Nova Artist defeated five others to win Thursday's Preferred pace at Dover Downs in 1:50.2.
Allan Davis put Nova Artist into high gear in the stretch and the Real Artist-Avon Lady overwhelmed five foes for a 1:50.2 triumph in the week’s top pace. The Delaware Valley’s all-time leading driver now retired from driving for the most part, trains and owns Nova Artist with his wife Kathy. The win was the 32nd in his career for the 7-year-old who now has banked $798,167 lifetime. Ultra consistent Adventure Bound closed with Ron Pierce to finish second. Texican N and Ross Wolfenden closed with a rush for third. The win was the fifth top-class event won by Nova Artist, a former Dover Downs Horse of the Meet.


Jeremy’s Successor made good use of starting from post 1, as Trace Tetrick was content to sit behind front-pacing Sunshine Superman (Toby Lynch) and race–favorite Mustang Art (Ron Pierce) battling head-to-head for much of the race. Tetrick then pulled out in the stretch to overtake the leaders en route to a 1:51.4 victory in the $27,500 Del. Special. It was the 10-year-old Mach Three-Gentle Audrey gelding’s third win in his last four outings. Jeremy’s Successor is trained by Crissy Bier for Heavenly Ways stable.  Sunshine Superman put in a gritty showing to finish second in front of fast finishing Papa Ray (Ross Wolfenden), third.  


Callahan had a four-bagger for the second consecutive night. Allan Davis collected three winners while Trace Tetrick won two.
