The sport’s leading dash win driver in 2008, Tony Morgan added five wins to his credit Saturday, March 22 at Dover Downs. One of his winning drives came behind Kattimon, who joined Aint No Misfit in capturing the $19,200 Delaware 4&5-Year-Old Mare twin-feature paces.
Kattimon annexed her third win in a row and fourth in the last five for Mike and Lisa Hill and Green Racing Inc., as Tony Morgan steered the Astreos four-year-old to victory in 1:55.3 in one of the $19,200 co-feature events. Florist (Ben Stafford) came on to finish second with Thevoodoothatyoudo (Vic Kirby) taking the show money. 
Roger Plante, who had three winning drives, took Mike Gannon’s Aint No Misfit right to the front and led every step to a 1:55 score in the first of the $19,200 co-features. On State Sizzle (Eddie Davis Jr.) was second all the way, Goodlands Patty (Brandon Gives) took third.
Adam Zawick’s 19-1 Marathon Hall came thundering down the lane for Sean Bier to score a 1:54.4 victory in a $20,000 Claiming Allowance. Sam’s Clever Boy (Ross Wolfenden), an even longer 56-1, was second with 20-1 On His Way (Ed Nickle) third.
Charles Veneziale’s Napoleon Andrup was strongest in the stretch in a 1:57 triumph in the first of two $11,000 feature trots. Kim Vincent drove the gelding to his first win of the year. CC’s Glide-On-Bye (Joe Columbo) was runner-up. Tom Bruce (Jim Morand) led early and settled for third place.
Valdez closed with a rush for Tom Clendining to overtake leader Beau Windswept (Corey Callahan) in the final stride for a 1:57.3 win. Marvin Meyer owns the Dream Vacation gelding winner of an $11,000 feature trot. Star Lite Stinger (Vic Kirby) was third. 
Guzinthite started a three-straight streak for Tony Morgan in the $10,700 Delaware trot. Charlotte Startt owns the nine-year-old gelding making his first trip to the winner’s circle this year after a 1:59.4 mile. LaSpur (Ross Wolfenden) was second with Hay Nugget (George Dennis) the show finisher.
Roland Wainwright’s Flea Market took Roger Plante to the winner’s circle for the second time after a 1:53.4 victory. Sea Man (Corey Callahan) was a gritty second in front of Beavercreek Harley (Brandon Givens). (Dover Downs)
