Don't Ya Know was on of five winners for Allan Davis

HARRINGTON, Del. - Joan Dalphon and Elanor Laws' Don't Ya Know ($16.60) and driver Allan Davis) won his second straight race Monday with a 7-to-1 upset in the $17,000 Open Pace on the opening day harness racing meet at Harrington Raceway in 1:52.1.

The 4-year-old Western Ideal gelding followed Feel Like A Fool into second-over position on the outside and hit his best stride in the stretch to pass tiring pacesetter Manhattan Rusty N and outkick a bottled up Lollipop Kid, who shook loose late for second, for a one-length win. Feel Like A Fool was third. Trained by Jason Skinner, it was the fourth victory of the year for the winner. It was one of five wins on the program for driver Allan Davis.

Any doubt as to the track condition for opening day was quickly removed as the fastest race on the program occurred in the 4th race when John Dayton's Just a Jolt ($2.60, Victor Kirby) cruised a 1:51.3 triumph. Trained by Jim King Jr., it was Just A Jolt's fifth win of a thus far stellar 2014 campaign. The winning clocking was just two-fifths of a second off the 4-year-old gelding track record, held by Western Ace.

Ross Wolfenden had three winners on the program.
