DOVER, Del.--- For the second straight week, Nova Artist recreated a 1:50.4 victory to win the $30,000 Preferred pace while Jeremy's Successor step up for a second consecutive victory taking the $27,500 Delaware Special, the top two races on a powerful Thursday, Jan. 16 program. Allan Davis put Nova Artist into high gear in the stretch and the Real Artist-Avon Lady overwhelmed five foes for a 1:50.2 triumph in the week's top pace. The Delaware Valley's all-time leading driver, Eddie Davis, now retired from driving for the most part, trains and owns Nova Artist with his wife Kathy. The win was the 32nd in his career for the 7-year-old who now has banked $798,167 lifetime. Ultra consistent Adventure Bound closed with Ron Pierce to finish second. Texican N and Ross Wolfenden closed with a rush for third. The win was the fifth top-class event won by Nova Artist, a former Dover Downs Horse of the Meet. Jeremy's Successor made good use of starting from post 1, as Trace Tetrick was content to sit behind front-pacing Sunshine Superman (Toby Lynch) and race -favorite Mustang Art (Ron Pierce) battling head-to-head for much of the race. Tetrick then pulled out in the stretch to overtake the leaders en route to a 1:51.4 victory in the $27,500 Del. Special. It was the 10-year-old Mach Three-Gentle Audrey gelding's third win in his last four outings. Jeremy's Successor is trained by Crissy Bier for Heavenly Ways stable. Sunshine Superman put in a gritty showing to finish second in front of fast finishing Papa Ray (Ross Wolfenden), third. GD Airliner, a recent addition for owner Howard Taylor, moved strongly after the half to challenge leader Summer Camp (Chris Page) and go on for a 1:51.2 score in the $20,000 Male Winners-Over pace. Meet leading driver Corey Callahan was in the bike behind the Dylan Davis-conditioned Panspaciflight-MacKenzie Beth gelding. Believe This Bob (Montrell Teague) closed to take second in front of Summer Camp. Baron Racing and VIP Internet stable's All Stienam also won for the second-straight time scoring a 1:51.4 win in a $17,500 4&5-Year-Old Open pace to give trainer his second win of the day. Chris Page drove the Tell Me-Odds On Stienam gelding to his third victory in his last five starts. Lindwood Player (Corey Callahan) and Just Bettor (Trace Tetrick) were second and third respectively. Bobby Glassmeyer's Partner won a $15,000 Male 4&5-Year Old Winners-Over pace in 1:54.3 with Jonathan Roberts handling the controls. CC Heet Seeker closed out the card with a 1:51.3 decision for trainer-driver Daryl Bier who owns the Nuclear Breeze Sunrise Ridge gelding with Charley Dombeck, Rich Pollucci and Mc Trade Entertainment. Corey Callahan drove Gary Ewing's ad Man Sam to a 1:52.1 victory in a $25,000-$30,000 Claiming Handicap. Callahan had a four-bagger for the second consecutive night. Allan Davis collected three winners while Trace Tetrick won two. by Marv Bachrad for Dover Downs

PORT ROYAL PA - Pennsylvania-sired three-year-olds were spotlighted Wednesday on a beautiful day at the Juniata County Fairgrounds in Port Royal PA. Monroe County, who has set two all-age track records and two other divisional track records this summer at the local fairs, bounced back to form from the trailing post seven to post a 2:03.4 win in her division of the filly trot, by over two seconds the fastest Sire Stakes mile of the day on the diamond gait. In doing so, the Glidemaster filly ended the 6-6 fair run of Homepage, who finished second, for driver Aaron Johnston and trainer John McMullen Jr ., the latter co-owner with Michelle McMullen (all doublers on the day). The redoubtable Roger Hammer took three races with horses he owns, trains, and drove, including two cuts of the 3PC races. The faster was the Somebeachsomewhere gelding Camturo Beach, now 8-6-2-0 at the PA twicearounds after the speediest mile of the day, 2:02.2; the other was the homebred Nuclear Breeze gelding Falcon's Breeze, who despite being last year's leading pointleader was winning only for the first time at the fairs this year when, undoubtedly relishing the scratch of the thunderous McAlvin, he tallied in 2:05.1, with a 29.1 kicker. (Hammer's ol' wrestling buddy from their Bedford-area high school days, Sam Beegle, won the other glamor division event with newcomer Nittany Nation in 2:03.2.) Have More Wine drew the inside of the field of four and Keystone Wanda, second-fastest fair Sires performer of the year (1:57.2, behind McAlvin's twin 1:57s), drew the outside - and that may have made the difference in the