DOVER, Del.---- Spunky Jack wired the $15,500 Winners-Over trot, Ideal Revenue, the $14,500 sub-feature while Boffin stepped up for a second win in his last three outings to win the $12,000 trot over 'an off track,' Wednesday, March 19 at Dover Downs.

Roger Plante, Jr. took Walt Callam's Spunky Jack to the front and stayed there in a 1:56 mile to win for the third time in 2014 with four second-place finishes. An altered son of Super Punk-My Embrace, Spunky Jack lifts his seasonal bankroll to $46,825 and $176,371 lifetime. Guiltywithanexcuse (Daryl Bier), trained and driven by Daryl Bier, in his first local appearance since arriving from Pompano Park, finished second. Enrico AS (Ron Pierce) was locked in before escaping along the passing lane for third. I'm So Striking was scratched.

Ideal Revenue has been no worse than third in his last six outings. The Revenue S-New Ideal gelding conditioned by trainer Jim Atkinson posted his third win to go with three seconds and a third in eight 2014 starts for owners Jim and Carol Atkinson. It was one of two wins for George Dennis. Picard (Frank Milby) finished second with Kodak Lindy (Montrell Teague) the third horse.

Boffin continued his ascent with George Dennis driving. The four-year-old Donato Hanover-Trance Anthem horse quickly went into the lead and was never headed in a 1:54.3 conquest in a $12,000 conditioned trot. It was his second win in three races and third in four starts this year for Angela Coombs and trainer Kevin Lare. Veteran Green Day (Allan Davis) was next with Mandabra (Frank Milby) third.

Five drivers registered two wins each: Ross Wolfenden, Jim Morand, Ron Pierce, George Dennis and Allan Davis.

Nova Artist starts from the outside in the $27,500 Delaware Special Handicap on Thursday at Dover Downs.
