Tidewaterdragonfly now a millionaire

A change of tactics proved most beneficial for Tidewaterdragonfly ($9.20), who held off all comers in near pillar-to-post fashion, recording a 1:50.3 victory in Wednesday evening\'s $35,000 Fillies and Mares Open Pace at Harrah\'s Chester Casino and Racetrack. The $17,500 winner\'s share pushed Tidewaterdragonfly just over the $1-million mark in career earnings.

Off the board in her first two starts at Chester this year, driver Tim Tetrick moved the 5-year-old Dragon Again mare to the front, facing pressure from Btwnyurheartnmine (Eric Goodell) up the backstretch. After turning Btwnyurheartnmine away after battling past three-quarters in 1:22.1, Tidewaterdragonfly responded well to the pocket-pulling Ideal Newton (Yannick Gingras), kicking away by three lengths in deep stretch. Cuz She Can (Daniel Dube) swept up three wide, closing for third.
