Driver Corey Callahan guided five winners on Saturday night during Dover Downs' 15-race program. Sageinmotion won the $15,000 Male pace and The Shepherd won his second straight $14,500 4&5-Year-Old trot on a night of big prices.

Callahan and trainer Nicholas Callahan paired up for two victories on the card with Indeman (1:57.1) in Race 3 and Commander Turk N (1:53) in Race 12.

Earlier, Corey Callahan opened the card with a win aboard J N Memphis (1:59.1) for trainer Chuck Chrissman, Jr. He continued his winning ways with Now Thats Art (1:54.2) in Race 9 for trainer Jason Johnson and Good Feeling (1:57.1) in Race 14 for Duane Stoliker.

The resident of Queenstown, Maryland has recorded 30 wins so far this year. Callahan is coming off a career-best season that included 450 wins and over $5.2 million in earnings. In his career spanning five years, he has recorded 848 wins and nearly $9 million in purses.

The "Dover Driveway" proved advantageous for several winners including Sageinmotion coming down the passing lane to overtake Mount Olympus (Sean Bier) in the final steps for a 1:52.4 win in the $15,000 feature pace. Tony Morgan drove the Image In Motion-Country Sage gelding to a lifetime record for the six-year-old owned by Mitch Rosenthal, Dan Palley and Bowl Stables. Tacos Du Ruisseau (Corey Callahan) put in a big effort and finished third.

In the top trot for young horses, Pump Handle Stables' The Shepherd made it three straight wins in the feature trot. Ross Wolfenden took the impeccably bred Kadabra-Loves Caress four-year-old gelding right to the front and set all the fractions in a 1:58 victory. Perfect Man (Vic Kirby) closed strongly to finish second. Enessee Ernie 9 (Kevin Sizer) saw a two-win streak end finishing third.
