Dover, DE--Red-hot Corey Callahan continues a win-happy January, driving six winners on Tuesday (Jan. 15) at Dover Downs.
|Four Starz Q won the Dover feature in 1:52.2 for driver Ross Wolfenden.|
After five winners on Sunday and four more on Monday, Callahan build his North American-leading total to 43 wins since the New Year arrived.
Callahan swept both ends of the daily double driving Justin Brenneman’s Oreti Beach N (1:55.4) in the first and trotter Moonlight Casanova (1:59.2) owned by Niel Gargiulo, Louie Paglierani and Legacy Racing of DE in the second. Another trotter, Colleen Chambers Racing’s Coco Count (1:58.2) won the fifth race. Callahan then struck with a second Justin Brenneman-trainee, Wesmokempeacepipe (1:54.4), Dave Coar and trainer Keith Jackson’s PT Storm (1:53.3) and Nick Callahan’s Sound The Belle (1:57.4) to win the 11th, 12th and 13th races in sucession.
Meanwhile in the feature race, Four Starz Q, owned by John Emmons and trainer Eric Ell, rolled to an easy two-length win in 1:52.2. Ross Wolfenden drove the Cam’s Card Shark-Search The Road gelding to his first victory in two starts this year.

Six select trotters meet in the Wednesday $23,000 Open led by last week’s winner Mandabra.
Atoning for a costly break last week, Run And Tell Pap blew past his stablemate, Hava Kadabra, and went on to an in-hand victory in Tuesday’s $20,000 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows. Run And Tell Pap was rolling along on the lead in his Jan. 8 contest when an unforced break took him out of the money. Tuesday, the 6-year-old High Falls-Adele’s Jade gelding returned to form for Brett Miller when he moved first-over from third, gobbled up Hava Kadabra and scored in 1:53.4. TSM Photo Bugger shot the Lightning Lane for second, four lengths back, while the pocket-sitting Fox Valley Smarty was third. Ron Burke trains Run And Tell Pap, who extended his career bankroll to $312,561, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and M1 Stable. Aaron Merriman drove three winners on the 15-race card.
