Eternal Camnation continued her push for consideration for Horse of the Year honors Monday afternoon, Nov. 3, by winning her seventh straight race, this time in world record time in the second leg of the Classic Series at Dover Downs.



With Eric Ledford driving, Eternal Camnation went to the front and led all the way, drawing clear to a four-length win in 1:51.1 over Bunny Lake (John Stark Jr.) and Always Cam (David Miller). The time lowered the world mark for older pacing mares on a five-eighths mile track by one-fifth of a second.



With the win in the $65,000 race, Eternal Camnation continues her domination over arguably the toughest cast of older mare pacers ever assembled in a single season. The 6-year-old mare trained by Jeff Miller for the Eternal Camnation Stable also moved within $23,000 of reaching the $3 million mark for her career.



Malabar Mist started off Classic Series action with a 1:54.1 victory in the first of two $45,000 Oaks divisions for older trotting mares. With Miller in the sulky, Malabar Mist defeated Cartier Hall and Ringside Leah. In the process she lowered the world mark for 4-year-old trotting mares on a five-eighths mile track by one-fifth of a second, but the record was short-lived.



In the second Oaks division, Windylane Hanover lowered the world mark for 4-year-old trotting mares even further when she posted a 1:53.4 victory. With Ron Pierce driving, Windylane Hanover came from the back of the pack in the six-mare field to charge to the win, edging Gypsy Balance. Tempo-setter Cameron Hall had to settle for third.



Magician won his third straight and 46th of his career in the $85,000 Classic Open Trot. With Luc Ouellette driving, Magician made the top just past the opening quarter after settling in fourth early. From there he trotted comfortably to the wire in 1:54.4, downing Saint Johns Boy and Lifes A Holiday.



Peruvian Hanover made it two straight Classic Series victories with yet another dazzling come-from-behind effort in the $85,000 contest for older male pacers. With Pierce driving, Peruvian Hanover circled the field in the final turn and then hold off the late bid of the ground-saving Cheyenne Rei to gain the decision in 1:51.3. Four Starzzz Shark was third after leading much of the route.
