Coming off back-to-back wins at the Meadowlands, Southwestern Dream took the open stretch to a third straight victory, capturing the $30,000 Nero for 4-year-olds on Friday (June 5) evening at Harrah\'s Chester Casino and Racetrack.

The 4-year-old Cambest gelding cleared the lead on the first turn before yielding to One False Move (George Napolitano, Jr.) with a circuit to go, tracking his every step throughout.  With One False Move tiring under pressure from Mystery Chase (Donnie Russell) and McCedes (Corey Callahan) making a three-wide bid at head-stretch, Dave Palone moved Southwestern Dream to the open stretch, closing beautifully with plenty of pace and winning by three-parts of a length over McCedes in 1:52.4 over sloppy going.  One False Move was an all-out third.
