Nova Artist takes Preferred Pace at Dover

Dover, DE --- Nova Artist won the $30,000 Preferred at Dover Downs on Thursday, Jan. 9.

For the fourth time this meet, Nova Artist reigned supreme in a top Thursday feature race. The pride of former Delaware champion Eddie Davis, now a trainer, and his wife, Kathy, was strongest in a :27.3 stretch charge to score a 1:50.2 victory in the $30,000 Preferred/Open Handicap pace. Allan Davis drove the Real Artist-Avon Lady horse to his 31st career victory earning $788,167.  EZ Noah, racing third from the start, scooted down the passing lane for Vic Kirby to edge front-pacing Adventure Bound and Ron Pierce for third.

Allan Davis and Ron Pierce racked up three driving wins each, Vic Kirby doubled.
