Downbytheseaside and Chris Page moved from third to first at the quarter and never looked back en route to a 1:48.3 victory in Thursday's $308,060 Hap Hansen Progress Pace at Dover Downs.
 
In the final start of his illustrious career, Downbytheseaside easily defeated his stablemate in the Brian Brown Stable, Fear The Dragon, who was driven by David Miller. Mac's Jackpot rallied for a non-factor third.
 
Downbytheseaside, a 3-year-old son of Somebeachsomehere, is owned by Joe Sbrocco, Richard Lombardo, Country Club Acres and Diamond Creek Racing.
 
Russell Foster was star of the four $100,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF). The 28-year-old Foster drove two of the winners in his personal biggest day in the sport. In the DSBF freshman filly trot, Foster guided Serendipity Sable's homebred Star Sapphire conditioned by Tui Stone to her third straight triumph with a near wire-to-wire 1:59 performance. From the first crop of Anders Bluestone-Victory Starburst, she won the $100,000 Harrington final and now has a seasonal total of $125,650. Race favorite Vandalous (Corey Callahan) finished second.

Foster returned to the winner's circle in the $100,000 Colt Pace with Slick Tony, nipping race favorite Evolution Tour (Tim Tetrick) by a nose in 1:51. George Leager, bred, owns and trains the No Spin Zone-Queen Kathy colt who has made the winner's circle nine times in 11 starts with two second earning $151.797.

In another photo finish verdict, Sky Marshall got up in the last stride for trainer Carlo Poliseno, who owns the CR Commando-Penny Lane colt with Jane Dunavant, to win the $100,000 Colt trot. Super Fly (Art Stafford Jr.) had built up a big lead turning for home, but could not hold off Sky Marshall, who won in 1:56.4, his first victory. He now has earned $76,000 in the DSBF stakes. Brother Kenny (Tetrick) was the third finisher.

In yet another race decided by the photo-finish camera, Go Sandy Go overtook front-pacing Pedal Power (Tetrick) in the last stride for a 1:53.4 victory in the $100,000 Filly Pace Final. Jason Green piloted the Roddy's Bags Again-Bit Of Trick daughter for owner-breeders trainer Josh Green and Brent Outten. She has now banked $65,000 this campaign.
