HARRINGTON, Del. - George Leager's Slick Tony ($5.80, Russell Foster) was a 1:52.4 winner in the $18,000 Open Monday at Harrington Raceway.

The 4-year-old No Spin Zone stallion surged to the lead in the stretch, passing pacesetter Blazing Bobby Sox for his fourth harness racing win of the year. Sicily was third. Slick Tony settled in fourth position early before a game first over bid under confident handling by Foster.

Trained by Leager, it was the 22nd career win in 48 starts for "Tony," who was the youngest horse in the field.

Jo Ann Looney-King's Little Ben ($3.60, Victor Kirby) won the sub-featured $11,000 Open II in 1:52.3 for trainer Jim King Jr.

Kirby and Ross Wolfenden each had four wins.
