DOVER, Del. --- Driver Eddie Davis Jr. reached a personal milestone when he drove Special Lindy to victory in the 6th race. It was career win #4,000.

Davis, Jr., the son of Delaware Valley great, Eddie Davis, has successfully followed in his father's footsteps along with brothers Allan Davis and Martin Davis (trainer). Even Eddie Davis's nephew (Allan's son) Tyler Davis has just started driving.

Classy N Quik and Bella’s Spunkin won second division legs of DSBF $20,000 preliminary frosh trots while Monocromatic set a lifetime record of 1:50.1 scoring a wire-to-wire victory in the $20,000 Mares Open Handicap pace.

In the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) events, Mike Rossi steered Classy N Quik to victory in the first prelim. Owned and trained by Tom Leager, the Super Punk-Program For Glory filly has now won two of her first three lifetime starts. Way Over Paid (Bryan Truitt) was second in front of Some Sweet Lady (George Dennis).

Bella’s Spunkin made the winner’s circle for the first time as Allan Davis guided the daughter of Super Punk-Nubella to a 2:02.1 score. Joe King trains the winner for breeder-owner Stop The Jade Farm. Linbo Love (Jim Morand) finished third but was placed second when Oso Grateful (Eddie Davis Jr.), second was disqualified and placed third.   

On the regular program, with meet leading driver Corey Callahan at the controls, the Dream Away-Miss Ty eight –year-old held off a valiant charge by runner-up Hot List and Allan Davis from mid backstretch to the finish missing by a length. Jeremes Sweetheart was third for Ross Wolfenden. Monochromatic won for the 13th time this season winning $196,005 for North State Street Stable of Dover, Del. She has won $747,875 in her career.

For the last four decades each Veteran’s Day members of the Military Order of the Purple Heart present an engraved blanket to a race winner. Appropriately, this year, pacer named Always A Fighter, driven by Chris Page, was the winning horse. 

Corey Callahan boosted his meet leading total of wins for the meet to 17 with a driving triple. Dylan Davis notched a training triple.
