Dover, DE - On a rainy warm November evening three harness racing divisions of two-year-old pacing fillies in the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund Series at Dover Downs went forward on a very sloppy track. It was a muddy sweep for Winbak Farm stallion Roddy’s Bags Again.

The first division was a non-wagering event won by Harrington final winner, STEALING BASES (Roddy’s Bags Again-End To End Hanover) in a new lifetime record of 1:56.3 by a 7 length margin for driver Tim Tetrick and trainer Jim King, Jr. The filly is owned and bred by Jo Ann Looney-King. Delmarvalousdesign was second followed by Kittyscribble in third.

The second division followed as the first half of the Daily Double and produced the Maiden win of HEY HEY DBAY (Roddy’s Bags Again-Fat Lady Returns) in 1:57.1 for driver, Victor Kirby and trainer/co-owner Bryan Truitt. Co-owner James Magno is also the breeder or record. Rock’s Rose was second and Seboomook Beauty was third.


Final division went to LITTLEBAGOFTRICKS (Roddy’s Bags Again-Bit Of Trick) in a new lifetime record of 1:54.1 by 6T lengths for driver, Russell Foster and trainer/co-owner Josh Green. Co-owned by Charles Cochran of DE and Richard Lombardo of OH. Filly was bred by Green Racing, Inc. Adrianna was second followed by Tobago Time in third.

Second leg of the series continues on Monday with the 2-year old pacing colts. Post Time 4:30.

Major Occasion A celebrated with a victory in the Open Pace Wednesday night.

Major Occasion A and Dexter Dunn left but had to wait for clearance as four horses all left for early positioning towards the quarter.

Artrageous and Art Stafford Jr left alertly from the rail and forced tucks by Wishy Washy Girl and Major Occasion A. The quarter was in 26 flat.  

Nearing the half, Soho Burning Love A pulled off the rail from sixth and induced Major Occasion A to move 1st up down the backstretch. The half mile was reached in 55.2.  

Major Occasion A was able to clear a game Artrageous midway down the backstretch.  Pressure came quickly, from the three to five favorite Soho Burning Love A. The two favorites raced as a team and paced to the three quarters in 1:22.2.  The quarter was paced in 27 flat over a sloppy surface.

However, in the deep stretch Major Occasion A dug in and fought hard.  Soho Burning Love A , who never before raced in the slop, met her match on this occasion.

Major Occasion A won by a half length in 1:51.2 as the second choice in the wagering at 5 to 2.

Major Occasion A ( Art Major) is owned by Enzed Racing Stable. R. Nifty Norman was the trainer.

Soho Burning Love was a game second for driver Tim Tetrick. Moments Of Joy stayed on the rail and finished third.  Victor Kirby drove for trainer Bryan Truitt.

Tim Tetrick scored with 5 victories over a sloppy track.

There are 4 divisions of three olds in the Matron Stakes on Thursday at Dover Downs.
