DOVER, Del.---- JK Letitgo won her fifth race in-a-row stepping up the ranks to win her first appearance in the $20,000 Mares Open/Handicap on Monday, March 10 at Dover Downs. Trainer Joe Hundertpfund, Jr. had a big night conditioning four winners from his stable. And she paid off at odds of 7-1, paying $17.60 to win.

Idle since racing in the Miss N.J. at the Meadowlands last August, JK Letitgo returned to the races on Feb. 3 and has been perfect since. The youngest in this week's top female pace, the $20,000 Open/Handicap, the four-year-old daughter of Western Ideal-JK Getoutofmyway, driven by Jonathan Roberts, closed between horses in deep stretch to remain unbeaten after five races this year. Coookin The Books (Allan Davis) and race favorite Jeremes Sweetheart (Ron Pierce) slugged it out early and when a collage of females roared down the lane, JK Sweetheart emerged with the victory.

Gottaseeaboutagirl (Corey Callahan) closed boldly to finish second in front of Jeremes Sweetheart, third. Josh Parker, trains and co-owns the winner with Kevin Evans, Bud Spedden and Nanticoke Racing. JK Letitgo has now won $35,000 in her five 2014 starts.

Nanticoke Racing also shared ownership with Ed Maas and Arlene Paisley in Mach Lady who undoubtedly is currently the winningest claiming mare pacer posting a 1:53.2 triumph in a Delaware $10,000 Mares Claiming Allowance. The Mac Three-Tampa Town six-year-old trained by Les Givens saw a long win streak ended in her previous start finishing third. The victory is her sixth in her last seven outings.

Joe Hundertpfund, Jr. started five horses on the card, and won four: All About Boyz (George Dennis), in the 3rd; JJ'scollegefund (Ron Pierce) in the 6th; Casimir Lawman in the 11th and JK Cheerleader in the 12, both driven by Ross Wolfenden. Only Putnams Kream did not win, but finished third in the 3rd race.

Meet leading driver Corey Callahan advanced to 197 wins this meet piloting three winners; owner Nanticoke Racing also had a triple. Ron Pierce, Wolfenden and Ben Stafford Jr. and trainers Ben Stafford and Les Givens had two trips to the winner's circle each.

Andy Roo goes for third straight score Tuesday

After two straight wins, Andy Roo makes an appearance with a price tag in the $20,000 Male Claiming Allowance at Dover Downs on Tuesday, March 11. Post time is 4:30 p.m.

Allan Davis drives Baron Racing’s Andy Roo, a 38-race winner of $740,373 lifetime in the nine-horse lineup. Cash Cab with meet leading driver Corey Callahan starts from post 9 in the second tier for new owners Moo Coo Inc. and Jonathan Klee Racing who claimed the nine-year-old in his last start. Arty Foster Jr.’s San Antony-O won last time out and will be driven by Tony Morgan. Jeff Bartels’ Last Shot Leeton and Vic Kirby drew the rail.

The other starters are Parker and Nanticoke Racing’s Sir Globalalop Z Tam piloted by Eddie Davis Jr.; Polaris N is reined by Ross Wolfenden and racing for Bill Ethier and LeBlanc Racing; Grab The Fortune, owned by Bill Emmons will be piloted by Jonathan Roberts; Stubbs Hanover, owned and driven by Trace Tetrick; and Raritan Bay is owned by driver Bret Brittingham and Betty Brittingham.
