Dover, DE -  The Mares Open Pace became a family affair on Wednesday night.

Valuable Art, who was driven to victory by Corey Callahan, is trained by his father Nick Callahan and owned by his mother Dolly Callahan.

The morning line favorite, Bettor Joy N was scratched sick. This minimized the field to 5, but did not diminish the quality.

At the start both Delishka N and the ⅘ race favorite Moments Of Joy left alertly.  Moments of Joy attempted to quarter pole to the lead but Alan Davis and Delishka N were stubborn and did not allow that move to occur.  Moments of Joy yielded back to the pocket. 

Delishka N set leisure fractions of :27, :56.1 and 1:24.3.

Valuable Art grinded 1st up at the ¾ pole and pressured the pace setter Delishka N thru a 28.4 third quarter.

Terror at Night labored on the rim nearing the ¾ pole.  This allowed  Moments of Joy and driver Victor Kirby to maneuver off the rail and shadowed Valuable Art 2nd over. 

In the stretch Valuable Art was able to wear down the pace setter Delishk N, who finished last.

Valuable Art won in 1:51.4 by a length at odds of 6-1.


Moments of Joy could not gain any ground in the stretch and finished a gallant 2nd for driver Victor Kirby and trainer Bryan Truitt.

Terror at Night charged home late to finish 3rd for Montrell Teague and trainer Jeff Bamond Jr.

Dexter Dunn won four races. Tim Tetrick won 3 races.

Wiggle It Jiggleit will race in the 12th race Preferred Pace on Thursday.

Dover Downs post time is 4:30 pm.
