>On the Tab ($3), Hard Livin ($3), Chimon ($3.40) and Federalreservenote ($2.60) gave trainer Jimmy Takter and driver Daniel Dube a Pennsylvania Sire Stakes grand slam on Monday evening at Harrah's Chester Casino and Racetrack, as five divisions of 2-year-old trotting colts and geldings faced the starting gate.


Hard Livin (SJ's Caviar-Affinity) was the fastest of the Takter-Dube quartet, turning in a 1:58.2 performance from first-over and holding off Mr. McRail (Ron Pierce) and Freedom Ridge (David Miller) despite bearing out through the stretch.


Christina Takter and John Fielding own all four trotters, with Falkbolagen Ab co-owning On the Tab and Hard Livin, and Louie Camara also in partnership on On the Tab. Goran Anderberg co-owns Chimon and Federalreservenote.


Despite the Takter-Dube tour de force, Upandover Hanover ($5.40) was fastest of the 2-year-old trotters, inheriting the lead at the head of the stretch and finishing handily in 1:57.4 under Brett Miller for trainer Scott Cox. Towering Oaks Farm owns Upandover Hanover (Andover Hall-Up Front Lisa).
