Dover, DE — The night before Thanksgiving and not all the population was on the road. Many were in the Dover Downs clubhouse. Two $100,000 finals of DSBF pacers went to the gate along with an early non-wagering $15,000 consolation.
Fillies were swift out of the gate led by the favorite Cinder Rock (Rockabillie-Cinderella) from the start to the finish, pulling away by 10-3/4 lengths in 1:53.2 for driver Allan Davis, trainer Wayne Givens, and owner Legacy Racing of DE Inc. The breeder of the winner was Elam Esh. Spin Sumthin was the place horse followed by Emma for the show.
The 10th race saw the freshman colts and geldings led off the gate by favorite American Nitro who was challenged at the three-quarters by Bebop On The Block (Gamblers Dream-Seboomook Mao) who pulled away by 2-3/4 lengths to win in 1:54.2. Down under sensation Dexter Dunn was at the reins for trainer Josh Green and owners Debbie Cook and her son Brendan Cook. The breeder was Garnet O’Marrow. American Nitro held for second followed by Undercovershamrock in third.
In the early non-wagering combined consolation it was the maiden colt Bookin (Tobago Cays-Page One) in 1:57.3 for driver Russell Foster and trainer Dennis Walls. He is owned by 83-year-old Marion Andrew, who is also the breeder. Iceal was second followed by Kit Kat Joy in third.
This wraps up the Breeders’ Fund races until these youngsters return in June 2020.
