« Return to News
War Cry Hall and Tim Tetrick, a 21-1 longshot, came flying down the lane to score a 1:54.1 victory in the $20,000 Open trot over a sloppy track at Dover Downs on Wednesday, Feb. 3.
Tetrick pulled RBH Ventures’ War Cry Hall out of the middle of the pack in a nine-horse field to follow Panamanian Hanover (Tony Morgan) down the backstretch. Panamanian Hanover took the lead with a cluster of rivals coming on while turning for home. War Cry Hall had the most speed in the stretch to post a 1:54.1 victory, his first of 2015. Panamanian Hanover held on for second with steady Spunky Jack (Roger Plante) taking third. The win for the New York bred Cash Hall-Winners Only gelding is nearing half-million in purses. His 28th lifetime winner gives him earnings of $489,250. A two-race win streak by Bluebird Reverend came to an end.
Another longshot, 11-1 Inner Peace prevailed in the sub-feature $15,500 4&5-Year-Old trot with Pat Berry guiding a 1:56.1 triumph. An altered son of Crazed-Peace Of Mind, Jay Craparotta and P.Berry Racing own the five-year-old, trained by Traci Berry, who won his first start of the year. Royal Becca J (Jack Parker) led early and finished second. Kolbee’s Star (Corey Callahan) saw a two-race win stretch come to an end by finishing third.
Tim Tetrick drove three winners, Corey Callahan, Vic Kirby and trainer Jim King had two wins each.
