DOVER, Del. --- Cheyenne Robin, the only four-year-old in the lineup, used a late surge nearing the finish line to score a 1:51.2 lifetime mark winning the $20,000 Mares Open pace at Dover Downs on Tuesday, Feb. 2. Harness racing driver Tim Tetrick tripled.  

Corey Callahan pulled Cheyenne Robin out of fifth in front of the grandstand and eased the Rocknroll Hanover-Cheyenne Margie bay up on the outside to finally engage front-pacing Scandalicious (Tony Morgan) heading to the three quarters where the twosome battled around the final turn. The pair were side by side in the lane with Springforth (George Dennis) coming along the passing lane. Cheyenne Robin then rallied to reach the wire first with Springforth taking second in front of Scandalicious, third. Leased by The Cheyenne Gang, the daughter of Rocknroll Hanover-Cheyenne Margie won for the second time with a second in three 2016 starts. It was her 12 lifetime victory advancing lifetime earnings to $178,414. The winning driver was Callahan’s third on the card.

Mildred’s Button pulled out of fifth in mid final turn and came four-wide under the direction of Montrell Teague and then rolled past the leaders for a 1:54.4 victory in the $15,000 secondary feature. It was Teague’s second win and the first of the year for the American Ideal-Miss It Mildred five-year-old mare, her trainer Dave Rearic and owners Bill Mears and Janine McIlvain. Lady Beth (Tetrick) and Cover Up Hall (Wolfenden) were second and third respectively.

Tim Tetrick guided Sage N to a 1:51.2 triumph in a $12,500 distaff pace. Shine N Shimmer (Callahan) and Valerya (Jonathan Roberts) dueled from the backstretch to mid-homestretch before Sage M began her charge to the win. The Christian Cullen-Smart Decision mare is trained by Scott DiDomenico for C.V. Iannozzo, Triple D Stables and JFE Entertainment.  It was her first win of the New Year. Matinee Dragon (G.Dennis) closed for second with Shine N Shimmer holding on for the third place check.   

Meet leader Corey Callahan drove three winners, Tim Tetrick, Tony Morgan and Jonathan Roberts had two wins apiece.
