DOVER, Del. --- Lounge Act was a 1:55 success in a $14,000 Mares 4&5-Year-Old Winners-Over pace over a 'sloppy' track on a damp Monday, Jan.12 at Dover Down. Corey Callahan continued his multiple-win barrage with five wins while Ron Pierce had four.

After a threesome of 7-post position, Lounge Act drew the rail and responded with 1:55 victory, hid fourth in his seven starts this meet for trainer-driver Vic Kirby and owner Keith Pippi. The Cam's Card Shark-Hay Macarena four-year-old was chased down the lane by Waitingforapplause (Ross Wolfenden) and Flick A Fly (Ron Perce), second and third respectively.

A 9-1 shot Tim Mumford's Romanascape score a 1:57 victory in another $14,000 Mares division. Jim Morand drove the Shane Long conditioned the daughter of Artiscape-Romanticize to her second consecutive triumph and third win in her last five outings. Sophia Seelster (Callahan) was second best. Rachelle's Beat (Pierce) was the show finisher.

Harry von Knoblauch's Scootin For Joy made it two-in-a-row romping to a 1:53.4 score in a $13,000 Mares Winners-Over. Ron Pierce was at the controls as the Western Paradise-Scooting Annie five-year-old cut out the mil closing with a :27.2 panel. Jeremes Sweetheart (Kirby) and Paradise Lost (Jonathan Roberts) raced second and third the entire route.

In another $13,000 female pace, Lindysbathinbeauty with Corey Callahan, driving the Somebeachsomewhere-Sunshine Sister four-year-old, notched a 1:54.3 decision for J&M Racing and CTC Stable. Velocity Sonja (Allan Davis) was runner-up. Seawind Ginger (Wolfenden) took third.

Callahan's five and four by Pierce were followed by two wins for trainer Johnny Waite and two for owner Chris White.

 Swift As A Shadow and Middle Aged Crazy are fresh from wins last time out among eight starters in Tuesday’s $20,000-$25,000 4&5-Year-Old Claiming Handicap pace on Jan. 13 at Dover Downs. Post time is 4:30 p.m.

After racing much of the mile on the outside, Allan Davis and Wade Wyatt’s Swift As A Shadow took the lead in the stretch on the way to a 1:54.2 victory over a track rated as “good.” Middle Aged Crazy, owned by O’Toole, the Somones and trainer Dave McCaffrey, steps up after a wire-to-wire 1:54.1score by a nose in a $15,000 claimer. Moving to a middle post start should aid Harvey Eisman’s Touchdown Mindale and driver Corey Callahan.

Bill Emmons’ Alittleaintenough also, gets an inside post position after consecutive outside posts. George Dennis will drive. Tim Tetrick and CC Racing’s Better And Bold, handled by Trace Tetrick, is a major factor. Wayne King’s L A Charger drops back into the claiming ranks but driver Vic Kirby must leave from outside post eight. Montrell Teague will pilot Frank Chick’s Quincy while Jason Lynch will be behind Jim Jacob’s Button Fly.