quickest 3PF division, with the Western Terror filly Have More Wine victorious for the seventh time at the fairs, here in 2:03-29.2 for trainer/driver Steve Schoeffel (three wins in the sulky and two as a coniditioner) and owners Virginia and Kathy Schoeffel, James Reuther, and James Nelson. The Port Royal racing began on Tuesday night with contests for two-year-olds. Unfortunately, the times for the freshman heats had to be voided (NTR). The Port Royal oval is known as Port Royal Speedway, home to good local car racing, 363 days of the year, and is less than a half-mile in circumference; after harness rainouts in 2011 and 2012, the old marks for precise placements of the start/finish and other "quarter poles" were no longer in place, and a small miscalculation when setting up for Tuesday resulted in time quicker than expected; when the track was remeasured and set to rights for Wednesday's card, it was decided in total overall fairness to disallow the Tuesday times. While there may be no chronological basis for measure, the mind against the memory still produces strong impressions of special victories, and among Tuesday's from this corner's perspective were: --The Boots Dunn bred/owned/trained pair of 2TFs, Bella Palazzo and especially Glide By Shooting. Both were driven by Brian Zendt; before the races Brian, brother Phil, father Bill, and grandfather/patriarch Wilbur, who hails from Juniata County, were honored in impressive trackside ceremonies. --2PC El Chivato, now 5 for 5 at the fairs, and his filly counterpart Southern Sweetie, who controlled the throttle and won in hand to run her lifetime record to 5-3-2-0. FINISHING LINES - They'll draw Sunday for Monday (2YOs) and Tuesday (3YOs) racing at the York Fair, third-to-last stop on this year's circuit, with action both days starting at 10:30 am. by Jerry Connors
HONESDALE PA - Right about now, Tanah Merah Farms LLC owner Richard Kulle may be talking to his trainer about using this "E. Miller" fellow in the sulky more often. "E. Miller" is of course famous trainer Erv Miller, who yesterday became Honesdale track-record-setting trainer/driver Erv Miller after he guided Wicked Elphaba to a 2:01.2 score in a division of the Pennsylvania Fair Sire Stakes three-year-old filly pace, a Honesdale divisional track record and three seconds faster than any other race on the card, reserved for sophomores. Wicked Elphaba, a daughter of Western Terror named after the "bad witch" played by Margaret Hamilton in The Wizard of Oz and a combination of the initials of Oz's writer L. Frank Baum [el/ph(f)a-ba] , had shown herself quite capable on the circuit, with a 3-1-1-1 scorecard, but the teaming with Miller produced the bewitching clocking, and a 28.3 last quarter, that not only beat Keystone Wanda, a 13 length winner at Clearfield on Thursday, but also eclipsed the northeast PA oval's mark for her class, set by DVC Elegant Beauty just over five years ago, by a single tick. On the colt side of the sidewheeling action, veteran PA fair star Roger Hammer gave further evidence that his barn is heating up, taking two of the three divisions, including the fastest in 2:04.2 with Camturo Beach, a Somebeachsomewhere gelding he also trains and owns. Hammer's other winner was the Nuclear Breeze gelding Enjoy The Ride, also a full hometown Hammer production; the third cut went to Skylite's Finale, an Allamerican Native gelding who defeated a third Hammerite, Falcon's Breeze, to go one point up atop the divisional leaderboard over his stablemate in the Steve Schoeffel barn, Jungle Of Terror (who had been second to Camturo Beach). In the trotting contests, the stars were the Cantab Hall colt Markup Hanover, who defeated Roe Is Me in 2:05.4-29 for the fastest diamondgaited mile of the session; and the trainer/driver team of Syl King Jr. and Marc Mosher, who swept the filly trots with Chrissy O and Homepage (the latter defeating Monroe County). FINISHING LINES - Continuing an innovative formatting experiment, Honesdale will today finish the fair portion of its 2013 program with a card for two-year-olds starting at 2 p.m., featuring the sensational trotting colt Ruiz. They will then draw for the "2-day meet" portion of their action Tuesday (box closes at 10), with racing Wednesday (3 p.m.) and Thursday (noon) giving them four cards within five days ... Waynesburg will be drawing tomorrow (Tuesday; box open until 11) for their two harness racing cards on Thursday and Friday, which will begin (please take note) at 10 a.m. both days. by Jerry Connors
