Chester, PA — Sandbetweenmytoes, the 2020 Breeders Crown 3-year-old colt pace champion, made his first racetrack appearance of 2021 during a qualifier at Harrah’s Philadelphia Tuesday (April 6).
The 4-year-old Somebeachsomewhere gelding tucked in third early in a field of six for driver Scott Zeron and sat behind slow fractions of :29.3 and :59.2. Zeron was on the move down the backstretch with a :27.4 burst to clear to the lead before the 1:27.4 three-quarters, and the star pacer tacked on another :27.4 coming home to be well-clear in 1:55.3 for trainer Jim Campbell and Fashion Farms.
Campbell had a training triple during the morning session, as did Julie Miller, in her case teaming with driver Tyler Miller for her barn’s three successes.
Fastest mile came from one of trainer/driver Eddie Dennis’ two winners, the Sweet Lou sophomore colt Hellabalou, who went wire-to-wire in 1:54.2, with back fractions of :55.2-:27.2.
Video of qualifiers for both Harrah’s Philadelphia and The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono will be posted afterwards on the www.phha.org website this year.
