Papa Ray heads Dover Downs feature Thursday

DOVER, Del--- Nova Artist, a three-time top feature winner already this meet, returns to the $30,000 Preferred/Open Handicap pace while in the $27,500 Delaware Special, Papa Ray, a two-time winner and Rage N Ryan, a 1:50.3 winner in the Open, top a strong Thursday, Dec. 12 card at Dover Downs. Post time is 4:30 p.m.

In the $30,000 purse-topper, Eddie and Kathy Davis' Nova Artist, second last week after three consecutive victories, takes on Ken Wood, Bill Dittmar and Steve Iaquinta's super sharp Adventure Bound with Ron Pierce and Harry von Knoblauch's Texican N, driven by Ross Wolfenden, both winners last time and Howard Taylor, Weaver Bruscemi and Burke Racing's Escape The News, back from a close second in a Yonkers Open.

KDFM Stable's Bullet Speed, teamed with Marcus Miller, leaves from the rail while Dynamic Youth, with Vic Kirby driving for K.R.Tucci, C&G Racing and J&T Silva complete the field.

Papa Ray (Ross Wolfenden) drops down from the Preferred to the $27,500 Del. Special to take on Max Walton and Greg Papaleo's Mustang Art (Ron Pierce), a 1:50.3 winner last Thursday, Toby Lynch's Sunshine Superman (Jason Lynch), third in the Preferred and Its All Good Stable's Simon's Artist (Vic Kirby). Mary Ann Larrimore's fast finishing Believe This Bob (Montrell Teague) has post 1 with newcomer Its That Time (Eddie Davis Jr.) owned by David King and E&K Stables, complete the fast field.

Rage N Ryan (Corey Callahan), winner of this event last week, is the one to beat in the $17,500 3&4-Year-Old Open Handicap. Iaquinta and Dittmar's Jeremes General, Josh Parker and Nanticoke Racing's Wahine (Jim Morand) and Mike Casalino and Dylan Davis' Lindwood Player (Trace Tetrick) are worth opponents.
