Giddy Up Lucky notched his 11th consecutive win in the $35,000 Preferred, Solano captures the $26,000 Open and Southwind Lynx takes the $23,000 Jr. Open, the Dover Downs tri-features on another cold and windy Monday, Dec. 6.
All six of Giddy Up Lucky’s rivals stacked up behind the leader, as this week’s elite field turned for home.

The five-year-old Camluck-Sweet Art gelding and driver Eric Goodell had just enough at the wire in 1:52.1 to hold off a cavalcade of foes for his 14th win of the year to win by a head. Bettor Sweet came storming in the stretch with David Miller to fish second in front of Jeremy’s Successor and Sean Bier with the rest of the field immediately behind. Baron Racing Stable and one-time trainer David Rovine own Giddy Up Lucky in hid closest finish in six races. It was the second winner for trainer Josh Green and Baron Racing Stable and the first of two wins for driver Eric Goodell.

Solano, winner of last week’s Delaware Special, made it two wins in a row as Ron Pierce drove the No Pan Intended-Bloodstock Nilator five-year-old to a 1:53.1 victory in the $26,000 Open outlasting Bad Rusty and Corey Callahan in a stretch-long head-to-head battle to the wire. Transcending finished third for Matt Kakaley. The victory was the 13th of the year for Solano, a winner of $212,685 this season for owners trainer Johnny Waite and Kathleen Wyatt.

Southwind Lynx returned to the races after a short respite to pick up a $22,000 Jr. Open triumph. Montrell Teague drove the $1.63-career winner to a 1:52.4 triumph. Funny Deacon, driven by Corey Callahan, was second with Chilly NZ with Daryl Bier third. N$R Racing and George Teague Inc. owned Southwind Lynx, a five-year-old by Real Artist-Luxury Class, a winner of his ninth race this year good for $196,328 in 2010

Art Brewer notched his second training win on the card when Cadence N with Corey Callahan paced a 1:52.4 mile to beat Polaris N (Ron Pierce) and Kelly’s Spur (Tim Curtin) in an $18,000 Male pace.

Jettin Justin had just enough to hold off Midnight Train (Ron Pierce) for a 1:54.1 decision in a $17,500 3,4&5-Year-Old pace. Matt Kakaley drove the win for Weaver Bruscemi, Mike Dowdell and Burke Racing Stable. Electrofire (Corey Callahan) was the show finisher.

Eric Goodelll later steered 9-1 Diggers Rest N to a 1:54 win for WJ McDougall Racing in a $15,500 Male pace. The Armbro Operative-Millburn Carolyn gelding out-closed Roman Conqueror N (Tom Tetrick) second Life Up Front (Art Stafford Jr.) was third.

Norma Messick’s Cold Cape Cod, 25-1 from the rail, found room between horses deep in the stretch to score a 1:57.4 to break a year-long slump to win for the first time this year. It was Callahan’s second win of the night. (Dover Downs)
