« Return to News
Three $20,000 divisions of 2-year-old pacing fillies competed in the opening leg of Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) stakes action at Harrington Raceway Tuesday.
Eli Beiler, Clint Crellin and Elam Esh's Cinder's Baby ($28.60, Art Stafford Jr.) was an upset winner in the first division in 1:59. The Rockabillie filly left alertly from post seven to take the lead and was a two-length winner over Tobago Tie and Seboomook Beauty. Trained by her driver, it was the first career start for Cinder Baby, and one of three wins on the card for Stafford.
Jo Ann Looney-King's Stealing Bases ($2.80, Victor Kirby) was a dominant 1:57.4 winner in the second division over Rowdy One and Uptown Lover. The Roddy's Bags Again filly pressured leader Rowdy One near three-quarters before taking over and drawing clear of the field. It was the second career win for the Jim King Jr. trainee, who had a double.
The final division went to Charles Cochran III, Richard Lombardo and Josh Green's Littlebagoftricks ($4, Russell Foster) scored a dominant five-length win in 2:00 over Hey Hey Dbay and Rock's Rose. The Roddy's Bags Again filly controlled the tempo throughout and was full of pace to the wire in her first career start for co-owner/trainer Green.
Peter Paul Venturini's She's Pukka N ($3.80, Tony Morgan) won the $13,500 overnight feature in 1:52. The 5-year-old Betterthancheddar mare set sizzling fractions in her wire-to-wire victory.
Kirby and Allan Davis each had a driving double. (Harrington)
