Janet Hudson and Jo Ann Looney-King's Little Ben ($11.60, Victor Kirby) was an upset winner in the $17,700 Open Pace Monday at Harrington Raceway in 1:51.2.
Kirby piloted the 5-year-old Jereme's Jet gelding to his sixth win of the year after reeling in leader Major Uptrend in the final stages for the win.
Dancin Yankee, last week's winner, was third. Kirby is the meet's leading driver currently with 107 wins at the meet.
Little Ben boosted his lifetime earnings over the $200,000 mark for trainer Jo Ann Looney King.
Tony Morgan, who is second in the driver standings, had three wins on the program. Montrell Teague, Jon Roberts and Kirby each had a double.
