Callahan bags four wins, takes Dover feature
Dover, DE --- Traverse Seelster continued his reputations at top trotter at the track chalking up his third $20,000 Open Trot/Handicap win in a row at Dover Downs on Wednesday, Feb. 12. Corey Callahan had another four-win ‘slam.
With Callahan in the bike, Traverse Seelster took the lead at the opening quarter and led the rest of a 1:53.2 mile to keep his 2014 winning record, now at three straight. Trained by Josh Green for owner Keith Pippi, the Angus Hall-Tavelin Lavec 6-year-old gelding fought off a mild attack from Jersey Boy (Trace Tetrick) on the backstretch on the way to his 24th career victory upping his lifetime earnings to $445,009. Green Day (Vic Kirby), a $1.3-million winner, was a strong second this week. Cash On Delivery (Vince Copeland), in only his second start of the New Year, came on to finish third.
