EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- November 20, 2021 -- Sitting patiently behind torturous fractions, Allywag Hanover ($6.20) had ample energy in the stretch to thread through at the pegs and outlast a late charge from 45-1 outsider Workin Ona Mystery to capture the $350,000 TVG Open Pace on Saturday night (Nov. 20) at The Meadowlands.

After riding the pocket to a runner-up effort to Enavant in last Sunday's (Nov. 14) Potomac Pace at Rosecroft Raceway, just outside Washington, D.C., Allywag Hanover found himself in a similar spot just off the pace — but took advantage of a longer stretch drive to reclaim victory. The 4-year-old Captaintreacherous gelding controlled a :26.3 first quarter before stringing Cattlewash out through the third furlong and then being relegated to third as Daniel Dubé brushed even-money choice Enavant to the fore in a punishing :53.1 half mile. As Enavant maintained his advantage to three-quarters in 1:20.2, Allywag Hanover was locked in by the uncovered Ocean Rock — but found room up the pegs turning for home as Cattlewash took aim from the pocket. The hot pace took its toll on both Enavant and Cattlewash, as Todd McCarthy pointed Allywag Hanover through an inside lane and reached the lead just above the sixteenth pole. Allywag Hanover was driven out to the end of a 1:48.1 mile, just holding off Workin Ona Mystery (Tim Tetrick), who cascaded four-wide off cover and flew home to finish second. Catch The Fire (Scott Zeron) finished third.

Brett Pelling trains Allywag Hanover, who now has won 18 times in his career and banked over $1.2 million, for the Allywag Stables.
