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 for Kirby.
The lone upset came in the final division as George Teague's Ain't It Fun ($11.40, 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 ($34.00, 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 raced over a sloppy racetrack.
