Embrace The Grind embraced and overcame the challenge of his competitors to win the $18,000 Winners Over/Select Handicap Trot at Bally's Dover on Tuesday evening (Jan. 24).

Embrace The Grind, Highland Mowgli and Northern Express all left in unison as the gate swung open. Embrace The Grind secured the pocket behind Highland Mowgli through the opening panel in :27 before rushing to the top. Driver Tony Morgan and Embrace The Grind reached the half in :55.2. As the pair approached the three-quarters in 1:24, they came under attack from a first-over favoured Northern Express, but pressed on. In the stretch, late closers made last advances to the leader, but Embrace The Grind found enough to win by a half-length in 1:53.4. Northern Express (Russell Foster) was second and Fifty Ways (Mike Cole) finished a closing third.

Embrace The Grind is a seven-year-old gelded son of Keystone Activator owned and trained by Andrew Glassmeyer. 

Corey Callahan and Tony Morgan each scored three driving wins on the card.

Racing at Bally's Dover resumes on Wednesday (Jan. 25). First post is at 4:30 p.m.
