A Dover win with spunk
« Return to News
Spunky Vic came from behind for a 1:55.3 victory in the $13,000 Delaware trot feature on Thursday at Dover Downs while Mike Cole and Corey Callahan had a big night driving four winners each.
Tony Morgan left with Spunky Vic to get the lead before the quarter. Sandys Attitude came on to take over and lead until deep stretch when Spunky Vic closed along the passing lane to just get up by a neck at the wire. The win was one of two for Morgan and the fourth of the year for the 3-year-old Valley Victor gelding owned and trained by Arty Foster. Sandys Attitude was second in front of the closing Ragin Prospect (Sam Belote).
Cole recorded his third of a four-win night steering Bill Emmons\' 41-1 shot Kilkerran Scot to a 1:53.2 victory in a $25,000 claiming pace. Rockem N (Ross Wolfenden) closed in back of the winner to finish second. Early pacesetter and favorite Vivere (Callahan) was pushed into fast fractions but held on for third.
Cole won earlier driving veteran Jason William N, owned by Chris Choros and Crissman Inc., from off the pace to overtake Art\'s Son (George Dennis) in deep stretch to score a 1:53.3 triumph in a $25,000 claimer. BJ\'s Breeze (Tim Curtin) took third money. (Dover Downs)
