Kennywood, overlooked at 25-1, stormed three wide around the final turn to win the $24,000 Open Handicap Trot in 1:55.1 at Dover Downs on Wednesday, with Musclesextrodinair taking the $21,000 Junior Open Trot and Tim Tetrick driving four winners.

As usual, Jake Nordic and driver Tim Curtin took the early lead and led until after turning down the lane. After shaking off a challenge from Breeze Hill Will and Tetrick, Mark Gingrich stormed up on the outside with Sullivan Blue Chip to engage in a head-to-head duel on the backstretch. Roger Plante then rolled up three wide into the final turn, and after straightening out in the stretch, the 7-year-old gelding Kennywood hustled on past to score his eighth win of the season.

Sullivan Blue Chip held on for second with Self Professed and Brad Hanners overtaking Jake\'s Nordic for third. Kennywood is owned by Kenny Wood and Henry King, and now has won three of his last five starts.

In the co-feature $20,000 Junior Open Trot, Tetrick drove Three Point Acres\' Musclesextrodinair to victory. It was his second win in his last three starts. Go Nano Go, with Eddie Davis Jr., finished second, and Celtic Hall, driven by Curtin, finished third.

George Hobbs\' Love You Most dropped down to the $15,500 winners-over trot ranks to score a 1:57 win with Eddie Dennis in the bike.

Tony Morgan steered Take The Lead to a 1:56.3 triumph in one of two $10,200 Delaware paces, and in the other division, Im A Foolman Too, co-owned by Carol Jamieson and driver Jack Parker, Jr., notched a 1:55.4 victory. (Dover Downs)
