DOVER, Del.---- Baximum, who had been knocking for week's won last week's $20,000 Open Handicap trot beating Green Day and Cash On Delivery. All return for the Wednesday, Feb. 26 feature race at Dover Downs. First post is 4:30 p.m.

Again Daryl Bier raced Baximum from off the pace for trainer Bobby Clark and owners Tina Clark and Joe Clark. The veteran trotter was last but three-wide at the three quarters before storming home a 1:54.4 winner. Walt Callam's Spunky Jack was racing second and made two missteps in the lane but was quickly returned to trotting by Roger Plante and still finished second. Corey Callahan hustled Mandabra, owned by C.A. Bonuccelli and Nick and Shaun Callahan, up to finish third.

Mary Raymer's veteran Green Day has shown signs of returning to the form which enabled the 10-year-old to bank more than $1.3 million in his career. Vic Kirby will back in the driver's seat. David Miller's Cash On Delivery, teamed with Vince Copeland, appears to have returned to top form. Barbara Boese's Awsome Valley, driven by Tony Morgan, was not at his best a week ago, and starts from post 6 in the select field.

A highly competitive $15,000 Winners-Over trot is the sub-feature, Chris Giaccio and driver Vic Kirby's Can Do steps up after an impressive win last Wednesday. Looking Hanover (Ron Pierce) another $1-million winner, is back in top form. I'm So Striking (Eddie Dennis) drew the rail for Lois and Earl Walters and E&K Stables while Ken Wood, Bill Dittmar and Steve Iaquinta's Enrico AS (Allan Davis) drops down from the Open ranks in the eight-horse field.
