Dover, DE - Moments of Joy and driver Victor Kirby left quickly to start off the Mares Open Pace at Dover Downs on Wednesday as Rockin the Boys A and Driver Dexter Dunn found a seat, nearing the quarter pole.

Wisdom Tree, the three to five race favorite, and driver Tony Morgan settled, then rushed to the top past the quarter pole.  They set fractions of :27.1,  :55 and 1:23 as Valuable Art, rushed 1st up for driver Corey Callahan, and pressured the leader to the three quarters.

Moments Of Joy waited patiently in the pocket and stormed home down the inside to win by a half length at odds of 9/2 in 1:51.1. Moments of Joy was driven by Victor Kirby and is owned and trained by Bryan Truitt.

Finishing 2nd was Wisdom Tree for driver Tony Morgan and trained by Jeff Cullipher. Rockin the Boys A was third for driver Dexter Dunn and trainer Andrew Harris.

Moments Of Joy was a $6,000 yearling purchase by Bryan Truitt. With the win,  her lifetime earnings now exceed over $200,000.

Bryan Truitt stated in the paddock after the race “ Not bad for a yearling that nobody wanted”.
