DOVER, Del.---- Dancin Yankee wins his second consecutive $30,000 Preferred/Handicap Pace; and All Stienam, the $27,500 Delaware Special, both driven by Chris Page for trainer Josh Green and part of a four-win output for the trainer and driver, dominated the top races of the Dover Downs week on Thursday, Feb. 6.

Page sent Baron Racing's Dancin Yankee three wide on the last turn to blitz home a 1:50.2 winner in the $30,000 feature to overtake front-pacing Texican N and Ross Wolfenden with Rock On Moe, steered by George Dennis, It was the fourth straight for the Yankee Cruiser-Dancewiththebest six-year-old, now undefeated in 2014, and a career winner of 28 races and $629,822.

The Page-Green tandem struck again in the $27,500 Del. Special when All Stienam overtook Mustang Art (Ron Pierce) in deep stretch for a 1:50.4 success for J,J&M Stable and Green Racing. People Are Crazy (Vic Kirby) escaped being locked in to rally for third-place honors. The victory was the third in four starts with a second for All Stienam, a Tell All-Odds On Stienam gelding.

Corey Callahan, who drove three winners, guided Lindwood Player home in 1:51 in the $18,000 4&5-Year-Old Open marking the first of two wins for meet-leading trainer Dylan Davis, who co-owns The Panderosa-Direct Player five-year-old with Mike Casalino. Just Bettor (Trace Tetrick) went a valiant front-pacing trip to finish second by a head. Handsome Henry K (Frank Milby) was the show finisher.

There were three $15,000 paces: Baron Racing's first of two winners was Summer Camp, trained by Green with Page driving, a 1:52.3 winner of a $15,500 Male Winners-Over pace; Crissman Inc.'s Fancy Colt and Tony Morgan in 1:53.1 to win the first of two $15,000 4&5-Year-Old Male paces with Bobby Glassmeyer's Bettor's Arena with Jonathan Roberts turning in an impressive 1:52.4 win in the other.

In addition to Page and Green, Corey Callahan and Ron Pierce, all had four wins; owners Howard Taylor and Baron Racing had doubles.

The big four-win driving show by Chris Page was his final assignment at Dover Downs. He now heads back to his native Ohio to race at the new Miami Valley meet.
