Delaware: Southern Success wires


Left as the best pure speed horse following seven scratches, Southern Success led from start to finish in the $100,000 Dover Stakes for 2-year-olds at Delaware Park.

Ridden by Kendrick Carmouche for trainer Tim Ritchey, Southern Success ($3.40) was shadowed closely by Mister Alimony for the first six furlongs of the 1 1/16-mile Dover before drawing away to a 4 1/4-length victory. He covered the distance on a sloppy and sealed track in 1:46.71 to remain perfect in two career starts.
