DOVER, Del --- I Love My Boss made good use of leaving from post 1 as arguably the finest Delaware-sired harness racing trotter came down the passing lane, and when front-trotting Thereisademoninme broke stride nearing the finish line, reached the finish line first in 1:55.3 to win the $25,000 Open trot at Dover Downs.

Jonathan Roberts was content to race behind Thereisademoninme this week, after cutting the mile last week, to only finish third beaten three-quarters of a length. Uva Hanover with Tim Tetrick driving put pressure on Thereisademoninme from mid-backstretch until late in the stretch, and finished third but was placed second. Thereisademoninme was a breaking second in the photo but was disqualified because of a lapped-on break and place fourth. Kanthaka, handled by Tony Morgan, was fourth then placed third.

I Love My Boss, the former DSBF champion at two and three, was bred and races for trainer Bob Shahan and Jim and Ashley Parsons. Now six, the Don Boss Vita-Wild One gelding has won $108,956 this season and $498.220 lifetime.

Jim Moore's Royal Becca J (Jack Parker Jr.) in 1:56.3Hollywood Highway (Tim Tetrick) in 1:55.2 won $12,000 Winners sub-feature trots.
