Market Share trotted the fastest mile in history on a five-eighths-mile track to win Sunday's $250,000 Maxie Lee Memorial Invitational in 1 minute, 50.2 seconds at Harrah's Philadelphia.

Market Share moved into second place on the backstretch before challenging Sevruga for the top spot on the final turn. He drew off in the stretch to win by two lengths and break the previous record of 1:50.3 shared by Sevruga and Uncle Peter.

Market Share will not head to Sweden to race in the Elitlopp at the end of the month, and a Swedish horse is one of the reasons the two-time Dan Patch Award winner is staying home. Richard Gutnick, who heads the Market Share ownership group, said the 5-year-old trotter will race in Saturday's $175,000 Arthur J. Cutler Memorial final at Meadowlands Racetrack and then point toward the Maxie Lee Memorial Invitational on May 25 at Harrah's Philadelphia. The Elitlopp also is May 25. The reasons for the decision were the demands of racing and traveling, not to mention the budding of a potential rivalry with 2012 Swedish Horse of the Year Sebastian K. Sebastian K made his North American debut Saturday night, winning his Cutler elimination in a world-record-equaling 1:50.1 mile at the Meadowlands.

The cure was successful. The patient has recovered completely. Contac, the nonprescription cold remedy manufactued by SmithKline Beckman Corp., has regained all of the market share it lost in the United States in the wake of product-tampering incidents earlier this year. SmithKline's $40 million promotional blitz on behalf of its imperiled brand propelled Contac back into a leading postion among cold remedies, according to market-research data compiled by the A.C. Nielsen Co. SmithKline withdrew Contac from the market in March after capsules in Houston and Orlando, Fla., were found to have been contaminated with rat poison.

Market Share, coming off a world-record performance on May 25 at Harrah's Philadelphia, is the 2-1 morning line favorite for Saturday's $200,000 Charlie Hill Memorial Trot at Scioto Downs in Ohio. Owned by Blue Bell's Richard Gutnick, Market Share will faces nine rivals in the Charlie Hill.

The Charlie Hill Memorial field also features Arch Madness, Archangel, Creatine, Undercover Strike, Modern Family, Fusion Man, Major Athens, Rompaway Beau, and DW's NY Yank.

With its market for plastic food-and-beverage containers expected to expand by 11 percent a year through 2005, Constar International Inc. has no shortage of opportunities. Now that it has been spun off from the financially troubled Crown Cork & Seal Co. Inc., it should be easier for Constar to reap its share of that growth. "We need funding so we can grow with the marketplace," said Michael Hoffman, president and chief executive officer of Constar, which went public Nov. 15. The company's shares have not moved far from their $12 offering price, closing down 63 cents yesterday at $11.75 on Nasdaq.

When Paul Steinke, 49, became general manager of the Reading Terminal Market in 2001, a voice in his head cautioned him that he might be joining a dying institution. Hard to imagine why, considering that the market, especially crowded around big food holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, attracts 115,000 visitors a week. One of America's oldest and largest public markets, it is also one of the city's top tourist attractions. Question: What worried you in 2001?

The top dog among the region's supermarkets is growling again. Acme Markets, which had lost market share in recent years as it struggled to upgrade and expand its stores, was the clear winner in this year's survey of the supermarket business conducted by Food Trade News. While Acme boosted its market share, ShopRite and Genuardi's each suffered from a different problem and lost share. Their losses were both to Acme and a growing list of nontraditional rivals that make the Philadelphia area one of the more competitive grocery retailing markets in the country, the survey found.

President Obama used I-495 - the out-of-service six-lane highway that stretches from Delaware County almost to the end of the New Jersey Turnpike and includes a damaged bridge that has jammed traffic this summer on nearby I-95 - as a backdrop for a vague speech about encouraging private investors to finance upgrades of American highways, bridges, ports, and airports. That's because his administration has been unable to get higher highway taxes passed by Congress. The day was also an opportunity for Delaware Gov. Jack Markell to effusively thank Obama, his fellow Democrat, for bailing out East Coast drivers by shifting bridge- repair assets from elsewhere to I-495 so the state could accelerate repairs.

The latest iteration of Franklin Flea - the marketplace for vintage and handmade wares that temporarily enlivened the vacant Center City Strawbridge & Clothier space on Saturdays this spring - pops up Saturday outside McCall School at Seventh and Delancey. The market, whose wheelhouse includes reclaimed-wood frames, ironic tropical-sunset "Philadelphia" T-shirts, vintage furniture, handmade jewelry, and single-origin pour-over coffee, also is transitioning from a weekly affair to a bigger monthly one as a way of driving more excitement.

Market Share heads to Sunday's $250,000 Maxie Lee Memorial Invitational at Harrah's Philadelphia looking to bounce back from an uncharacteristic break in the Cutler Memorial last weekend. In 40 previous career races, Market Share went off stride only once - when he lost a shoe in the 2012 Dexter Cup. In the Cutler, Market Share made a break heading into the first turn as he raced alongside eventual winner Sebastian K. The Cutler featured the much-anticipated encounter between the two-time Dan Patch Award-winning Market Share and the 2012 Swedish Horse of the Year Sebastian K. Both had won their respective Cutler eliminations, Market Share in 1:50.3 and Sebastian K in a world-record-equaling 1:50.1.

Cargoes were up 15.1 percent in 2013 in the Port of Philadelphia, the fourth consecutive year for gains and an indicator the economy is recovering, officials said. More steel, more paper, more cocoa beans, and more sugar accounted for the increase. Total tonnage: 5.1 million. The year was not all rosy. Unconventional cargoes, known as "project cargoes," were down 10.8 percent. Automobile imports from Hyundai and Kia were down 9.8 percent, due in part to labor strife in South Korea and Japanese automakers' bouncing back to regain market share, said Robert Blackburn, the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority's senior deputy executive director.

This evening about 6:30 in East Rutherford, N.J., a soprano from the Metropolitan Opera will join the NFL. Televised to more than 100 million listeners, she will sail "The Star-Spangled Banner" aloft with operatic vibrato, and by Monday morning all of America will be so stirred by her voice that apps will collapse under the strain of the sudden demand for Verdi and Wagner. Scratch that. Authorities have charged a pair of New Jersey Metallica fans with organizing a massive classical-music ticket-scalping scheme after hearing pianist Lang Lang rocking out with the heavy metal band on last Sunday's Grammy broadcast.

In a move that caught shareholders, creditors, analysts, and the airline industry by surprise, the U.S. Justice Department; six states, including Pennsylvania; and the District of Columbia sued Tuesday to block the merger of US Airways and American Airlines. No one saw it coming, two days before a federal bankruptcy judge in New York City was scheduled to approve American's reorganization plan. The news sent airline stocks tumbling. American's creditors, along with shareholders of both airlines and European Union regulators, had given a green light to the $11 billion deal.
