Beat Cop completes sweep, wins second DSBF title

Dover, DE — Following open-length wins in both of his preliminary divisions, P T Stable’s Beat Cop ($2.20) delivered an encore performance in the $110,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders’ Fund (DSBF) series final for 2-year-old male pacers on Thursday (Nov. 16) at Bally’s Dover, defeating stablemate Lovenbury by 6-1/4 lengths in a lifetime best 1:53.4.

Tim Tetrick was in no hurry early with the Dragon King-Beat The Beat gelding, yielding to early leavers Papas Son (driven by Art Stafford Jr.) and Come On Eddie (Montrell Teague) to sit third through a :27.4 first quarter before blitzing to the fore with a lap to go. Beat Cop cleared Papas Son just beyond the winning post, and he opened a two-length lead through a :56.4 half, maintained that margin to three-quarters in 1:25.2, and steadily drew clear off the final turn. Lovenbury angled off the pegs turning for home and overtook Papas Son for second, giving trainer Crissy Crissman-Bier a sweep of the top two spots.

Beat Cop, now a nine-time winner from 12 starts, has banked $165,225 in his career, having also swept the DSBF series at Harrington Raceway earlier in the fall.

The $20,000 DSBF consolation went to Rowdy Dragon, who rated splits of :27.3, :57.3 and 1:26.1 en route to a 1:55.3 maiden-breaking victory. Victor Kirby drove the Roddy’s Bags Again-Delightful Play gelding for trainer Bryan Truitt and owner Bryan Truitt Jr.

Three more $110,000 DSBF finals are slated for next week at Bally’s Dover, with 2-year-old trotting fillies squaring off Monday (Nov. 20), 2-year-old male trotters Tuesday (Nov. 21) and 2-year-old pacing fillies Wednesday (Nov. 22).
