Garnet O'Marrow's homebred Seboomook Fool Yah, with Allan Davis in the sulky, was an impressive winner of both of his $20,000 prelims. The Wiz Kids Stable has interest in two of the eight starters.

One is Jonigold, with Corey Callahan driving from post 8, the other as partner with Tina Dennis and driver George Dennis on I'm Won Rum Wiser.

Hasty Western in lifetime best mile Sunday

Hasty Western, an 8-1 shot, came on in the stretch to score a lifetime fastest, 1:51.3, victory in the $20,000-25,000 Male Claiming pace on the final Sunday of the Dover Downs 2013-2014 season on April 6. Driver Allan Davis won a four bagger. 

Well back in the nine-horse field, Hasty Western never became involved until the contestants reached the top of the lane. From the half until mid-stretch, Lord Terror (Sean Bier) and Andy Roo (Tony Morgan) engaged in a heated side-by-side battle. Allan Davis then sent Hasty Western four-wide and rolled to the finish line holding off Raritan Bay (Bret Brittingham) at the wire.  Lord Terror, who had two claims on him, bravely held on for third place. Mark Givens and Legacy Racing own the winner, a Western Hanover-Up Front Sassy gelding who won for the second time this year.

Boca Hanover registered her fourth consecutive victory as trainer-driver Frank Milby piloted The Panderosa-Bikini Hanover 12-year-old to victory for Denise Beaver. RD Elegant Yankee (Roger Plante) took second with If Only You Knew (Mike Rossi) coming on for third.  

Allan Davis completed the day with four wins; owner Legacy Racing of Delaware, trainer Wayne Givens and driver Jim Morand, who usually doesn’t drive on Sundays, had two wins each.

Only four more racing days this meet with each featuring a $100,000 DSBF final daily. Post time is 4:30 p.m. To watch races and dine in the Winner’s Circle restaurant, call 302-674-4600 for reservations.
