HARRINGTON, Del. - Delaware sired 2-year-olds will be showcased in four $100,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) harness racing finals Wednesday at Harrington Raceway.

The colt and gelding pacers will be the first to go post ward in the evening's 3rd race, which starts the first leg of the early pick four (races 3-6).

A showdown between Leonard Hubbard's Leonard's Legacy (9/5, Jon Roberts) and Henry Faragalli III, Nanticoke Racing, Arthur Feeney and Daniel Doane's American Nitro (8/5, Victor Kirby) is expected after both swept their eliminations impressively. Leonard's Legacy is a Tobago Cays colt trained by Nick Callahan, while Les Givens trains the Badlands Nitro gelding, American Nitro.

The filly trotters are next in the 4th race as Ed Kimmel and Don Wiest's Orabelle (7/5, Tony Morgan) aims for a third straight victory. The Keystone Activator filly won both of her eliminations for trainer Wiest. Mark King's Dabigspooky Bootah (9/1, Kirby) is one of two other elimination winner in the group.

The He's Spooky filly was victorious last week for trainer/owner King. Linda Mac Donald's Stella A (3/1, Ross Wolfenden) had a win and third in her eliminations for trainer Joe Mac Donald. The Anders Bluestone filly is making her third career start.

The 8th race will feature the colt and gelding trotters as dual elimination winners Touch Of White (8/5, Corey Callahan) and Rod Allen's Zulu (3/1, Allen) will square off. Touch Of White is owned by Breakaway Racing and is sired by Keystone Activator, while Zulu is a CR Commando gelding trained and driven by owner Allen.

Filly pacers will go to the gate in the 10th race as Givens-trained Bag Of Jewels (7/5, Victor Kirby) aims for a third straight victory for owners Faragalli, Feeney, Bay Pond Racing and Bonucelli Racing. The Roddy's Bags Again filly comfortably won her eliminations and is the only filly in the field with three career wins.

Owner/trainer Brenda Teague's She's Got The Lynx (7/2, Montrell Teague),sired by Southwind Lynx, and Legacy Racing of Delaware's Cinder Rock (3/1, Allan Davis) - a daughter of Rockabillie trained by Wayne Givens - each won eliminations and will look to upend the thwart Bag Of Jewels' bid for a series sweep.

The 15-race program starts at 4:30 p.m. and also features three $15,000 consolation events and a $20,000 Open Trot.
