The betting public was all over Bo Mach in Thursday’s Open Handicap for pacers at Dover Downs, and the even-money favourite came through by a narrow margin.
With Corey Callahan at the lines, Bo Mach shot to the top from Post 5 and was pressed by Rose Run Uriah to the quarter pole in :26. Rose Run Uriah worked his was to the lead and proceeded to carve out middle splits of :55 and 1:22.3. Bo Mach rallied home in :28.2 and that was good enough to earn him the neck decision over Rose Run Uriah in 1:51.2. Island Of The Sea was third.
