DANNHAUSER WINNING THE LAUREL TURF CUP LAST OCTOBER (Jim McCue/Maryland Jockey Club)

(Daily Racing Form) By Joe DeVivo:  Jockey Sheldon Russell completed a three-stakes win night on the Commonwealth Turf Festival card at Colonial Downs when he guided favored Dannhauser to a two-length score in the Bert Allen Stakes.

All five stakes were worth $50,000 and restricted to Virginia-breds.

The 5-year-old Dannhauser ($3.80) was making his first start since October, but is extremely fond of Colonial’s turf course, where he is 3 for 4. Dannhauser, trained by Kathleen O’Connell, ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:47.75.

Russell also rode last-out maiden winner Lady Olivia ($30) to a neck victory over Leda’s Swan in the 1 1/16-mile Brookmeade for fillies and mares and Long On Value ($7.80), the lone 2-year-old with a previous victory, to a 2 1/2-length triumph in the 5 ½-furlong Jamestown.

In the other stakes:

Lion Down by Me ($7.60), ridden by Xavier Perez, won for the third time in five starts at Colonial by beating Heaven Knows What by three-quarters of a length in the Oakley for fillies and mares going 5 1/2 furlongs.

Boltin’ Out ($3.40) rolled to his third straight win of the meet, leading wire to wire under Richard Monterrey to prevail by 1 1/4 lengths in the five-furlong Punch Line.
