The second leg of Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) action for 3-year-old pacing colts and geldings was completed Monday at Harrington Raceway with three $20,000 divisions.
The first division pitted a match-up between the class's two heavyweights, Bags To Riches and Daiymir, both of whom won their eliminations impressively last week.
When the dust settled, Daiymir ($2.80, Montrell Teague) was the victor via a controlling speed in 1:53.4 for trainer Clyde Francis and owner George Teague Jr. Bags To Riches sat in the pocket throughout and was second. Hallie's Comet was a fast closing third. Daiymir, a son of Mr. Wiggles, notched his fourth career win in seven lifetime starts.
In the second division, Tina Clark and Brian Clark's Automatic Dragon ($3.40, Victor Kirby) completed a sweep of his eliminations with a 1:54 triumph over Henry The Dragon and Wake Up And Go. Trained by Bobby Clark, the Art Director gelding was a front end winner for his fourth straight victory. It was one of five wins on the program for Kirby.
The lone upset came in the final division as George Teague's Ain't It Fun ($11.00, Montrell Teague) prevailed over the favorite James Isaac and Suspinder in 1:56.2. The winner was sired by Custard The Dragon and notched his third career win.
In the overnight feature, the $15,000 Delaware Special, Sean Bier and Joan Hamstead's Im Supersonic A ($12, Victor Kirby) prevailed in 1:54.2 for trainer Crissy Crissman-Bier.
A rain storm hit the area after the fifth race and the balance of the program was run over a sloppy racetrack.
