Tight Lines won the Open Trot in the slop at Dover Downs on Tuesday night, Dec. 10.

Tight Lines and driver Ross Wolfenden, for trainer Jeff Gregory, left alertly but allowed Jack Vernon to reach the front at the quarter pole. Wolfenden then retook the lead and cut fractions of :27.4, :56.4 and 1:25.1 in progress to a 1:53.4 win.

Royal Becca J braved the wind and rain to race first over up the backstretch, pressuring Tight Lines. The team trotted a :28.2 third quarter but Tight Lines, the 1-5 favourite, proved to be too much and pulled away in the stretch to win in hand.

Tight Lines is owned by Jeff Gregory and W.H. Richardson.

Jack Vernon and driver Victor Kirby, for trainer Dylan Davis, sat the pocket and finished second. Royal Becca J, for driver Jack Parker Jr. and trained by his wife Carol Jamieson-Parker, finished a game third.

Harrington Raceway’s leading driver Art Stafford Jr. won four races on the Dover Downs card.

Racing resumes Wednesday, Dec. 11 with first-race post time at 4:30 p.m.
