Hambletonian eliigible Manfinity, a 3-year-old colt by Malabar Man, trotted to a 1:58.2 victory in the $162,500 Dexter Cup Saturday at Freehold Raceway, wiring the field after starting from post one.
Driven by George Brennan, Manfinity won for the second time this season in three starts. He had won his Dexter Cup elim the previous week by a nose over New Hampshire Boy. Last year at age two he won just one of 15 starts, taking a mark of 1:57.3 at Vernon Downs, but finished third behind Ogham in the Valley Victory Trot at the Meadowlands.
Rovaniemi, a son of Yankee Glide, took second while the Donerail-sired Sullivan\'s Travels was third.
M And L Delaware Inc. of Wilmington, Del., own Manfinity. Larry Rathbone trains the horse.
