Sky Marshal, who upset Super Fly to win last November's $100,000 two-year-old male trot title, did it again by scoring a 1:59.3 surprising victory in the $20,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund second leg 3-year-old male trot preliminary on a rainy and chilly Tuesday over an off-track at Dover Downs.

In addition to winning the first race on the card, driver Carlo Poliseno won both ends of the daily double by steering Cicada's Song, a former DSBF champion, to victory in the second race in 1:57.3.

Veteran horseman Poliseno got away third with Sky Marshal as Super Fly ad Art Stafford Jr. cut out the leading fractions. On the final turn, Poliseno pulled Sky Marshal out and quickly engaged the leader and blew past en route to his first win of the year in two starts. Poliseno and Jane Dunavant own the CR Commando-CR Penny Lane colt who now has won $86,000 for his eight starts. Super Fly and Bother Kenny (Tim Tetrick) finished in a dead heat for second.

Theresademoninme won the $30,000 Open Handicap Trot with a powerful display. Jonathan Roberts, handicapped with outside post seven in the week's top trot, moved the Kadabra-Tortoni gelding out of third heading to half-mile and mid-backstretch took the lead from race favorite Melady's Monet and steadily moved away from the field.

Theresademoninme won easily by open lengths in 1:54.2 for trainer Dylan Davis who owns the 7-year-old with Mike Casalino Jr. I Like My Boss (Allan Davis) edged Celebrity Pegasus (Stafford Jr.) for place. Melady's Monet was fourth.

Holiday Promise, guided by Tony Morgan, held off Torkil in 1:56 to win a $16,000 conditioned trot. Euro Gap (Corey Callahan) was the show horse. Howard Taylor and Rich Lombardo own Holiday Promise, a brown 4-year-old daughter of Holiday Road-Promisemespring, one of two winners trained by Josh Green.

Tim Tetrick drove Go Byem to his second straight victory in a $15,000 winners-over trot. Blownoutofthewater (Tony Morgan) was runner-up with Filled Donut (Stafford Jr.) third. Go Byem's win was the 21st for the Delaware-bred Impel Hanover-Go Sassy Go gelding who now has banked $227,784 for owners Delbert Cain and Nanticoke Racing.
