Monochromatic (#7) wins by a nose over Jeremes Sweetheart
DOVER, Del.---- After winning last week's $20,000 Mares Open/Handicap pace by three-quarters of a length, the nine-year-old won this week by a nose to take the female feature race at Dover Downs on Monday, Jan.27. For the second straight day, Ron Pierce racked up a four bagger. .

Monochromatic, reined by Corey Callahan, won the top distaff pace for the fourth time this meet holding off fast finishing Jeremes Sweetheart, teamed with Ron Pierce, closing along the passing lane in the tight photo. North State Street Stable owns the daughter of Dream Away-Miss Ty, who won for the 48th time in her career while earning $774,155. A 17-1 shot Paradise Lost, driven by Ross Wolfenden was the show horse.

Don Reed and trainer George Wagner's Grandview Hanover registered a 1:53.2 triumph in the $15,000 4&5-Year-Old Mares pace, her third win in her last four outings and fourth win of the meet. Ron Pierce, pinch hit for ailing driver George Dennis, and piloted the Dragon Again-Gifted Hanover four-year-old to the impressive victory. Mindale's Smile (Ben Stafford Jr.) took second money in front of Romanascape (Callahan).

Sambad finally broke a string of four consecutive second-place finish scoring a 1:54.4 victory in a Delaware $10,000 Male Claiming pace. It complete a Ross Wolfenden's back-to-back driving double.

Pierce led all drivers with four winners, Wolfenden and Allan Davis had doubles.

No return winners in Tuesday feature

None of the nine starters in the Tuesday feature race, a $20,000 4&5-Year-Old Claiming pace, won last time out but Little Man Joe and The Dragon appear the sharpest on Jan. 28, at Dover Downs. Post time is 4:30 p.m.

Last week, Bill Emmons’ The Dragon, with Allan Davis at the controls, finished second last time. Meanwhile, Tina Clark’s ittle Man Joe, driven by meet leader, Corey Callahan, has back-to-back thirds including three thirds in his last four starts. Mike Casalino and trainer Dylan Davis’ Remember Will, handled by Trace Tetrick, makes his claiming debut.

Ilikethemtrashy, a Donna Messick and Nanticoke Racing homebred, is among the challengers. Tony Morgan will drive Dot Morgan’s Singing Saint, while Vic Kirby will be behind Lauren Allen’s Motley Fool. Tina Clark’s well-bred Jingle Bell Rocker, piloted by Ron Pierce, starts from the rail. A major post-position change makes Hotspeed, steered by Chris Page for Anthony Capone and the Roberto brothers, an interesting contender. The Onlyest One, owned by Frieda Ivory and Ken Mitchell will be driven by George Dennis from outside post 8.
