DOVER, Del.--- Corey Callahan and Somebody As made it look easy rolling to a second consecutive victory in the $24,000 Open/Handicap trot on a windy and chilly Wednesday, March 2, at the harness racing meeting at Dover Downs.

Somebody As and Callahan got away quickly from the outside to take the early lead and continued to extend the margin until turning for home when War Cry Hall with Tim Tetrick picked up the pace in the stretch to close within a half-length at the wire in 1:54.3.

Owned by Kjell Johansson and breeder ACI Stuteri, the seven-year-old altered son of Striking Sahbra-Noblesse AS, conditioned by Anette Lorentzon, recorded his third win in four starts this season and victory number 24 and $475,583 in lifetime earnings.

Winemaster Hanover (Toby Lynch) edged Panamanian Hanover (Tony Morgan) for third money.

Jack Parker Jr. found room along the passing lane and led a cavalcade of trotters to the finish line in a lifetime record 1:55.4 clocking to win the secondary feature $15,000 4&5-Year-Old event.

It was the third win of the year with three seconds in eight starts for the RC Royalty-Becca J gelding, who now has banked $34,700 for owner Jim Moore III. Stirling Diva (Tetrick) closed for second in front of Kolbee's Star (Callahan), third.

Ragazzo Dolce. a classically-bred Muscles Yankee-Bella Dolce gelding driven by Jim Morand for owners Mike Casalino and trainer Dylan Davis, returned to the winner's circle for the first time since January when he won eight races in-a-row, poured it on in the stretch on the way to a 1:55.1 triumph in one of three $12,000 trots on the supporting card.

Enrico AS (Allan Davis) was next best with Awsome Valley (George Dennis) the third-place finisher.

Tim Tetrick drove PL Incoming to a lifetime best 1:57 score in a second $12,000 trot, this one for 4&5-year-olds.

Winsun Cobra (Pat Berry) and Dance For Me Sasha (Vic Kirby) were second and third respectively. Rich Lombardo and JJ&M Stable own the Kadabra -Kaparah gelding trained by Josh Green, who won for the first time in 2016.

Tetrick returned in the final $12,000 trot, to guide odds-on favorite Maestro Blue Chip to his fourth-straight victory in 1:54.1.

The Credit Winner-Up Front Holsey horse is trained by Jim King for Richard Pollucci. A 29-1 shot Brew Master (Allan Davis) was runner-up. Eskimo Joe (Callahan) was the show horse.

Tim Tetrick drove three winners and Corey Callahan had a double,
