There were none better than None Bettor A ($2.20), who posted a gritty 1:49.4 victory — his ninth straight — in Sunday afternoon’s $30,000 Great Northeast Open Series pacing event at Harrah's Philadelphia.

The 6-year-old Bettor's Delight gelding and driver Joe Bongiorno had no trouble achieving the lead in the field of five, clearing inside rival The Wall (George Napolitano Jr.) in a comfortable :27 first quarter before rating a :55.2 half. Up the backstretch, Keep On Rocking A (Pat Berry) mounted a first-over challenge to force None Bettor A to three-quarters in 1:22.3, but the streaking gelding maintained a length lead before shrugging off that foe on the final turn.

After dismissing Keep On Rocking A, None Bettor A sprinted off at the eighth pole to leave The Wall in his wake, but Our Max Phactor N (Andy McCarthy) spun three-wide off stalled cover and closed boldly. Undeterred, None Bettor A held sway by a length in 1:49.4 to record his 25th career win. Our Max Phactor N was second, while Mister Ohanzee A (Tim Tetrick) improved belatedly from astern to take third.

In the sub-feature $18,000 top-level conditioned pace, Tiger Thompson N ($3.00) got back in the win column with a 1:49.4 score over Slick Tony. Dexter Dunn brushed the  Josh Parker trainee out from third to clear Sunfire Blue Chip with a lap to go, and the pair parried Slick Tony's rally from third-over by a length. (Harrah’s Philadelphia)
