Tim Tetrick recorded his 9,998th career victory guiding Christen Me N to a 1:51 triumph in the $30,000 Preferred pace to cap an outstanding Thursday program at Dover Downs.

Jim King trains Christen Me N for Richard Poillucci who purchased the nine-year-old altered son of Christian Cullen-Splendid Dreams early this year after banking $2-million racing Down Under. Sunfire Blue Chip and Corey Callahan cut out most of the mile before Christen Me N following cover moved three-wide on the final turn and rolled home followed by Sweet Rock with Vic Kirby finishing second. Soto came on third for Art Stafford, Jr.

Tetrick enjoyed a similar come-from-behind trip steering Poisonous to a 1:50.3 performance in the $25,000 Open pace for owner-trainer Josh Green. The win was the sixth of the season for the Art Major-Shes Poison horse who now has won $113,628 this year. Sicili (Montrell Teague) was runner-up. Kid PK (Tony Morgan) was the show horse.

As the horses lined up for the first race, Makenzie MC went down tossing driver Roger Plante to the ground and dragged him a short distance. The hurting driver was tended-to by the track medical crew and Plante was taken by ambulance to Kent General Hospital in Dover. He sustained cuts, scrapes and bruises and a hairline fracture.
