Trotter IPO Blue Chip made his first 2011 harness racing start a winning one while Rusty's Gamble took the top pace on the Saturday, Jan. 8 program at Dover Downs.

IPO Blue Chip, a stakes contender last Fall and fresh from finishing third in the Flower St. Final at Chester, bested eight male opponents to win the $14,500 4 & 5-Year-Old feature trot with Brad Hanners driving the 1:57.1 victory for owner-Freida Ivory. The Yankee Glide-Paloma Hanover four-year-old distaff was followed across the finish line by CC’s Fred (Sean Bier), whose two-race win streak ended with a second-place finish and Timbogo (Matt Kakaley) third. The win lift’s IPO Blue Chip’s career bankroll to $67,870.

Rusty’s Gamble sat outside race favorite Victor Vuitton N (George Dennis) from before the three-quarter pole until deep stretch before pulling away to a 1:53 conquest in a $10,000 Male pace. It was Mike Cole’s second winning drive of the day. The Bettor’s Delight-Triste Hanover gelding is owned and trained by Todd Wise. Artists Rally (Matt Kakaley) was second with Mattifioso (Ron Pierce) the third finisher.

Craig Prettyman’s Racing Naked (Corey Callahan), a 1:56 winner, and Eric Foster’s 12-1 Beechwood Terror (Matt Kakeley) won $20,000 Male Claiming pacers.

Ron Pierce and Mike Cole had driving triples, Corey Callahan and Matt Kakaley had two wins each
