Arque Hanover turned a two-hole trip into a 1:50.1 victory in Thursday’s $30,000 Preferred Pace at Dover Downs.

Corey Callahan sat second with Arque Hanover as Dancin Yankee (Tony Morgan) cut out the fast fractions until mid-stretch. Arque Hanover, trained by Dylan Davis, just got up to edge Dancin Yankee with Clear Vision (Yannick Gingras) taking home third prize.

Abe Basen, Tom Lazzaro and Robert Cooper Stables own Arque Hanover, a five-year-old son of Rock N Roll Heaven-A Pippin Hanover, who won for the 14th time raising his career bankroll to $323,461.

After his last two starts from the outside, Corey Callahan made good use of Post 1 driving Bushwacker right to the top and the veteran pacer led the rest of a 1:51 mile. It was the 24th lifetime triumph for trainer Chris Ryder and owner Henderson Farms.

Bushwacker fought off a determined bid from Screaman Seaman A (Vic Kirby) on the backstretch before pulling away to victory. Te Kawau N (Daryl Bier) closed strongly to beat Sicily (Allan Davis) for second.

The six-year-old Rocknroll Hanover-Dolphins Can Talk gelding has now won $549,337 lifetime.

Owner-trainer Gary Ewing’s Star Messenger made it two wins in-a-row when Tony Morgan sent the Jeremes Jet-Manhattan Killean gelding past Swapportunity (Jim Morand) after dueling down the lane for a 1:51.1 win in a $15,500 tilt. Feel Like A Fool (Gingras) took home third money.

Driver Callahan and trainer Davis came back to the winner’s circle when Jet Airway chalked up a 1:50.2 triumph in a $15,000 pace. Owned by Mike Casalino and trainer Davis, the six-year-old Jeremes Jet-Aromatic horse held off Mustang Art (Sean Bier) and Silver Fox J (George Dennis), second and third respectively.
