Thursday\'s $40,000 Open Handicap Trot at Harrah\'s Chester saw 7-5 favorite Railee Possible (Daniel Dube) break stride on the first turn, eliminating any chance of his fifth consecutive win, with Talk About Me emerging victorious.
Meadowlands shipper Westland Sun N (Yannick Gingras) left sharply for the lead, and went uncontested through early splits of :27.1 and :57 before Lolique (Tony Morgan) made an extended first-over bid. Reaching three-quarters in 1:24.3, Lolique could no longer sustain his bid and Westland Sun N was slowing considerably, prompting Eric Goodell to angle Talk About Me from the pocket spot.
The 6-year-old Keystone Smothers-Moorelands Brenda gelding scored by 1 1/4 lengths under moderate urging in 1:54.4. Beach Nut Brand (George Napolitano Jr.) closed well from off the pace to finish in a dead heat for second with the fading Westland Sun N.
