On a cold Wednesday evening (Nov. 13) at Dover Downs, six mares were poised to dethrone distaff standout Shartin N in a $40,000 invitational pacing event. And despite dropping her last two races to rival Caviart Ally, Shartin N ($4.20) proved able to bounce back with a 1:49.4 victory.

As the race unfolded, Apple Bottom Jeans (Corey Callahan) left alertly to control a :26.4 before yielding to Caviart Ally (Andy McCarthy) en route to a :55.3 half. At the five-eighths pole, Shartin N — who settled in fourth early — took her cue from Tim Tetrick, and the pair stormed past Caviart Ally reaching three-quarters in 1:22.1. From there, it was all over, as Shartin N glided to a powerful score.

Kissin In The Sand (Dexter Dunn) worked past Caviart Ally in the stretch to finish second, 2-1/4 lengths back.

Jim King Jr. trains Shartin N for Richard Poillucci, JoAnn Looney-King and Tim Tetrick LLC.

Two first-round $20,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund events for two-year-old pacing fillies highlighted the Wednesday undercard.

In the first division, a non-wagering event before the regular card, Bag Of Jewels posted a 1:57.4 victory over Shes Got The Lynx and Sprinkles On Top while in rein to Victor Kirby. The daughter of Roddys Bags Again and Artist Jewels was bred by Winbak Farm and is trained by Les Givens for the partnership of Henry Faragalli III, Art Feeney, Bonuccelli Racing and the Bay Pond Racing Stable.

In the second division, which opened the wagering card, Cinder Rock eased to the front past the quarter and pulled away in the stretch to defeat Emma and Spin Sumthin by 5-1/4 lengths in 1:57.2 for driver Allan Davis and trainer Wayne Givens. The daughter of Rockabillie and Cinderella is owned by Legacy Racing of Delaware Inc. and was bred by Elam Esh.

The second leg of the Dover series starts Monday (Nov. 18) with two-year-old pacing colts and geldings squaring off.

Since the connections of Greenshoe have decided not to enter him in the TVG, I think Shartin is now a lock to be named 2019's HOY, a well-deserved honor.
