Fresh from a front-pacing victory last week, San Fran Lady N stepped up to the $20,000 Mares Open and came from behind to score a 1:53.3 win on a chilly Monday at Dover Downs.
Reined by Tony Morgan, this time San Fran Lady closed with a rush for a nose victory for owner-trainer Peter Tritton. Now a 20-race winner in her career, first in New Zealand and twice since coming to the U.S., the 8 year old is by American breds, Live Or Die and Emcil, a Miles McCool mare. Destined shortly for the Meadowlands sales ring, Yagonnakissmeornot, driven by Montrell Teague, put in a game effort, to finish second. Jeremes Sweetheart and Ron Pierce took show money.
McArma, owned, trained and driven by Ross Wolfenden, made it three wins in a row taking the $13,000 mares pace in 1:55. Bonita Rocks (Allan Davis) was second in front of fast-finishing Non Pareil (Teague). (Dover Downs)
