Keystone Suave came four wide turning for home and chopped down the leaders on the way to a 1:54.4 score in the $10,500 pace feature on a beautiful Sunday day afternoon at Dover Downs.
With Eddie Davis Jr. driving the first of two winners, Keystone Suave, owned and trained by Bruce Trader, the Dragon Again-Style gelding won for the first -time since January back-to-back winners. Terror On My Side (Vic Kirby) was runner-up. Captain Art (Tony Morgan) was the show finisher.
Break Dancer set a personal best of 1:51.1 winning the Delaware $20,000 claiming allowance. Jon Roberts took the Bobby Glassmeyer owned and trained Western Ideal-Lives To Dance 6 year old right to the front in a field of nine and was never headed winning for the third time in eight starts this year. Come Together (George Dennis), one of the meet's winningest claiming horses, made his first start in nearly a month and closed along the passing lane to edge We Salute You for second place.
It may have only been a $10,000 claimer, but you could hear the extra clamor as "The housewives of Delaware” cheered on their gray pacer Hoorayforthegray to a 1:53.3 victory, his second of the year. Kirby drove the winner after sitting second behind race leader Premier (Jon Roberts) until reaching the top of the stretch. Then Hoorayforthegray, a Village Jolt-Bound For Glory gelding, swept to the outside and raced side-by-side until the final strides before reaching the finish line first in 1:53.3. The Panefactor (Ross Wolfenden) was third.
With his son Corey being so successful, Nick Callahan doesn't have the opportunity to drive that often. In an $8,000 trot, trainer Callahan sat behind Picard, a SJ's Caviar–Tasha Yar gelding he owns with Bonucelli Racing, and drove the 4 year old to his second straight win, a 1:58.2 triumph beating Field Of Dreams (George Dennis), second, and Bold Strike (Art Stafford Jr.), third, for the win.
