Dover, DE--Sir Globalop Z Tam swept out of second and came on to nip Alittleaintenough at the wire in 1:53.3 to win the $20,000 4&5-Year-Old Claiming Allowance on a very cold Tuesday (Jan. 7) at Dover Downs.
|Sir Globalop Z Tam won in 1:53.3 with Eddie Davis Jr. aboard.|
Eddie Davis Jr. driving Sir Globalop Z Tam stalked front-pacing Alittleaintenough (Ross Wolfenden) from the start and then rolled to the outside and just got up for victory in the feature race. Trainer Joshua Parker is co-owner with Nanticoke Racing of the American Ideal-Hank's Chip gelding who won for the 11th time in his career and raised his lifetime earnings to $144,133. Little Man Joe (Corey Callahan) finished third.
During the card, the passing lane contributed to six horses notching wins.
The cold weather, which reached the low teens, contributed to a three-second time allowance. In all, 11 horses were scratched in the 15-race program.
Allan Davis drove three winners while Corey Callahan, Ross Wolfenden and Eddie Davis Jr. had two wins apiece.
Spunky Jack and Jersey Boy, fresh from wins last time out, face returnees Cash On Delivery and Green Day, in the Wednesday $20,000 Open trot feature race.
