Despite cold weather conditions, fast miles were in vogue Thursday at Dover Downs as Dynamic Youth tripped the timer in 1:49.2 to win the $30,000 Preferred/Open.
They say ‘Youth Must Be Served,” and in the feature race Youth did the serving. Hard-hitting Dynamic Youth, trained by Aaron Lambert, showed his class turning back five adversaries in 1:49.2 to win the week’s top event. Vic Kirby took the four-year-old altered son of Bettors Delight-Always True, who has raced against most of the top horses this season, to the front early and shook off competitors on the backstretch and rolled home a winner for the seventh time this year for J And T Silva Stables LLC, Kenneth Tucci and C And G Racing Stable.
Dynamic Youth has now won $175,400 this season and $841,957 lifetime. Texican N, a recent New Zealand import raced tough to finish second. Bullet Speed was third.
Eddie Davis Jr. got Its That Time going in the lane and the veteran Real Artist-Mib Hanover horse streaked past front-stepping Mustang Art for a 1:49.3 victory.
Owned by David King and E And K Stable Inc., Its That Time increased his career bankroll to $470,371. Mustang Art held on for second with Believe This Bob finishing third.
