Veteran Lets Get Serious N turned back six rivals to win the Tuesday feature trot over a sloppy track at Dover Downs.
George Dennis pulled the Jeff Clark-conditioned Lets Get Serious N three wide at the three-quarters to get the lead then pulled away for a 1:57.2 victory in the rain. The win was the fourth of the year for the Joe Muscara-owned 10-year-old son of Sondon-Queen Charlotte who now has won $53,356 this season and $576,875 in his career.
Petty Hanover (Allan Davis) finished second while Photo Maxx (Jon Roberts) closed from far back for third.
In the $13,500 sub-feature trot, Vic Kirby put Allmar Surprise into the lead and the Angus Hall-Benita Victory mare was never tested on the way to a 1:56.4 triumph for owner Chris Giaccio.
The win was the 12th of the campaign for the Vic Kirby trained 6 year old, the only female in the field. Allmar Surprise has now won $98,444 in 2011 and $347,624 lifetime. Ladainian (Ross Wolfenden) closed along the passing lane to pick up second in front of Tudy (Matt Kakaley).
In a $20,000 claiming trot, Bret Brittingham drove Chocolate N Roses, a 4-year-old daughter of CR Commando-Confederate Rose, a trotter he co-owns with breeder-trainer Erika Paradee, to a 1:58.2 score. It was her 12th victory this year raising her earnings to $51,617 and lifts her lifetime bankroll to $200,761.
Berndt Energy (Corey Callahan) was next with Pegasus Point (Davis) the third finisher. (Dover Downs)
