HARRINGTON, Del. - George Teague Jr. and Teague Racing Partnership;s Daiymir ($4.20, Montrell Teague) was a 1:53.2 winner in the $12,500 featured harness racing conditioned pace Monday at Harrington Raceway.

The 5-year-old Mr. Wiggles stallion never looked back in his front end score where he would lead throughout over Q's Cruise and Late Mail N. It was the 7th win of the year for the Clyde Francis-trainee.

Later on the card, driver Art Stafford Jr. was recognized in a winner's circle presentation commemorating his 2,000th career win. Stafford earned the milestone at Harrah's Philadelphia on August 18 with Happy That.

Stafford Jr. didn't waste much time getting closer to his next milestone, by winning the next race with John Barth and Justin Brenneman's Meadowbrook Flash ($6) in 1:58.3. Stafford Jr., is the current leading driver at the meet.

Allan Davis had four wins on the card and has been hot since the return of Delaware racing on August 19. Davis won 5 races on that program and is currently third in the driver standings behind Stafford and Ross Wolfenden.

Joe Columbo, Mike Hall and Wayne Givens are the current top three in the trainer standings.
