Meet-leading driver Corey Callahan posted a half-dozen wins at Dover Downs on Tuesday, Jan. 12.

Callahan picked up his fourth of five wins guiding owner-trainer Gary Ewing’s Sweet Bobbie to a 1:53 score in a $15,500 4&5-Year-Old Mares pace. The four-year-old Art Major-Odds On Gobye mare won for the 11th time in her career. Playncardswitroddy (G. Dennis) finished second with Mildreds Button (Montrell Teague) and Fashion Rocker (Tetrick) third in a dead heat.

The prior race, in a $14,000 Mares Winners-Over pace, Callahan piloted Cheyenne Robin to victory in 1:52. Robbie Siegelman trains the four-year-old Rocknroll Hanover-Cheyenne Margie distaff eased by The Cheyenne Gang, making her first start at Dover. Hearts And Flowers (A. Davis) raced big to finish second. No Respect (Vic Kirby) was the third horse.

Fashion Showdown notched her second straight $20,000 Mares Open crushing seven foes. Unlike last week when Ross Wolfenden sent Fashion Showdown from well off-the-pace to victory in 1:51.3 at 35-1 odds, Chris White’s five-year-old daughter of Village Jolt–Catch The Show was one of the favorites. Wolfenden moved to the outside on the backstretch and she quickly shot past the leaders to take over and was by herself in the stretch in a 1:50.4 lifetime best time. The win is the fourth of the meet with a second and two thirds in nine starts since early November. Craig McInnis conditions the lifetime winner of 16 races and $175,405. Springforth (George Dennis) rushed home to finish second in front of early leader Scandalicious (Tim Tetrick).

Since arriving from Woodbine Nice Trip has worked her way up through the ranks with six consecutive victories, taking Tuesday's 13,500 pace for young mares. The latest was also Callahan’s sixth of the night, and second for trainer Joe Hundertpfund and owner Bill Sartin, who owns the Jeremes Jet-Nice Package four-year-old with Mark Salerno. Fabulous Frieda (Jonathan Roberts) picked up her third straight second-place finish. Michelle Rocks (Wolfenden) was the show horse.

Callahan’s six winning drives gives him a total of 98 during the meet’s 38 programs. Ross Wolfenden, Allan Davis, Tony Morgan with two winners each, thus four drivers accounted for 12 of the night’s 15 races. Trainers Joe Hundertpfund and Jason Skinner and owner Bill Sartin collected two wins apiece.

Monday through Thursday weekday racing begins at p.m. 4:30 p.m. Dover Downs is dark on Friday and Saturday. Live racing resumes Sunday, post time is 5:30 p.m.
