Tuesday's (Jan. 8) edition of Racing Roundup features results stories from Dover Downs and The Meadows.
Eight straight for Come Together
Dover, DE--"When you’re hot, you are hot,” and Come Together is certainly hot winning from cutting out-the-mile or from off- the-pace for the eighth consecutive time on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at Dover Downs. Corey Callahan drives four winners.
Claimed out of his sixth straight win two weeks ago, Come Together after a win by a nose a week ago returned to the winner’s circle after a 1:51 performance with meet-leading driver Corey Callahan in the bike.
|Come Together now has eight consecutive wins with this 1:51 score in rein to Corey Callahan.|
In mid-November, Josh Green claimed the Artsplace-Pleasantville gelding for $12,500. Stepping up, the pacer won racing for a $15,000 price and then for a $20,000 tag in his next two outings. He again changed hand being claimed by Kent Harper and Claim To Fame LLC and now has won his last two, both $20,000 Claiming Allowances, for trainer Mike Hall of the Doug Lewis Stable. This time, Albert Chief A (Allan Davis) was right there in the photo finish picture, but had to settle for second. Four Starz Q (Ross Wolfenden) was third.
Eddie Davis Jr. piloted the longshot of the day when Ryan Davila’s 28-1 Winning Solution set a lifetime-best 1:54.1 victory in a Delaware $7,500 Claiming Allowance.
Corey Callahan enjoyed another big day, driving four winners. Trainer Dylan Davis recorded three wins. Trainer Steve Bookstaber and the Wight Byrd Racing Stable made the winner’s circle twice.
A nine-race trotting program highlights the 15-race card Wednesday at Dover Downs. Sevruga makes his first local appearance meeting Green Day among a select six-horse field in the $23,000 Open trot.
Monday through Thursday, starting time, 4:30 p.m. Friday is a dark day. Dover Downs Saturday and Sunday post time is now 1 p.m.
Sent off the longest shot in the field, Cantab Lindy took advantage of the leader’s late miscue and pulled off a 35-1 shocker in Tuesday’s $22,500 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows. Run And Tell Pap appeared to have the race in hand, but the swift fractions caught up with him, and he broke stride in mid-stretch. Cantab Lindy was able to chart a course inside for Greg Grismore and score in 1:53.4, a career best. Tamarind fell a nose short in the Lightning Lane while the pocket-sitting Fox Valley Smarty was fourth-placed-third. Roy Mac Davis trains the 5-year-old Cantab Hall-Lindy N Caviar gelding, who soared over $100,000 in lifetime earnings, for Brent Davis. Aaron Merriman and Brett Miller each drove three winners on the 15-race card.
