HARRINGTON, DE  - Art Stafford and Art Stafford Jr.'s Blazing Bobby Sox ($6.40, Stafford Jr.) notched his third consecutive win Monday at Harrington Raceway in 1:53.3 in the featured $17,500 Open Pace.

The 7-year-old Panderosa gelding led a fierce first over charge in which he cleared pacesetter Little Ben and held off all comers to the wire. Kid Pk was second, while Machamillion N finished third. It was the 27th career win for Blazing Bobby Sox, who is trained by co-owner/driver Art Stafford Jr.

Russell Foster, Ross Wolfenden, Victor Kirby and Tony Morgan each had driving doubles on the program.

Tuesday marks the launch of sports betting in Delaware with the three casinos in-state expected to start taking bets at 1:30 p.m. (EST).

Delaware is the first state outside of Nevada expected to roll out full-scale sports betting following the Supreme Court's ruling to overturn the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act on May 14. Sports wagering at start-up will include single-game action on baseball, basketball, hockey, auto racing and golf.
