Missile J was never headed in a 1:50 conquest in the Thursday $25,000 headliner at Dover Downs. Sometimes Said was even faster scoring a scintillating 1:49.3 victory to keep his lengthy win streak alive. Corey Callahan drove a quadruple of winners.
Tim Tetrick took no prisoners in the feature race with Missile J, taking the lead in :26.3 at the start on the way to his 18th lifetime victory and second in a row. Scott DiDomenco conditions the American Ideal-Cantor's Daughter gelding for John McGill and Brian Carsey. It was Missile J's third start in 2018, and second win. Cajon Lightning with Russell Foster in the bike for the first time, sat second the mile. Hypothetical (Tony Morgan), winner of last week's 4-year-old open, finished third. The event marked the end of a four-race win streak for Little Ben.
Back in mid-December, Bobby Glassmeyer picked Something Said, who had a two-race win streak, out of a $12,500 claimer. Since then the Well Said-Lady Sometimes gelding has stepped up to win a pair of $25,000 claimers, and two $13,000 Winner-Over paces including this week's edition with Jonathan Roberts piloting his sixth win in a row fashioning a 1:49.3 lifetime mark. It was his15th career win and rises his lifetime earnings to $558,265. Machamillion N (Foster) was second in front of Gerries Sport (Tetrick) third.
In the sub-feature, Callahan completed the program guiding Cash Is King, trained by his dad Nick Callahan, to a second straight win in 1:52.2 in a $16,000 winners pace. L.W.Hood, Bunuccelli and Breakaway racing own the Rocknroll Hanover-Showherthemoney gelding. (Dover Downs)
