Dover, DE --- Jerseylicious, the 2012 Sweetheart Pace champion, made her 3-year-old debut a winning one as she scored in 1:53.1 in a $6,500 conditioned pace on Tuesday night (Feb. 12) at Dover Downs.
Owned by Legacy Racing of DE Inc. and Pamela Curran, the daughter of Western Ideal-Jet Lag N is trained by Wayne Givens and was driven to victory by Corey Callahan.
Callahan put Jerseylicious on the lead past the opening quarter of :27.4 and she set subsequent fractions of :57.1 and 1:25.3 on her way to the 1:53.1 score. She was eight lengths better than runner-up Love That Badlands.
