Super Fly romped in the lone $20,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) Three-Year-Old Colt and Gelding Trot preliminary at Dover Downs on Tuesday, March 13, while Tim Tetrick posted five wins on the program.

Art Stafford Jr. drove Super Fly to the front and had no trouble coasting to victory in the DSBF $20,000 prelim. The sophomore gelding owned by Leigh Raymer, Steve Moss and Stacy Johnson-Stafford won his first 2018 start, his four win in eight races with three second and built his career earnings to $79,500. A son of Super Punk-Mit Feds, Super Fly was followed by Bosston Cruiser second and Seafood Suzie Blue third.

Brenda Teague's Sheez On A Cruze won her fourth straight in one of two $16,000 Winners Trots on the regular card. A four-year-old daughter of Crazed-Topcat Hall, she closed to best Broadway Promise at the wire in 1:55.1 with Montrell Teague in the bike. Holiday Promise was third.

Ed Gannon Jr. trainee Dynamic Edge came through with a 1:56 score in the other $16,000 division. Vic Kirby steered the Mark Ford-owned Muscle Mass-Shasta La Vista gelding to his second win-in-a-row after three consecutive second-place finishes. Spunky Jack was second and Big Valley Speed was third.

Tough Mac overpowered six others in a wire-to-wire 1:53.3 performance in a $15,000 Winners-Over Trot. The Dylan Davis-conditioned gelding by Lockkeeper-Traditional Lady competes for owner Mike Casalino Jr. I Like My Boss finished second with Filled Donut third.

Tetrick drove five winners to give him 131 winners this meet, leading defending champion Corey Callahan who stands in second with 125 wins and only 11 more race days this meet, which ends March 29.

Go Sandy Go and Pedal Power lead separate $20,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund opening preliminary divisions on the Wednesday, March 14 program at Dover Downs. A $22,000, $16,000 and a $12,000 female pace top the undercard.

A Brent Outten and Green Racing homebred co-owned with Rich Lombardo is the one to catch in the first DSBF prelim. Jason Green prepped the filly with a 1:54.1 win last time out. The $100,000 DSBF Final winner at two takes on George Teague’s Ibetyoucanwiggle with Montrell Teague, Anne McDonald’s Cold N Chilly driven by Vic Kirby from the rail and Dorothy Ann and Chris Conner’s Lotsa Luck piloted by Art Stafford Jr. in a six-filly field. Bay Pond Racing’s Peak Of Chic handled by trainer-driver Jeff Fout and Amanda Wagner’s Whistler’s Sister reined by Allan Davis complete the line-up.

Dave and Leah Lewis’ Pedal Power drew post seven in the other $20,000 section. Also entered are Frank Johnson’s River Dreams with driver Mike Cole, Bunker Away for owner Bay Pond Racing driven by Corey Callahan; K.V. Jump’s Diabolical Spin drew the rail with driver Russell Foster and William Moffett’s homebred Lydia alongside. The other contestants are Brendan Cook’s Studio Session, steered by Sean Bier, and Bobby Myers’ Gloria Pierre with Jonathan Roberts.

Next Wednesday, the 2nd leg prelims take place. The top eight point-getters in each of the four divisions return on March 29 for $100,000 finals.

On the regular card, four horses fresh from victories are among nine starting in the $22,000 Mares feature. Shesarocker, Goin Again, Toodle Lu and She’s A Billionair, who drew the rail, seek to continue their winning ways. A $16,000 and a $12,000 female pace are also on the strong program.
