Last week, a 7-1 Jeremy’s Successor won the $35,000 Preferred pace wire-to-wire. This week at 11-1 odds, he got up at the wire to win the feature again.  Go West Luck Cam, won the $32,500 Delaware Special at 7-1 and Transcending took the $26.000 Open pace on Monday, Jan. 31 at Dover Downs. Matt Kakaley and Tim Tetrick drove three winners each. Jon Roberts had a double.

Sean Bier left alertly with Jeremy’s Successor and quickly surrendered the lead to Three Of Spades (Jon Roberts) just past the first quarter. Nova Artist (Allan Davis), as in past races got off last and began to work his way up on the outside to within a length of Three Of Spades at the final turn. In the lane four of the six starters converged on the finish line in a :27.4 final panel with the overlooked  Jeremy’s Successor getting there first, stopping the timer in 1:51.1. Three Of Spades held second with Riggins (David Miller) edging Harlingen Hanover (Roger Plante) for third.  Andrea Hill owns Jeremy’s Successor, a Mach Three-Gently Audrey gelding conditioned by Crissy Crissman.

Upsets continued in the $32,500 Delaware Special Handicap when Matt Kakaley rolled down the passing lane driving 7-1 Go West Lucky Cam to beat a foursome of challengers in 1:52.4 for owner-trainer Josh Green. A 23-1 Eagle All (Eric Goodell) finished second while race favorite Solano, last at the top of the stretch, closed strongly to finish a close-up third.

Earlier Kakaley steered Transcending to a head victory catching Southwind Lynx (Montrell Teague) in the final strides of a 1:52.4 mile in the $26,000 Open Handicap. Its That Time (Brad Hanners) was the show horse. The Weaver Bruscemi, JJK and Burke  Racing stables Grinfromeartoear-Apopka Denise seven-year-old is trained by Ron Burke.

In an $18,500 Male Winners-Over pace, McMurray Hanover made his first start for new owners Only Money Inc. and trainer Dylan Davis a winning one as Tim Tetrick piloted a 1:52.3. Village Blast (Ron Pierce) also in new ownership, was right there second. Devil’s Ivy (Eric Goodell) raced outside for a long while and finished third.

With Cams Art unable to put his six-race win streak on the line via a scratch, in a $17,500 4&5-Year-Old pace, a Matt Kakaley driven horse surfaced again. Lockloadnexplode notched a 1:52.2 triumph for owners John Stevens and trainer Ed Gannon Jr. The Cole Muffler-Tising Tising gelding took the lead from Straighttalkxpress (Tim Tetrick) in front of the grandstand and held it to the finish line. Straighttalkxpress was second with In Treatment (Ben Stafford Jr.) third.

Fancyfreeshark bested Cool (Ron Pierce) for a second straight win for owners Elmer Fannin and trainer George Teague to take the $17,500 4&5-Year-Old pace in 1:52.2. The Four Starzzz Shark-Fancy Art four-year-old won for the second time in four starts in 2011. Exotic Toy (Vic Kirby) was third.

There were two $15,500 Male paces. In the first Art Brewer’s Sharky Osborne, a veteran Cam’s Card Shark-Shady Past gelding, with Ron Pierce raced outside from the backstretch to take the lead in the stretch and then moved away for a 1:52 decision. Midnight Train (David Miller) came on to finish second in front of Polaris N (Eric Goodell)

Owner-trainer Brewer and driver Pierce struck again in the other $15,500 division when Charger N took command early pulling out of third to take the lead on the clubhouse turn and romped to a 1:52.1 conquest. Art Gram (Bret Brittingham) was runner-up. Roman Conqueror N (David Miller) was the show horse.

Tim Tetrick, the youngest driver at 29 to win 6,000 races, was honored by Dover Downs and its fans in a short ceremony. (Dover Downs)
