Chester, PA --- Driver Corey Callahan recorded five victories on the Thursday afternoon (July 5) card at Harrah’s Philadelphia, including a $30.80 upset with Wisenheimer in one of two $14,500 divisions of the day’s featured trotting event.

Wisenheimer raced behind the cover of Valley Of Sin as the latter attacked pacesetting favorite Crazy About Pat. When the leader jumped off stride midway around the final turn, Valley Of Sin was able to go the lead and the inside, leaving Wisenheimer uncovered. In the end, the Revenue S gelding battled on to the finish to take a 1:54.3 decision. P L Icabod, who had to dodge the breaking horse along the inside, closed to be a head shy on the money, with Valley Of Sin another head off in finishing third.

Wisenheimer is trained by Jenny Melander; she also races the winner of $356,236 under lease.

Amid Callahan’s quintet were the two highest-priced winners of the day, with Wisenheimer topped two races later by Beatrice ($47.40), also a trotter coming from off the pace.

In the other featured trotting event, Izoh was all “go” from the start, cutting the pace then withstanding the first-over grinding move of favored Wheelsandthelegman to win by a length while lowering his mark to 1:54.1. The winning Crazed gelding is trained by Frank Ingrassia and was driven by his wife Jackie, who co-owns with the Arden Homestead Stable, Donna Franchetti and Thomas Doran.

Driver Andrew McCarthy cut the distance to his milestone 2,000th career win to three during the Thursday Philly action, reporting home first three times to bring his lifetime total to 1,997.
