Soho Burning Love A wins the Mares Preferred Pace at Dover Downs on Wednesday (Jan. 6) night. World Champion Shartin N, led the field in the post parade one last time with her trainer Jim King Jr. in the bike, as she started her next journey into retirement.

Her stablemate Soho Burning Love A apparently wanted some of her own love and won the Mares Preferred pace. She’s Pukka N and Feelin Red Hot were quickest away from the gate. Feelin Red Hot retook the lead from She’s Pukka N and posted :27.3 opening quarter. She remained on an uncontested lead to the half in :55.2.

Soho Burning Love A chose to race from off the pace and was able to shadow a perfect second over trip from race favorite Bettors Heart N. The three quarters were reached in 1:23.2.

A classic stretch duel between Bettors Heart N and Soho Burning Love A ensued. But just like her stablemate Shartin N did so many time during her racing career, Soho Burning Love A, was able to dig down deep and grind out a victory.

The race time was 1:51.3 and the margin of victory was a head. She was sent off as the 3/2 second choice in the wagering. Soho Burning Love A (Auckland Reactor N) is owned by Richard Poillucci and Jo Ann Looney-King the same former owners of Shartin N. Jim King Jr. trained and Tim Tetrick was her driver.

Finishing second was a game, race favorite, Bettors Heart N. She is trained by R.Nifty Norman. Dexter Dunn was her driver. Machnhope finished third for trainer Noel Daley and driver Andrew McCarthy. Tim Tetrick lead all drives with five wins on the card.

Live racing continues Thursday at Dover Downs. Post Time is 4:30 p.m.
