Race favorite Moonlight Cocktail and longshot Bro Hanover came through with victories in the Tuesday (Feb. 6) Dover Downs co-feature races while Tony Morgan rang up four winners.
Moonlight Cocktail is destined to be bred later this spring to Chapter Seven. The Kadabra-Angostura 5-year-old mare is owned by Richard Gutnick and TLP Stable. She recorded her second win in the last three outings, a 1:53.2 lifetime best in the first $12,000 winners-over trot of the day. Tony Morgan, who has driven her in all of her Dover starts, guided the mare to the victory. Soda Pump (Tim Tetrick) was runner-up with Honor And Serve (Corey Callahan) third.
Sean Bier shot Bro Hanover into the lead on the backstretch and then pulled away for a 1:53.3 career mark in a $12,000 conditioned pace event. Crissy Crissman-Bier owns and trains the 4-year-old altered son of Somebeachsomewhere-Burning Point. It was also his second win in the last three races. Takeittotheface (Morgan) finished second in front of BT's Breeze (Vic Kirby). (Dover)
