Harness racing driver Tim Tetrick directed Sage N to her third win of the meet in the $24,000 pace at Dover Downs on a Ides of March Tuesday, March 15, at Dover Downs. Tony Morgan and Andrew McCarthy had three wins each.

A major change in post positions from 8 last week to the rail was advantageous for Sage N who led the way from early in the $24,000 distaff feature to a 1:52 triumph. Trained by Scott DiDomenico for C.V.Iannazzo, JFE Enterprise and Triple D Stables, the six-year-old daughter of Christian Cullen-Smart Decision has picked up a check in six of her seven starts at the track including three wins while earning $31,450 this year. The win was the second for Tetrick. Empress Deo closed strongly for Allan Davis to finish second with 41-1 shot Matinee Dragon and Montrell Teague, third.

One race earlier, Tetrick steered Caviart Scarlett to her fourth consecutive win in an $18,500 4&5-Year-Old Mares Winners-Over pace. It was win four in her last five starts and sixth in seven 2016 races for the Rich Lombardi, C.A.Atley and JJ&M Stable owned four-year-old by Sportswriter-Caviart Sydney, trained by Josh Green. Nice Trip (Davis) came on fast for second money while Cover Up Hall (Art Stafford Jr.) was third. The 2016 four-year-old debut of $1-million winner, Sassy Hanover, was not a success. Driver Andrew McCarthy put her into action several times but to no avail as she finished eighth.

In a $16,000 pace for young females, Truth And Liberty, owned by Only Money Inc., made it two-in-a-row as Andrew McCarty guided the Total Truth-Jazzy Hall four-year-old, conditioned by Jason Skinner, to her fourth win of the year. She swept past front pacing Marigold Bloom (George Dennis) in mid-stretch for the 1:54 victory. Westluckycam (Vic Kirby) was third ending a five-race win streak.

Ross Wolfenden piloted Bill Hall's Cedar Hall Heiress from off-the-pace to a 1:54.2 decision in a $14,000 pace for 4&5-year-old females beating Lady Spartacus (Tyler Davis) to the finish line after chasing leader Miss Read (Vic Kirby) who led coming for home. A daughter of Riggins-Paris The Heiress, the win for the Brian Wright trainee, was the second this year in eight starts.

PT Stable's Jetomatt stormed home first via the passing lane at 63-1 odds to become the second highest longshot of 2016 at the track. The win in a $9,000 distaff pace was the first of the year for the Jereme's Jet-Mattoftheyear four-year-old.

Two drivers collared three wins each, Andrew McCarthy and Tony Morgan, who is currently third in the driver standings with 113 wins this meet. Ross Wolfenden, in fourth place, with a driving double, now has 100 wins. Tim Tetrick and George Dennis, also had two winners.
