This Is The Plan (McCarthy) circled three-wide through the far turn to take third.   James Stambaugh, Wingfield Brothers LLC, Milton Leeman and Alan Keith own six-time winner Done Well.   Hayden Hanover ($6.20) rounded out the trio of Sire Stakes winners with a 1:50.1 victory in the $55,205 third division (race 11). Matt Kakaley had the son of Somebeachsomewhere in play from the outset, part of a three-way battle with Somebaddude (Marcus Miller) and Nutcracker Sweet (McCarthy) through a :26 first quarter.   After initially protecting inside position, Hayden Hanover yielded to Nutcracker Sweet with a circuit to go and rode the pocket to the open stretch, where he pounced and drew off by a length. Macadoodledoo (Callahan) rallied off the cover of Babes Dig Me (Goodell) to take second narrowly over Nutcracker Sweet.   Julie Miller trains three-time winner Hayden Hanover for the Pinske Stables, Andy Miller Stable Inc., T L P Stable and Deo Volente Farms LLC.   A $30,000 Great Northeast Series event for open pacers (race nine) headlined the undercard, and Graduate final winner Donttellmeagain ($5.80) eclipsed More The Better N for the second straight week, scoring in 1:49.1 in rein to Victor Kirby.   The 4-year-old Dragon Again gelding worked clear of Rodeo Romeo (George Napolitano Jr.) after a :26.3 quarter before yielding to odds-on choice More The Better N (Callahan) with a circuit to go. As More The Better N was worn down by millionaire Sunfire Blue Chip (Andy McCarthy), Donttellmeagain was able to set sail up the open stretch and draw a length clear at the winning post.   Jim King Jr. trains 17-time winner Donttellmeagain for the Paton Racing Stables Inc.   For the second straight card, multiple players had the winning 20-cent Jackpot Hi-5 combination, resulting in a carryover of $1,118.61 to the fifth race on Wednesday's (Aug. 15) program.
