Jack Vernon tasted victory yet again in the Winners Over/Open Trot at Dover Downs on Tuesday night (Feb. 4).

Elysium Lindy and Home N Dry left quickly and established an early race position. Elysium Lindy forced Home N Dry to take a seat in the pocket at the quarter. Elysium Lindy cut the early fractions of a rapid :26.1 then backed the half to :55.3. Meanwhile he 4-5 race favourite, Jack Vernon, lingered on the outside for the speed to settle, then made his move.

Nearing the half Jack Vernon and driver Tim Tetrick made their move and pounced on the leader, pressuring Elysium Lindy to the three quarters in 1:23.1. Home N Dry vacated the pocket nearing three-quarters but soon went into a gallop. Jack Vernon disposed of a tiring pace setter Elysium Lindy. The seven-year-old trotted clear of the field in the stretch.

Blue Bird Jesse was able to avoid Home N Dry's break and closed to be second. Faithfulandtrue closed from last to pick up the show spot.

Jack Vernon won by a safe, length in 1:53. He scored his second win in three starts against Open company at Dover Downs.

He is owned by Howard Taylor and Mike Casalino Jr. Tim Tetrick drove for trainer Dylan Davis.
