Lord Terror (#5) wins by a nose at Dover Tuesday
DOVER, Del.---- Lord Terror scored a relentless 1:53.4 victory to best two rivals at the finish of the $20,000 Male Claiming Allowance at Dover Downs on Tuesday, Feb. 25. Ponder won the other co-feature.

Driver Vic Kirby shook up Lord Terror on the backstretch as he challenged front-pacing Poker Hat (Corey Callahan), the leader from the start. Cash Cab (Trace Tetrick) was also closing strongly on the far outside. Lord Terror and Kirby got up in the final stride for trainer Eric Ell and owner Bill Emmons for his third win of 2014. The Western Terror-Cheryl Hanover gelding also has a second and two thirds to his credit this year. He has won $309,528 lifetime. Poker Hat was a nose behind in second with Cash Cab, third by a neck.

Partner stalked leader Little Michael B until the passing lane, then driver Jonathan Roberts zipped along the inside to quickly move past on the way to a 1:52.2 victory, his career fastest, to win a $20,000 4&5-Year-Old Claiming Allowance. Bobby Glassmeyer owns and trains the Ponder-Dominique Semalu gelding who won for the second time this year. Little Michael B (Callahan) was second nipping Here Is The Future (Montrell Teague) third.

Leading driver Corey Callahan piloted four winners, Vic Kirby won twice and Arty Foster Jr. also had an owner-trainer double.

A pair of million-dollar winners head the top two trots on the Wednesday card; Green Day in the $20,000 Open and Looking Hanover in the $15,000 Winners-Over.
