Devil’s Ivy won the $35,000 Preferred, Astounding Hanover at 5-1 scored in $32,500 Delaware Special on a top Valentine’s day card  on a clear but windblown Monday, Feb.14 at Dover Downs.

In the feature, Eric Goodell and Devil’s Ivy, overlooked at 12-1, nipped veteran Southwind Lynx (Montrell Teague) at the wire in 1:53.3. Harlingen Hanover (Roger Plante) closed strongly to finish third. The victory was the second of the year for the Arty Foster owned and conditioned Camluck-Idylwood Legend gelding. With the exception of one start Devil’s Ivy has been second or third in his other six 2001 starts. For driver Goodell, it was his first of two wins during the program.

Joe Johnson and trainer Jim King own the Allamerican native-Shucks Hanover gelding. Theredandpanlines (Jon Roberts) was second in front of Eagle All (Eric Goodell).

Cams Art returned to the winner’s circle with a 1:51.3 triumph, the fastest race of the night, to win the $17,500 4&5-Year-Old pace. David Miller guided the Delaware-sired Cams Fortune-My Foolish Art four-year-old gelding now seven for his last eight outings for Morgan and Jeanne McInnis. Hoorayforthegray (Corey Callahan) was a strong second. Cool (Ron Pierce) was the show horse.

In the other $17,500 pace for $&5-year-olds, Roger Plante and St. David Hanover got up in the final strides for owner Jim Behrendt in 1:56.1. The Bettor’s Delight-Don’t Hit On Me gelding edged Elijah Hanover (Tim Tetrick) and Tryst (Matt Kakaley).  

In the first of two $15,500 Male paces, Wambam Sam poured it on after getting the lead after the three-quarters and notched his third win in six starts this year for driver Daryl Bier who co-owns the Real Artist-Roses For Sammie gelding with Glenn DelRusso and Charles Dombeck.
