Yada Yada Yada A streaked from last to first in 1:52.1 to win the $24,000 Filly and Mare Open-Handicap Pace while Riley Rose won the $21,000 distaff pace in 1:52.2 at Dover Downs on Tuesday. Tony Morgan and Tim Tetrick had three wins each, Brad Hanners and Ross Wolfenden drove two wins apiece while Tony Domino had an owner-trainer double.

Ross Wolfenden reversed tactics driving the usual fast-leaving Yada Yada Yada A in the $24,000 week\'s top feature for female pacers. Last, but on the move at the three-quarters the 6-year-old Armbro Operative mare rolled four wide around the final turn and overtook Poppy Lustre N and Tetrick sprinting down the passing lane to secure a neck victory in 1:52.1. Dance Hall with Steve Warrington, first to move challenging front-pacing Sake Away on the backstretch, gamely held on for third.

The victory was ninth of the year for Yada Yada Yada A, owned by Bill Dittmar, Steve Iaquinta, Henry King and Ken Wood, and trained by Eric Ell. She has earned $134,845 this campaign.

Riley Rose who campaigned on the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes circuit this season enjoyed a perfect trip following another 3-year-old, Binions and Jim Morand, until the top of the lane where Sean Bier pulled the Real Artist filly to the outside and on to a 1:52.2 victory holding off a fast closing Riddlemethat with Corey Callahan coming on boldly along the passing lane. Binions held on for third. Riley Rose, a homebred owned by Ester Bier of Dover, Del. won for the seventh time this season and now has won $120,839 in purses this year.

The sport\'s leading dash-winning driver this season Morgan won his second of the night guiding Tony Domino\'s Love And Lust N to a 1:54 score in the first of two $15,500 all-female paces. Pacific Illusion (Wolfenden) got up for second in front of CB Star (Tetrick).

In the other $15,500 division, Jim Morand urged Teague Inc.\'s Firiel Hanover to the front in the final stride for a career fastest 1:52.4 victory. The sophomore daughter of Camluck has now won five of her last seven starts. I\'m All In (Tetrick) led from the start and fought off a strong challenge from Pacific Philly on the backstretch to finish second. Carousel Frame (Ben Stafford Jr.) was a half-length back in third.

Wesley Nolan\'s Bamba Hanover had just enough to hold off fast finishing Another Wave (Brandon Givens) and Wish Of A Lifetime (Morand) for a 1:56.1 victory. Brad Hanners drove the Badlands Hanover 3 year old to the win in a $12,500 filly and mare pace.

A 15-1 shot won the $10,200 Delaware filly and mare pace. Bob Kinsey Jr. made his move driving Playus A Happytune just before the three-quarter pole then moved three wide around the last turn before taking the lead and opening up for an easy 1:55.4 victory. The Tune Town-sired filly was 15-1 despite two thirds and a win in her last four outings for owners Bill and Barbara Kinsey.

In a $10,000 paces for females, Morgan took Richard and Pat Arndt\'s Rafaella Seelster to the front early on the way to a 1:53.4 triumph. Dee Dee King (Sam Belote) closed well to finish second in front of Mibby (Tetrick). (Dover Downs)
