Penny Paratrooper was the only favourite to win her Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund division for two-year-old filly trotters while Cuddy Punk and Silence Is Bliss proved surprise winners in the other two splits Monday at Dover Downs.

Ross Wolfenden guided Carlo Poliseno and Foulk Racing Stable’s Penny Paratrooper, a daughter of CR Commando-CR Penny Lane, to her third win in four starts this season covering the mile in 2:01 in the first $20,000 DSBF prelim. I Got Spunk (Corey Callahan) was a strong second, while 23-1 shot Princess EB (Vic Kirby) got up for third.

In the second DSBF event, Marvin Meyer’s homebred Cuddle Punk, by Super Punk-My Embrace, came on for Allan Davis to post her first career victory in 2:02.3. Sparkle Pants (Eddie Dennis) bested Ohtobequeen (George Dennis) for second.

Silence Is Bliss, a CR Commando-Miss Courtney filly, was heard from in the third $20,000 trot. Robert White used the passing lane to overtake race favourite Callmemza (Jonathan Roberts) at the wire for her first win of the year, a 2:01 decision. Spunky MLT (Tony Morgan) finished third.

Public choice, Handsoffmycookie, one of two winners driven by Tim Tetrick, had just enough to outlast fast-finishing Kiss Dont Bite (Vic Kirby) in a 1:52.1 triumph in the $18,000 Mares Open Trot. Embassy Seelster (Allan Davis) was right there third in the photo.

JFE Enterprises own the winner, a five-year-old Art Major-Observe Me mare who now has won $77,970 this year and $1,306,219 lifetime.

The fastest win on the program came when Corey Callahan drove Mach A Wish home in 1:50.2 for her fourth consecutive victory. It was Callahan’s fourth of a five-win day. Rich Poillucci and CTC Stable own the Mach Three-Belinda Hanover five-year-old in the $13,000 Filly and Mare Winners-Over pace.

The freshman colt trotters take over with two $20,000 DSBF divisions on the Veteran’s Day card.
