indelible Hanover the longest priced winner at $7. (Harrah's Chester)
