East Rutherford, NJ --- In the $200,000 TVG for trotting mares (race four), Hannelore Hanover ($3.60) rallied from off the pace to once again defeat Bee a Magician, vaulting home and reeling in the quadruple millionaire for a 1:51.4 score.

Hannelore Hanover bests Bee A Magician yet again by overhauling that rival in the stretch.

Yannick Gingras settled the 4-year-old Swan for All mare well off a contested pace before sliding second-over behind Shake It Cerry (David Miller) on approach to the far turn. After she was carried into the mid-division, Hannelore Hanover angled three-wide off the far turn and found her best strides in the final eighth of a mile, charging home to collar Bee a Magician (Brian Sears) just inside the sixteenth pole and draw clear by 1-3/4 lengths. D’One (Tetrick) held third from a pocket trip, but was four lengths detached from the top pair.

Ron Burke trains 26-time winner Hannelore Hanover for the Burke Racing Stable, the Weaver Bruscemi partnership, Frank Baldachino, and the J&T Silva Stables.

Lady Shadow sustains first-over bid for victory

Lady Shadow ($2.40) used nearly identical tactics as Always B Miki en route to her 1:50 win in the $200,000 TVG for pacing mares (race eight), grinding down rival Solar Sister and evading the late-emerging Bedroomconfessions by 1-1/2 lengths.

Lady Shadow bests Solar Sister yet again to take the TVG event for pacing mares.

The 5-year-old Shadow Play mare earned her 12th win of the season for trainer Ron Adams and the partnership of David Kryway, Carl Atley, Ed Gold, and the BFJ Stable, emerging off the pegs out of midfield as Solar Sister (Sears) brushed into a :54.3 half mile and working to the fore with just over a quarter-mile remaining. After wearing down Solar Sister, Lady Shadow worked to gain separation on the field while Bedroomconfessions (Scott Zeron), who knifed through traffic to just capture second from a staying Sassa Hanover (Matt Kakaley).

Gingras earned a stakes driving double on the night with Lady Shadow.
