Four $20,000 harness divisions of Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund 2-year-old trotting races were held at Harrington Raceway Sunday (October 16). A 90-to-1 longshot won the first filly division as Winbak Farm's Great Quantity ($184, Jeff Fout) was a first-over winner in 2:03.3.

Manchester Boss was third. ‘Ranger’ earned his second career win in four lifetime starts for trainer Nick Callahan.
