Jeremes Sweetheart won the $20,000 Mares Open Pace for the second straight week notching a 1:52.1 victory in the feature race at Dover Downs on Monday.
Last week, Jeremes Sweetheart scored a nose victory, but this time the Jereme's Jet-Fox Valley Evanna 5 year old was more impressive. Ron Pierce left fast from the outside and quickly took the lead. From there on she faced only a determined bid from Alexachase (Bret Brittingham) from the half until reaching the stretch, before moving away to a convincing triumph.
Tim Tetrick hustled On The Cusp along the passing lane to finish second ending her two-race win streak. Paradise Lost and Ross Wolfenden came on to finish third.
Ken Wood, Bill Dittmar and Steve Iaquinta own the winning Eric Ell-conditioned distaff who now has won $29,120 in 2014 and $293,512 lifetime.
The sub-feature $14,500 mares winners-over pace ended with five females across at the finish line in a 1:54.3 decision. Richard Ashley and Mike Cain's Beechwood Diana, one of Wolfenden's four winners, closed for the win. Winbak Speedi (Allan Davis) was runner-up with Caviart Cara (Corey Callahan) third in front of All Terror (Pierce).
Wolfenden drove McArma, a McArdle-My True Art 4 year old he owns, trains and drives, to victory in a $13,000 mares pace. It was her fifth win of the meet. Non Pareil (Montrell Teague) and Get Real Rusty (Jonathan Roberts) were second and third, respectively.
Wolfenden's "grand slam" moved him into second-place with 78 wins in the track standings, two more than Davis's 76. Callahan, who leads all winning drivers in 2014, tops the Dover Downs meet with 154 wins. (Dover Downs)
