Milby guided No Shadows to a win in the featured $7,500 conditioned event for mares. Milby and No Shadows cut fractions of :27.3, :56.4, and 1:25.1 and sprinted home in :28.2 for a mile in 1:53.3.

At Dover, Bettorhaveanother won her third $25,000 Mares Open in four weeks scoring a 1:50.3 victory which equaled her best winning time set two weeks ago at Dover, on Wednesday.

Tony Morgan was at the controls behind Bettorhaveanother sitting while Nerida Franco N (Allan Davis) and Scandalicious (Tim Tetrick) battled for a :26.4 opening panel. Davis took over and maintained the lead until after turning down the lane broke stride as Bettorhaveanother, who was racing alongside, took the lead and Nerida Franco N broke stride early in the stretch.

From there it was an easy 1:50.3 win for the Bettor’s Delight-Katie My Girl 5-year-old racing for Burke Racing and Weaver Bruscemi. Terror At Night (Mike Cole) hustled up to finish second with Apple Bottom Jeans (Vic Kirby) third in her first start since last July.

Jeff Clark’s She’s A Billionair added 50 percent of the $14,500 mares purse to her account now at $119,463 after Mike Cole notched his second win on the card steering a 1:55 victory overtaking Miss Profitability (Corey Callahan) late in the stretch. It was the first win of 2018 for the Artiscape-She’s Game 4-year-old. Skats Outa The Bag (Bret Brittingham) was the show finisher.

In another $14,500 distaff event, Vic Kirby got up with Shesarocker in 1:53.3 for Mike Hill owner of the Rock N Roll Heaven-Shesa Bragn Dragon 4-year-old. Berazzled (Callahan) came on to finish second with Moments Of Joy (Ross Wolfenden) third. Stormtracker was scratched.

In a $12,000 Mares Winners Over pace, Hold It Hanover went a big trip for Eddie Davis Jr. getting to the front and keeping the lead in the lane for a 1:52.2 triumph for Claim To Fame. Mike all trains the Somebeachsomewhere-Hana Hanover mare who won her first of her 4-year-old season.

Vince Copeland closed out the card guiding Goin Again, a 5-year-old Dragon Again-Ain’t Goin Back mare to win number three this meet, in a 1:54.3 decision in a $12,500 mares winners pace. Unreal (Allan Davis) was next with St. Helena (Kirby) the show horse.

A longshot early in the program is becoming customary. Winrlosedrnkdaboze and Jonathan Roberts won at 25-1 for her first win of the year for Amanda Malone. The Articulator-Hide N McSee mare, now four, bested Controlled Chaos (Donald Davis) and Aunt Babe (Morgan) in the 1:56.4 mile. (Dover)
