Dover, DE — Crystal Fashion scored consecutive top-level wins at Dover Downs after winning Tuesday’s (Dec. 7) $25,000 Open Handicap Trot at Dover Downs in 1:53.
Northern Express launched to the top from post seven before yielding to Morairtime through a :27.3 quarter. Meanwhile, 2-5 favorite Crystal Fashion stalked patiently in fourth as Morairtime controlled a :55.4 half. Montrell Teague angled Crystal Fashion off the rail at the five-eighths mile to confidently march first-over and challenge Morairtime beyond three-quarters in 1:24.2. Crystal Fashion easily passed Morairtime in the stretch and won by a length for trainer Chuck Crissman Jr. and EVM Racing LLC.
Northern Express (Russell Foster) salvaged second from the pocket; Morairtime (Jack Parker Jr.) tired late and finished third.
Corey Callahan won three races on the card.
Wednesday’s (Dec. 8) program features two $20,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders’ Fund races for 3-year-old pacing fillies, the weekly Mares Winners Over/Select Pace, and a $3,351 pentafecta carryover in the last race. Post time is 4:30 p.m.
