Ontario Sired Il Mago, who has not missed a cheque since arriving at Dover Downs, won for the first time over the five-eighths mile course on Wednesday, December 7. His 1:52.3 clocking came in the track’s $20,000 Open Handicap Trot.

Tim Tetrick moved Il Mago out of second on the backstretch and then breezed to a three-length victory, his seventh of the year, which pushed his seasonal earnings to $102,046.

Scott DiDomenico conditions the seven-year-old son of Kadabra-Northern Style for CC Racing. The winner of $664,908 in lifetime earnings was followed to the wire by Tough Mac (driven by Corey Callahan). Celebrity Pegagus (Art Stafford Jr.), who was the only four-year-old in the race, finished third.

Tetrick had four wins on the card, including a victory with 20-1 shot Royal Lad. Yannick Gingras scored three times and owner-trainer Ed Gannon registered two winners. Tetrick and Gingras are now tied for first place in wins during the current Dover meet with 37 apiece, one more than former leader Vic Kirby.

Dover’s Thursday, December 8 card of racing will be headlined by a $30,000 Preferred Pace and a $27,500 Delaware Special.

First-race post time for Thursday’s card will be 4:30 p.m.
