DOVER, Del.--- Spin Vision, a Delaware-sired homebred, made it four straight trips to the winner's circle in the $14,500 4&5 Year-Old Mares Winners-Over Monday, March 2 feature at Dover Downs.

Bred, owned and trained by Virginia Louthan, Spin Vision rolled down the passing lane with Ron Pierce to record a 1:53.4 career best victory in the day's headliner. Ms. Louthan owns the No Spin Zone - David's Art brown filly, the only three-year-old in the nine-horse lineup.

Velocity Sonja, as usual, cut out the early fraction with McArma (Vic Kirby) pressing hard on the outside from mid-backstretch until deep in the stretch. Pierce, enjoying a 2-hole trip exploded upon reaching the passing lane and darted to victory. McArma was a game second with Hidden Land (Roger Plante) coming on to finish third. Spin Vision is now a perfect four-for-four this year with seven lifetime wins and four seconds in 15 races good for $65,480 earnings.

In a $13.000 distaff pace, Bay Pod Racing's Hearts N Flowers, over looked at 8-1, won for the third time in her last five starts with two seconds, as Allan Davis guided the Artiscape - Hasty Dewar mare to victory in 1:53.3. Twin B Heartland (Corey Callahan) was runner-up. Valerya (Jonathan Roberts) recovered from locking wheels with Jeremes Sweetheart (Kirby) on the backstretch, to close well for third. The win was the 14th lifetime for Hearts N Flowers extending her earnings to $186,361.

Allan Davis, Ron Pierce and Tony Morgan had two wins, including a 29-1 shot for Morgan driving Yanklet Hanover in a $12,500 mares pace.
