Itsrockandroll A storm's home to harness racing victory and wins the Open Pace at Dover Downs on Thursday night.

US Captain and Tiger Thompson N traded leads going to the quarter pole.

Dexter Dunn won that early battle and retained the lead. The quarter was reached in 27.1.  The half was reached uncontested in 55.2.

At the five eighths marker,  Itrockandroll A and Corey Callahan pulled off the rail from fifth and inched their way 1st over, down the backside. Tiger Thompson N was challenged to the three quarters in 1:22.4,  pacing a quarter in 27.2

Soho Burning Love A, who  was competing against the boys for the first time, shadowed Itsrockandroll A on the outside.  

Corey Callahan was able to keep Soho Burning Love A at bay on the rim and zeroed in on Tiger Thompson N in the deep stretch.  Itsrockandroll A won by a nose in 1:50.2 and paid $7.

Itsrockandroll A ( A Rocknroll Dance)  is owned by Michael Casalino Jr. and Dylan Davis.  Dylan Davis trained and Corey Callahan drove a masterful race.

Tiger Thompson N finished second and raced gallantly for trainer Joshua Parker.  Dexter Dunn was the chauffier.

Soho Burning Love A ,  the three to five race favorite, was a fast closing third, for trainer Jim King Jr. and driver Tim Tetrick.

Sadly, Joe Wehausen, the owner of Sandy’s Bolt who finished 6th in the race, passed away suddenly last week.  Our condolences to his family.

Racing resumes at Dover Downs on Monday post time is 4:30 pm.
