It took Classic Puzzle until the final stride to win the $14,500 trot feature at Dover Downs on Saturday, Dec. 18.
Classic Puzzle sat behind Timbogo (Brad Hanners) from the start, then rolled along the passing lane to challenge the leader and was finally able to put his nose in front at the wire to score a 1:57.3 victory. Corey Callahan steered the Classic Photo-Chinese Puzzle Box colt to his third win in his last four outings and fifth victory this season. Dennis Olsen and Peter Wilhemsen own the winner trained by John Cabot.
Timbogo sustained his setback ending a four-race win streak. Mandabra (Vic Kirby) ventured four-wide round the final turn and closed well to finish third.
Three drivers - George Dennis, Vic Kirby and Corey Callahan - drove three-winners each while Ross Wolfenden had two wins on the Saturday Dover card. (Dover)
