Harrington, DE — The top Delaware-sired 2-year-olds will be showcased Wednesday (Oct. 3) as four $100,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund finals will be contested on a 15-race program at Harrington Raceway.
Post time is 5 p.m. for one of the richest programs of the year for Delaware harness racing. The finals are part of an all-stakes Pick-4 (races three through six).
The first final is for male pacers and features two uncoupled Clyde Francis trainees, Keepmywiglegametyt (3-1, Jim Morand), who swept his eliminations and Dashiki (3-1, Montrell Teague). Both are owned by George Teague. Jo Ann Looney-King’s Chillaxin Away (9-5, Victor Kirby) is the likely post time favorite from the rail after a 1:54.3 win in his elimination on Sept. 24.
The second final is for male trotters and the scourge of the division has clearly been unbeaten Andrew Glassmeyer’s Embrace The Grind (7-5, Jon Roberts), who is three-for-three in his career. The Keystone Activator gelding won his eliminations with ease and will look to overcome post seven in keeping that unblemished record intact.
The third leg of the Pick-4 is the filly pacing final. Only George Teague and K&R Racing’s The Lady Sheriff (2-1, Teague) won both of her eliminations and drew post two in the competitive grouping.
The final leg of the Pick-4 sequence is for filly trotters and includes three different elimination winners, Mark Groce’s She’s Spooky (9-5, Ross Wolfenden), Glassmeyer’s Dark Dutchess (3-1, Roberts) and Sarah and John Swart’s Royal Locket (7-1, Corey Callahan).
A $16,000 Open Trot is on the undercard, featuring Frank Chick’s Majestic Mistress (5-2, Mike Cole), who has won three straight.
