Country Romance and Podium posted victories in $20,000 first leg Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund 3-year-old filly pace preliminaries on Tuesday at Dover Downs.
Allan Davis steered William Moffett's Country Romance to the lead heading to the half and then romped home for a 1:58.2 victory in one of the two prelims. It was the fourth career win for the Giant Hit-Give A Hoot filly who now has won $41,026. Starlit Eyes, with Ross Wolfenden, finished second with Tricia's Banner and Nick Callahan the third-place finisher.
Dylan Davis, who is one of the meet's top five trainers, made only his third appearance as a driver this year and it paid off for a 1:59.2 success behind Podium. Racing second when favorite Luscious Leigh broke stride after the half, Podium streaked to the front and had just enough to hold off Embrace Peace and Roger Plante by a nose at the wire for her maiden win. Circle M Dawn was third with Eddie Davis
Jr. in the bike. (Dover Downs)
