A "sloppy" track couldn’t deny Fashion Showdown from uncorking a powerful 1:51.1 victory, the fourth on the card for meet-leading driver Corey Callahan in the $20,000 Mares Open/Handicap pace, Tuesday at Dover Downs.
During a daylong drizzle, Fashion Showdown left from the rail and traded places before retaking the lead. From there on Fashion Showdown was tough to catch. At the 1:23.3 three quarters, Callahan pulled away from Hearts N Flowers (Allan Davis), challenging on outside with Matinee Dragon (Jonathan Roberts) sitting on his back, to sprint off quickly opening up lengths on the way to victory, her first in more than a month and second of the meet.
Chris McInnis trains the Village Jolt-Catch The Show 6-year-old for owner Chris White. It was her 17th career win hiking her bankroll to $188,005. Scandalicious (Tony Morgan), last week’s winner, came from dead last to fly up for second. Duneside Chella (George Dennis) stepped up in class to finish third. (Dover Downs)
