COLUMBUS, MN. - Two-year-old Delco Voracious stamped herself as the filly to beat when her division lines up on Saturday, August 31 for a $20,000 Minnesota State Championship race at Running Aces. 

Following a strong brush to the front before the halfway point on Wednesday night, she cruised to a 1:56 score by a widening margin over Flick A Fly (Rick Magee) and Chilly Breez (Jason Ryan) in the final $6750 tune-up.  Already the winner of a Hanover Filly Stake at Balmoral, the precocious lass owned by Jesse De Long already has five wins in seven starts and over $30,000 in seasonal earnings.


A pair of two-year-old pacing colt divisions were also contested with Wounded Warrior (Ryan Lems) capturing the Class A split in 1:57.2; and V Mack (Adam Hauser) just getting up in 1:59 to triumph in the Class B event.

The $8925 Open Trot was also presented with Silence Son (Craig Banks) repeating his front-stepping dominance--this time in 1:56.  Silence Son, who is owned by Hinshaw Homestead Farm, held off Salutation Hanover (Nick Roland) and Franky Provolone (Steve Wiseman).

With just five nights remaining in the 53-night 2013 season at Running Aces a pair of former driving champions are deadlocked for the dash title lead with 54 victories apiece.  Rick Magee and Nick Roland are close friends, but neither is giving an inch in this down-to-the-wire competition to be named this year's champion driver.
