Ibetyoucanwiggle caught favourite Go Sandy Go in the final strides in one of two $20,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) first leg divisions for three-year-old filly pacers while Pedal Power won her division easily on a windy Wednesday (March 14) at Dover Downs.

Montrell Teague moved Ibetyoucanwiggle from the outside into second behind Go Sandy Go (Jason Green) after the start of her DSBF $20,000 prelim and stalked the favourite until coming out on the final turn. Following a stretch long battle, Ibetyoucanwiggle reached the finish line first with just a nose to spare in 1:57.1. George Teague owns the Mr Wiggles-Betting Machine bay, who won for the first time in two starts this year. She has won $64,640 lifetime. Cold N Chilly (Vic Kirby) was third.

In the second $20,000 prelim, trainer Darrell and Leah Lewis’ Pedal Power and Tim Tetrick notched a 1:55.4 decision. It was the first start this year for the Roddys Bags Again-Calico Moon filly, who has never been out of the money in 10 races lifetime. She has six wins, three seconds and a third while banking $93,443. Lydia (Ross Wolfenden) was the runner-up with Studio Session (Sean Bier) the show finisher.

This week and next, DSBF $20,000 preliminaries are raced Monday through Thursday. After the two legs are completed, the top eight point-earners return for $100,000 finals on meet closing day, Thursday, March 29.

In the $16,000 Mare Winners Over Pace, Sweet Bobbie pulled heading to the clubhouse turn and Art Stafford Jr. raced the Art Major-Odds On Gobye six-year-old on the outside moving up to challenge leader Empress Deo (Teague) at the three-quarters and then got up in the closing strides for a 1:53 victory. Gary Ewing owns and trains the winner, who won for the second time in 2018. She now has 27 lifetime wins and a $276,376 bankroll. Hold It Hanover (Eddie Davis Jr.) was the third-place finisher.

Marion Beachy’s Berazzled won the richest purse event on the card when Corey Callahan steered a 1:52.4 triumph in a $22,000 mares pace. It was the Charley Barley-Razmataz Hanover four-year-old’s second win this year and Callahan’s fourth winning drive of the day. Goin Again (Vince Copeland) and Roselily (Stafford Jr.) finished second and third, respectively.
