After tasting defeat in his first two races of 2020, Our Max Phactor N ($8.40) put it all together in Sunday's featured event at Harrah's Philadelphia, a $14,400 top-level conditioned pace.

While the 8-year-old Art Major gelding employed similar tactics as he did in a narrow defeat to Prairie Panther at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono on June 20, the outcome proved far more favorable.
 
George Napolitano Jr. used Our Max Phactor N early from post five to secure the pocket behind 12-1 pacesetter Imarocnrollegend N (Joe Bongiorno), and the pair were content to draft behind stout early splits of :26.3 and :54.4 before angling out of the pocket on the backstretch. Our Max Phactor N worked to the lead with five-sixteenths to go, pressed on to a widening advantage past three-quarters in 1:21.3, and braced for a late push from odds-on favorite Dealt A Winner (David Miller) off the final turn.

Straightening for home, Our Max Phactor N had built up a two-length lead, but Dealt A Winner lifted boldly off cover and closed stoutly in the final sixteenth. Our Max Phactor N responded to the challenge, prevailing over Dealt A Winner by a diminishing half length in 1:50.1. Love Me Some Lou (George Brennan) finished third, 2-1/4 lengths farther back, after levelling off at head-stretch.

Trainer Andrew Harris co-owns 26-time winner Our Max Phactor N with Michael Goldberg Racing LLC, Bruce Areman and the Prem Dan Stable.

Trainer Ron Burke scored a hat trick on the 14-race card, sending Seeing Eye Single ($4.80, 1:52.2), Mayfield Duke ($9, 1:52.4) and Larry Karr ($3, 1:50.3) to victory. Yannick Gingras drove all three.

David Miller earned top honors among drivers with four winners on the program. (Harrah's Philadelphia)
