Paul McDougall and WJ McDougall Racing\'s Broke As Usual A ($24.20, Ross Wolfenden) earned his first win of the year in upset fashion Wednesday in Harrington Raceway\'s featured $21,000 Junior Open Trot.
The 8-year-old Malhana Gindin gelding took advantage of an early speed duel between Vicki Gram and Jake\'s Nordic, who trotted to the half-mile in :56.3. Wolfenden and \"Broke\" circled three wide approaching three quarters and held off the Federalist and Self Content for the win.
Trained by Peter Tritton, it pushed the Australian-bred\'s earnings to more than $330,000.
Later on the card, Harrington Raceway\'s winningest horse all-time, Bob Stevenson and Eric Davis\' 14-year-old trotter Stormont Northstar ($11.20, Eddie Davis Jr.) earned his 68th career win, and 31st lifetime win on Delaware\'s half-mile racetrack in 2:00.1.
Thursday, July 3, marks closing night at Harrington until the track re-opens on July 24 for Governor\'s Day at the Delaware State Fair for one day of racing with a special 11 a.m. post time. The summer/fall meet will resume Aug. 10 through Oct. 23. (Harrington)
