Howard Taylor's Bo Nach won last week's Open Pace at Dover Downs after getting a perfect two-hole trip. So now he moves up to tackle the best pacers at the track and what does he do, how about wiring the field with ease.

Thursday's Preferred-Handicap Pace saw harness racing driver Corey Callahan breeze out to the early lead with Eddard Hanover (Tony Morgan) grabbing the two-hole spot to the opening quarter mile in :27.2. The order stayed the same as the field hit the half mile marker in :55.4.

Rock The Nite and driver Dexter Dunn started up from seventh place on the outside and they were able to flush Little Ben and Victor Kirby first up. Past the three-quarters in 1:23.3, the order stayed the same as Bo Mach proved to be much the best, holding on in the stretch to win by one length in 1:51.1. Eddard Hanover was second with Little Ben third.

It was the second straight win on the new year for Bo Mach. The five-year-old gelding by Mach Three is trained by Dylan Davis for owner Howard Taylor of Philadelphia, PA. He paid $14.40 to win.

Backstreet Shadow, who was making his 2020 debut off two sharp qualifying wins, was the betting favorite, but failed to be able to get into the hunt until late and finished four.
