Theresademoninme Wins Narrowly

Published: March 6, 2018 09:40 pm EST

Theresademoninme had just enough in a deep-stretch battle to nip Rock Of Cashel by a short nose in the $25,000 Open Trot at Dover Downs on Tuesday (March 6), and Tyson came back after a year off for victory in the sub-feature trot.

There were four trotters across the track turning for home in the feature, with Theresademoninme emerging and Rock Of Cashel coming from far back on the backstretch to race side-by-side nearing the finish line. The tight photo finish gave the Kadabra-Tortoni gelding the nod for his third win of the year in 1:54. Jonathan Roberts handled the driving duties of Theresademoninme for trainer Dylan Davis, who owns the winner with Mike Casalino Jr. Lazurus (Tim Tetrick) finished third in front of Celebrity Pegasus.

One race earlier, in a $13,500 trot, Tyson, who hadn’t raced since winning a Yonkers feature in February 2017, returned to the races with a powerful 1:54.2 victory with Corey Callahan in the bike. Trainer Ed Gannon posted his second win of the day and co-owns the Donato Hanover-Southwind Amiga gelding with Yannick Gingras and Frank Carzone. It was his fourth win in a row over two seasons, and he now has earned $103,825 lifetime. Torkil (Montrell Teague) closed well for second, with Holiday Promise (Tony Morgan) third.

Snappy Dresser made it two in a row to close the card with a 1:54.3 win for Tim Tetrick, taking a $13,000 fillies and mares pace. Huff Racing owns the Vintage Master-Elegant Girl four-year-old. It was Josh Green's second training win. Rear View (Russell Foster) and Rosietellthetruth (Callahan) were second and third respectively.

Crazshana got up for Tetrick to win a $12,000 winners-over trot for trainer Jeff Bamond Jr. and Bamond Racing. I Like My Boss (Allan Davis) led until the final steps and finished second. Wisenheimer (Foster) was third in the 1:55 mile. The victory for Crazshana, a Crazed-Keystone Shana gelding, was his first of the year and 17th lifetime, giving him earnings of $349,949.

Blownoutofthewater came on for Tony Morgan to overtake Tough Mac (Callahan) to win in 1:54.3 in the other $12,000 division. Classic Belisima (Stafford Jr.) was third. Blownoutofthewater is owned by Midsize Construction and is an altered son of Explosive Matter-Andover Mermaid.

Driver Tim Tetrick had two winners on the card, as did trainers Josh Green and Ed Gannon.

Eight start on Wednesday in the $25,000 Mares Open Handicap pace. Nerida Fanco N has been tabbed the morning-line favourite from outside post 8 after her runner-up performance in last week's Open. She meets Valuable Art, Apple Bottom Jeans, Scandalicious, and Bettorhaveanother in the tough field. Post time is 4:30 p.m. Eastern.
