Dover, DE --- Missile J was never headed in a 1:50 conquest in the Thursday (Feb. 1) $27,500 headliner at Dover Downs. Sometimes Said was even faster, scoring a scintillating 1:49.3 victory to keep his lengthy win streak alive. Corey Callahan drove a quadruple of winners.

Missile J was a 1:50 winner in the Open/Preferred Handicap Pace.

Tim Tetrick took no prisoners in the feature race, taking the lead Missile J in :26.3 at the start on the way to his 18th lifetime victory and second in a row. Scott DiDomenico conditions the American Ideal-Cantor’s Daughter gelding for John McGill and Brian Carsey. It was Missile J’s third start in 2018 and second win. Cajon Lightning, with Russell Foster in the bike for the first time, sat second the entire mile. Hypothetical (Tony Morgan), winner of last week’s 4-year-old Open, finished third. The event marked the end of a four-race win streak for Little Ben.

Back in mid-December, Bobby Glassmeyer picked Something Said, who had a two-race win streak, out of a $12,500 claimer. Since then the Well Said-Lady Sometimes gelding stepped up to win a pair of $25,000 claimers, and two Winner Over paces, including this week’s edition with Jonathan Roberts piloting him to his sixth win in a row, fashioning a 1:49.3 lifetime mark. It was his 15th career win and raises his lifetime earnings to $559,565. Machamillion N (Foster) was second in front of Gerries Sport (Tetrick).

Live racing is featured Monday through Thursday weekly with a 4:30 p.m. post time. No live racing Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
