Hostess Lisa received only one call—at the finish line—to score a 34-1 upset in the $25,000 Fillies and Mares Open pace on another longshot-filled card at Dover Downs on Wednesday (November 8).

Miss Me Yet (Montrell Teague) and Terror At Night (Allan Davis) were engaged in a front-end duel as the field of eight turned down the lane, with the other contestants bunched behind. Tony Morgan found room for Hostess Lisa in the middle of the tight finishers to get up in 1:52.3 with Terror At Night second. Last season’s Horse of the Meet Enhance Your Mind (Victor Kirby) finished third in front of Miss Me Yet.

The victory was the ninth of the year for Hostess Lisa, a nine-year-old Sagebrush-Dixie Dame mare owned and trained by Brian Malone, who was leading trainer at the just completed Harrington Raceway meet. Hostess Lisa paid $70.60 to win, setting up a 952.60 exacta and $2,496 trifecta.

Tony Morgan, Tim Tetrick, Art Stafford, Jr., Ross Wolfenden, and trainer Linda Toscano had two wins apiece.

The sport’s longest continuing series, The Matron Stakes, caps an outstanding Thursday (November 9) card which also features a $30,000 Preferred and $25,000 Open pace. Next Thursday (November 16), all four Matron Stakes for three-year-olds headline another big racing program.
