Chloes Silver Star, one of four winning drives by Ron Pierce, made it two in a row by winning the $32,000 Mares Jr. Open Handicap Pace on Tuesday at Dover Downs.

Pierce taxied Chloes Silver Star alongside race leader Mozzi Hanover and Jim Morand on the backstretch and the pair dueled to the three-quarters and around the final turn. The 5-year-old Intrepid Seelster-Silver Chloe mare appeared to be retreating as the nine-horse field entered the homestretch, but Pierce got her going again and won a three-horse photo by a head in 1:52.4.

It was a repeat performance for the Gary Evans and Foulk Stable-owned distaff and her fourth win of the year to go with two seconds and three thirds in 12 races. She has won $90,160 in 2009. Mozzi Hanover edged Eric Goodell-driven Lady Mach for second.

Pierce also returned to win the $22,000 distaff sub-feature race, piloting Yada Yada Yada A to her first win since early February in 1:53.4. The Hall of Fame driver moved the Armbro Operative-Fiddybits 9 year old out of sixth and followed first-over Alice\'s Restaurant until making a three-wide move at the three-quarters to take the lead and then cruised home a winner. Dill And Grace A, driven by Jon Roberts, led from the start and finished second. Ireneonthemove (Morgan) was the show finisher. (Dover Downs)
