I Like My Boss, one of Delaware’s all-time best trotters, is in fine form with Allan Davis in the bike for trainer Bob Shahan who owns the homebred with Jimmy and Ashley Parsons. Indiana standout Bluebird Reverend with Montrell Teague steering closed strongly last time for a second losing by a nose for owners Dennis, Johannsen, Reeser and Case, and leaves from the rail.
