On The Cusp wins second straight

DOVER, Del.--- The sport's leading driver, Corey Callahan, piloted On The Cusp to her second win in a row stepping up and besting six foes to win the $20,000 Mares Open pace at Dover Downs on Dr. Martin Luther King day, Monday, Jan.20 program.

Callahan, who streak of three consecutive four-win days at the track came to an end on a day when he only drove two winners, steered On The Cusp to a 1:53.1 success in the week's female feature pace. Rene Allard and Kapildeo Singh own the seven-year-old daughter of Camluck-Headline Hanover who registered her 20th lifetime victory. She has now earned $269,477 in purses. Cooking The Books came storming down the lane with Allan Davis to finish second. Jeremes Sweetheart cut out the pace for Ron Pearce and held on in the four-horse finish for third.

Lloyd's Lady, a four-year-old by Quik Pulse Mindale from the legendary Delaware-mare Sanabelle Island, got up at 21- for Montrell Teague to win the $15,000 4&5-Year-Old Mares pace in 1:53.1. Beechwood Diana (Ross Wolfenden) took second in front of Winbak Speedi (Allan Davis). In deep stretch it appeared the fast closing Mindale's Smile (Ben Stafford Jr.) would win but a short distance from the finish line, she shied in and briefly locked wheels and broke stride.

Allan Davis, Corey Callahan, Tony Morgan, trainer Trish Foulk and owners Foulk Racing and Ben Stafford had two wins each.

On Tuesday, weather permitting, The Dragon is the program pick in the $20,000 4&5-Year-Old Claiming Allowance feature race while Jake's Spur seeks to extend a win streak in the $15,000 Male Claiming pace sub-feature.
