Bushwacker, the richest horse of early 2016, captured the $30,000 Preferred Handicap for the second straight week during Monday’s card of racing at Dover Downs.

After Mustang Art, with Sean Bier, took the feature pacers to the quarter in :25.4, Tim Tetrick pulled Bushwacker to the outside in front of the grandstand to take lead at the half in :54.3. Bushwacker was in command through a 1:22.1 three quarters and had enough to reach the finish line in 1:50.4. Mustang Art was next best, while Doctor Butch came on in the lane for Tony Morgan to finish third.

The Chris Ryder-trained Bushwacker, a five-year-old altered son of Rocknroll Hanover-Dolphins Can Talk, won for the fifth time in 2016 and sixth in his last eight attempts for Henderson Farms. It was his 17th career win with a $426,212 lifetime bankroll. Bushwacker has now won $71,100 already in 2016.
