Feeling Sweet surges to victory at Bally’s Dover

Dover, DE — Feeling Sweet benefitted from a perfect journey and won the $19,000 Fillies and Mares Winners Over/Select Pace at Bally’s Dover on Wednesday night (Dec. 20).

Tae, Feeling Sweet and Majorca N — the three outside mares — left in a line approaching the quarter pole. Feeling Sweet cleared for the lead at the quarter in a blistering :26.1. Majorca N, who was parked three-wide from post eight through the first turn, muscled her way to the top approaching the half mile in :55.2.

Disturbed Hanover sprinted first-over up the backstretch, towing Quick E into position to circle three-wide approaching the 1:24.2 three-quarters as Majorca N maintained her lead. The outer flow failed on the far turn, prompting Montrell Teague to tip 6-5 favorite Feeling Sweet out of the pocket. The 6-year-old Sweet Lou mare surged past Majorca N to win by a half length in 1:53.4. Tae finished third.

On the wagering front, the 14th race pentafecta returned $10,394.55 on the 8-4-9-6-5 combination as 2-1 favorite Kamala finished last in the nine-horse field.
