« Return to News
New Zealand-bred Tiger Thompson N (Dexter Dunn) defeated Mother Nature and eight other foes in Sunday's Feature at Harrah's Philadelphia. It was a Great Northeast Open Series event for male pacers, going for a purse of $30,000.
The Josh Parker trainee was able to sit patiently in the pocket behind the speed of millionaire Filibuster Hanover (Yannick Gingras), who set fractions of :26.3, :55.3, and 1:23.2. Donttellmeagain (Tim Tetrick), who started from post 8, challenged the leader at the half after finding an early seat. The battle set up for the fresh legs of Tiger Thompson N, who closed up the passing to win by three-quarters of a length in 1:50.3. He has now won four of his last five races. Filibuster Hanover held second, while Donttellmeagain finished third.
Tiger Thompson N ($16.20) is owned by the group of Nanticoke Racing, Stephen Messick, Prestige Stables, and Trainer Josh Parker. (Harrah's Philadelphia)
