Phantom Rusty pays $107.20 in Dover win

Dover, DE---The 15-race Dover Downs Tuesday program got off to a 52-1 start as Bret Brittingham guided Phantom Rusty to a come-from-behind 1:58 upset in a 3&4-Year-Old trot.

Trainer Bobby Myers and Carter Racing Stable owned the Lear Jetta-Rusty Lizzy Luv sophomore in his first 3-year-old start. O Narutac Supremo (Corey Callahan) and favorite Zoli (Trace Tetrick) were second and third, respectively.

Another longshot, 21-1 A Bettor World, won a $15,000 Male Claiming pace in 1:54.2 coming from last-to-first in the stretch for driver Eddie Davis Jr. Ken Tucci and J&T Silva Stables own the Josh Parker-trained Bettor’s Delight-Color Me Beachy gelding, also his first win of the year.

Post position No. 1 and a drop in claiming price paid off for Mike Casalino and trainer Dylan Davis, in a $20,000 4&5-Year-Old Male Claiming pace, as meet-leading driver Corey Callahan took Wildshot Hanover to the front and completed a 1:51.1 lifetime-fastest mile. The win was the first of 2014 for the Dragon Again-Western Duel gelding. Partner (Jonathan Roberts) was second best and Here Is The Future (Montrell Teague) finished third.

Jim Morand was in the bike behind 6-1 Idealist on the way to a 1:52.3 decision in the straight $20,000 Male Claiming pace. Louise Kinsey conditions the 11-year-old Western Ideal-Carolache gelding for Bill and Barbara Kinsey. Last Shot Leeton (Bret Brittingham) picked up second money with race-favorite Doubletrouble (Callahan) third.

A pair of $15,000 Winners-Over trots head the Wednesday card at Dover Downs.

Monday through Thursday post time is 4:30 p.m.

The Meadows
On the bench since Dec. 23, Dragon Tattooteen followed cover beautifully and pulled off a 15-1 upset in Tuesday’s opening leg of the Walter Russell Memorial Pace at The Meadows. Partyatbartsplace and Mogul Hanover took the other $15,000 divisions of the Russell. The series for 3- and 4-year-old pacing colts, geldings and horses honors the memory of the late Walter Russell, a Hall of Fame racing judge. Dragon Tattooteen was away sixth for Wilbur Yoder when he picked up the live cover of the 3-5 favorite, Fly By Ry. He roared by Fly By Ry in the lane to down him by 3/4 lengths in 1:56.3. Dealin Dan earned show. Rich Gillock trains Dragon Tattooteen, a 3-year-old son of Dragon Again-Tattootina, for Bob Key.
In the $18,000 Preferred Handicap Trot, Run And Tell Pap snapped an uncharacteristic three-race losing streak by zipping through the Lightning Lane to score in 1:55 for Dave Palone. Rembrandt Spur finished second, 1/2 length back, while Austin’s Jon Jon and TSM Photo Bugger dead-heated for show. Ron Burke trains Run And Tell Pap, a 7-year-old High Falls-Adele’s Jade gelding who boosted his career bankroll to $459,301, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and M1 Stable. It was one of four wins on the 15-race card for Palone.
