Jim Morand steered Sniper Hall through the passing lane to score a 1:52.2 victory in the $32,500 Delaware Special while Proper Respect notched the fastest win on the card, 1:50.3 to take the $23,000 Winners Over Pace on Monday, November 2 at Dover Downs. Corey Callahan, who drove five winners Sunday, added four more in the second night of race. Ron Pierce had a three-bagger.

In the $32,500 feature, Montrell Teague moved Zee Barber into the early lead and then battled head-to-head with Art Director and Ron Pierce until deep stretch when Sniper Hall rolled up the passing lane to score by a head for his second straight victory and ninth win this year. Art Director came back in the stretch to finish second with Zee Barber a close third. It was Morand's second win on the program.

Eric Goodell took Domitian Hanover to the outside on the final turn and outbrushed front-pacing Warning Zone (Tony Morgan) to the wire in 1:51.1 to win the $26,000 Open Pace. It was an owner double for Larry Baron, trainer Josh Green and driver Goodell.

Proper Respect returned to the scene of his biggest conquest of 2008, the Matron Final last Fall, with Corey Callahan in the bike, for a 1:50.3 victory in a $23,000 Winners Over Pace. JJ Gladiator (Ron Pierce) was runner-up with Fields Of Honor (Eddie Davis, Jr.) the show finisher.

Nick Callahan and John Swart's Music Man NZ came from off-the-pace to bet up in the closing strides scoring a 1:52.3 victory in a $15,500 Male Pace. Devils Ivy (Tony Morgan) and Richard Henry N (Eric Goodell) finished second and third respectively.

Earlier Corey Callahan guided family-owned Mastermaker to a 1:53.1 lifetime best in a $14,000 3-4-5-Year-Old Male Pace. Trainer Nick Callahan and Shaun Callahan, Corey's dad and brother, own the winner. Im Outtahair (Montrell Teague) had a tough trip. After getting to the lead before the half, the three-year-old pacer took the lead and held it under pressure until the closing strides before wilting to finish third.

Callahan's fourth win came guiding Cathedral Grove home in 1:52.3 for owner- trainer Nick Callahan, his third, and second win for his brother co-owner Shaun Callahan. Equinox Seelster (Ron Pierce) was second with Long Life (Tony Morgan) third.

Tony Morgan and Jim Morand had driving doubles.
