Dover, DE --- For the third consecutive week, Dancin Yankee won the $30,000 Preferred pace and as last week, All Stienam took the $27,500 Delaware Special, both conditioned by Josh Green, at Dover Downs on Thursday, Feb. 13.
Ron Pierce made a strong move from fourth to first on the backstretch and then romped to his fifth straight win of the 2014 season, a 1:50 mile on a sloppy track, for owners Rich Lombardo and Baron Racing. The Yankee Cruiser-Dancewiththebest 6-year-old has been a convincing winner in each race during the streak. For the third straight time Texican N (Ross Wolfenden) had to settle for second-place honors. Adventure Bound (Vic Kirby) finished third in the field reduced to five starters after Special Forces was scratched.
As last Thursday, All Stienam came from off-the-pace to win the $27,500 Delaware Special, this time in 1:52.4 with Ross Wolfenden driving the Tell All-Odds On Stienam gelding for JJ&M Stable and Green Racing. Sunshine Superman (Toby Lynch), the leader, and Fool Like A Fool (George Dennis), alongside, cut out the fractions until turning down the lane. All Stienam, as he did a week ago, flashed down the lane for his fourth win with a second this season.
Feel Like A Fool finished a game second while Full Of Sand (Corey Callahan) edged Sunshine Superman for third. Program favorite Mustang Art was scratched.
