Back-to-back scores for Jack’s Shadow N

Chester, PA — After staving off pressure to prevail on the lead last week, Jack’s Shadow N ($5.20) lifted off cover to just nab Itsrockandroll A in Sunday’s (Oct. 18) featured event at Harrah’s Philadelphia, a $14,400 top-level conditioned pace.

Tim Tetrick was patient early with the 6-year-old Shadow Play gelding, settling just worse than midfield while Da Delightful (Daniel DubĂ©) worked clear of Rock The Town (Joe Bongiorno) to control early splits of :27.1 and :55.3. Jack’s Shadow N became more involved up the backstretch and rode the cover of Itsrockandroll A (Corey Callahan) into contention as the pace intensified to three-quarters in 1:23.1.

As Itsrockandroll A pressed into Da Delightful off the home turn, Tetrick flipped Jack’s Shadow N three-wide in what proved to be the winning move. Itsrockandroll A collared Da Delightful with a sixteenth to go, but Jack’s Shadow N accelerated down the center of the track to win by a neck in 1:50.3. Itsrockandroll A proved a game second; Da Delightful held off a mild inside bid from Rock The Town to save third.

Scott DiDomenico trains Jack’s Shadow N for Triple D Stables, Oompa’s Farm and Robert Mondillo. The 17-time winner has now won four of his last five races.

Jenn Bongiorno notched a training hat trick, led by a sparkling 1:50.1 mile from Nicholas Beach ($2.60). Joe Bongiorno drove the 4-year-old Somebeachsomewhere gelding to his seventh win in eight starts this season.

Wise Image ($5.00, 1:51) and Alex Tye ($5.00, 1:50.4) were Jenn Bongiorno’s other victorious trainees on the 14-race card, and both were also driven by Joe.

Racing returns to Harrah’s Philadelphia on Wednesday (Oct. 21), with a 14-race card scheduled and a $1,235.86 carryover in the Jackpot Hi-5. Post time is 12:25 p.m. (EDT).
