Giveitgasandgo polished off a fine weekend for the tandem of Corey Callahan and John Butenschoen

Three-year-old males on both gaits raced in four $30,000 Liberty Bell divisions on Sunday afternoon at Harrah's Philadelphia.

Summer Side would win the opening flight for pacers in 1:52 1/5, going gate-to-wire for driver Tim Tetrick and trainer Ray Schnittker.  Summer Side, a Well Said colt, is also owned by Schnittker and his partner Howard Taylor, and this was his sixth career victory.

Q's Cruise gave Tetrick another win in the next pacing group, getting up from a pocket trip to prevail in 1:51 4/5.  Jim King Jr. owns and trains Q's Cruise, a gelding by Yankee Cruiser, and this was his seventh win of the season and in his life.

Boogie Shuffle (Scott Zeron), who won the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes Championship over the same oval a week ago, would win the third split for pacers by a nose in 1:51.  Mark Harder trains the Well Said gelding, now a six-time career winner, for owner/breeder Fox Hollow Farm.

Eddard Hanover, a gelding by Dragon Again, completed the pacing winners, scoring in 1:51 3/5 for driver Yannick Gingras.  Eddard Hanover, trained by Ron Burke for owners Burke Racing Stable LLC., JJK Stables LLC., Larry Karr, and Weaver Bruscemi LLC., made his sixth appearance in the winner's circle.

Over on the trotting side, it was Giveitgasandgo winning the first grouping in 1:54 3/5 for driver Corey Callahan and trainer John Butenschoen, who swept the Canadian Trotting Classic eliminations at Mohawk last night.  Giveitgasandgo, a ridgling by Yankee Glide, is owned by Harmony Oaks Racing Stable Inc., David J. Miller, Lawrence Means, and VIP Internet Stable LLC., and this was his 12th career win.

President Lindy (Andy Miller) went all the way on the lead in the next trotting tilt, prevailing in 1:55 flat.  A Julie Miller-trained Cantab Hall colt, President Lindy is owned by Andy Miller Stable Inc., Lindy Racing Stable, Gty Stable, and Stable Why Not.  President Lindy now has a record of 4-2-0 from 12 career efforts.

Stealth Hanover (Simon Allard) worked out a two-hole trip in the next trotting section, and he would trot away in the lane to win in 1:54.  Stealth Hanover, an Andover Hall gelding, is co-owned by trainer Francisco Del Cid and his partner Mario Mazza.  Stealth Hanover was winless in eight starts as a 2-year-old, but he has four victories in 2017.

Two Am completed the Liberty Bell winners for the day, coming on in the stretch after a second-over trip to win the final trotting dash in 1:53.  Two Am, a gelded son of Muscle Massive, was driven by Tyler Buter for trainer Todd Buter and owners Lynette Buter, Gene Oldford Farms LLC., William Fuhs, and Carol Fuhs.  This was Two Am's 10th triumph from 15 career tries.
