Very Dark and Ballinrobe were victorious in the co-features during Monday’s card at Dover Downs, and along the way teamster Tim Tetrick put on a driving clinic.

Ross Wolfenden was in the bike to steer Frank Chick’s Very Dark to his second win-in-a-row to win his $12,000 trotting assignment in 1:57. Muscle Ville (Tony Morgan) came on to finish second, with Broadway Joe (Rick Murphy) the show horse.

Ceba Horsey conditions Very Dark, a Glidemaster-Leila four-year-old mare, to her third win of the year.

The outside post was no concern to Vic Kirby who left fast with Ballinrobe who went on to chalk up his fourth win of 2017 for new owner Don Fowler who claimed the Bettors Delight-Lisbellaw gelding last week. The pacer stopped the clock in 1:51.4 while defeating Lews Maverick (Morgan) and race favourite Cashendash Hanover (Tetrick).

Willard Reynolds now trains the pacer who has three wins in his last four starts. Ballinrobe won for the 22nd time in career and now boasts earnings of $262,956 lifetime.

Tim Tetrick started his five-win day taking both ends of the Daily Double. Driver Tony Morgan, trainers Josh Green and Brian Malone had two wins each.

Theresademoninme, Gural Hanover and Celebrity Pegasus head the Tuesday $30,000 Open Trot/Handicap feature.

This is the last week of Dover Downs 2017-2018 season with racing through this Thursday. Four $100,000 sophomore DSBF Finals and a $35,000 Preferred pace head the final day’s card.
