Shartin N stepped up to the $25,000 Mares Open Handicap on Wednesday (Feb. 7) for a 1:52.3 triumph over a sloppy track at Dover Downs, ending long win streaks for two rivals.

The five-year-old daughter of Tintin In America-Bagdarin won for the fourth straight time, including her last race Down Under, ending Divas Image and Terror At Night’s three-race win streaks. With Tim Tetrick at the controls, Shartin N peeled three-wide around the final turn to take the lead on the way to a 1:52.3 victory. Scandalicious (Jonathan Roberts) moved closer to $500,000 lifetime earnings, finishing second with Divas Image (Tony Morgan) third.

Shartin N joins several others owned by Richard Poillucci and JoAnn Looney-King as a top-class performer in the Jim King stable.

On the undercard, Moments Of Joy, owned and trained by Bryan Truitt with Vic Kirby driving, equaled her lifetime record of 1:54, besting Goin Again (Vince Copeland) at the wire for a second consecutive win and fourth in her last six to win a $15,000 mares pace. The Lion Sleeps (Russell Foster) was third. Moments Of Joy is a four-year-old by Western Terror-Joy Luck Hall.

Montrell Teague guided Use Your Noodle to her fourth win in her last six races, registering a 1:53 victory in a $13,000 distaff pace. Faragalli, Feeney, Johnson and Nanticoke Racing own the five-year-old Artzina-Lo Gophobia mare who held off a determined challenge by Duneside Chella (Kirby) by a half-length. Skateboard Chic (Russell Foster) was the show finisher.

Tetrick had a driving triple while Teague and Callahan made the winner’s circle twice.

Another strong Thursday program is headed by the $27,500 Preferred-Open Pace. Missile J (Tetrick) won last week in 1:50 and faces Sometimes Said (Jonathan Roberts), who scored the fastest clocking last Thursday (1:49.2), along with Bailey Rock N (Kirby) Cajon Lightning (Art Stafford, Jr.) and Sicily (Teague) among the field of seven starters.
