Delishka N ($25.80) struck the front on the far turn and withstood a late rally from 34-1 outsider Sidewalk Danger to take Wednesday's (Jan. 22) $25,000 Fillies and Mares Open Handicap Pace at Dover Downs.

After winning a :26.3 first-quarter skirmish, Reclamation cut middle fractions of :55 and 1:22.4 with little pressure while Moments Of Joy rode the pocket after forcing the quick early tempo. Delishka N, who stalked from third, mounted her charge on the final turn, and Sidewalk Dancer followed late-developing cover.

At the top of the stretch, Delishka N overtook pacesetter Reclamation, but found danger in the form of Sidewalk Dancer. Delishka N dug in to prevail by a nose over Sidewalk Dancer in 1:51.1, while 4-5 favourite Bettor Joy N circled three-wide to finish third, beaten three-quarters of a length.

Delishka N was driven by Allan Davis and is trained by Wayne Givens for Legacy Racing of Delaware, Nanticoke Racing, Reginald Hazzard II and Gary Calloway.

Post time on Thursday (Jan. 23) is 4:30 p.m.
