Mystra stepped up to the $23,000 Mares Open pace for her third consecutive victory at Dover Downs on Monday.
Tim Tetrick sat second with Mystra as Jeremes Sweetheart driven by Ron Pierce cut out the fractions until heading for the final turn. Tetrick then sent Mystra around the leader and led the way to a 1:53 triumph in the week's top distaff event and keeps the Art Major-Pastrami Hanover 6 year old unbeaten in 2013. Bret Brittingham moved Alexachase earlier than usual to get into the outside flow but did not have her usually clocking kick and had to settle for second-place. Jeremes Sweetheart held on for third. It was the second winner of the day for trainer Trish Foulk and Foulk Stables. The win was the third for driver Tetrick.
Corey Callahan closed sharply with Angelwithnattitude to win the $16,000 mares winners-over pace in 1:52. An Art Major daughter of Queen Teen, the 5 year old is trained by Dylan Davis for owners, Korn, Thomases, Wernick and Guamiere. Fleeting Flirt N (Ron Pierce) led from the start until nearing the finish line. Alice's Restaurant (Jon Roberts) went a big trip to finish third. The victory was the second of the new year in five starts for Angelwithnattitude. (Dover Downs)
