Stable star on the bench? No problem for the connections behind O'Brien Award winning pacer Wiggle It Jiggleit, with owner, trainer and driver all having a solid day at the office Monday at Dover Downs.

Trainer Clyde Francis had a three-win performance, with George Teague-owned three-year-olds Silent Bet and Nine Ways delivering as favourites and Hustings Hanover converting as a 58-1 longshot. All three of these horses were driven by Montrell Teague, with the latter being owned by the driver. Montrell also picked up another driving win to close the 14-race card with Fight The Truth, owned and trained by his aunt, Brenda Teague.

Singing Saint, driven by Tony Morgan, came from off the pace to record a 1:53.1 victory to win the Monday feature.

Morgan moved the Lis Mara-Celestial gelding three-wide on the final turn to quickly join the leaders turning for home. In the lane, Singing Saint fended off Go Collect N (Corey Callahan) in a stretch duel to register his first win of 2017 -- after two seconds and a third -- for owner-trainer Bob Stevenson. Rock N Roll Jet (Bret Brittingham) picked up third place in the nine-horse field. Singing Saint won for the 21st time in his career while annexing a $142,382 bankroll.

A female-dominant card headlines Tuesday racing, topped by Sweet Bobbie seeking her second straight $20,000 Mares Open Handicap feature.

Monday through Thursday post time is 4:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays are dark days.
